Vatican protocol expects women to be dressed in black and wear a veil or mantilla for papal audiences. The "Privilège du Blanc" is a privilege held by female Catholic Monarchs which allows them to wear white when in an audience with the Pope. Currently, the Privilège du Blanc extends to Queen Sofia of Spain, Queen Paola of Belgium, Queen Fabiola of Belgium, and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg.
