The Pontiff had a rather busy day yesterday:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-11344973

Further the Pontiff visited Lambeth Palace,the first ever by a Pope since Henri VIII established
the Church of England.

In the evening there was a prayer with and for all denominations at the Westminster Abbey,
Both the Pope and the Bishop of Canterbury prayed at the tomb of Edward the Confessor.

The Queen didn´t have much choice in who she received... the invitation was extended by the Brown government and HM s obliged to do the welcome thingy...  The Vatican is not a state which is recognised by the United Nations - its existence is an arrangement with the Italian Govt which dates back to the Lateran Treaty in the 20´s.  I am not sure how comfortable HM will be with the whole visit, priest sex abuse scandals aside... HM is no bigot, however, her Coronation vow demanded that she uphold the Protestant faith, and welcomng the Roman Pontiff doesn´t quite synch with that... despite the current love in with the ridculous wooly incumbent Archbshop of Canterbury.  The whole farce of the visit is so typical of the prevailing love of gesture and desire to please, but unfortunately we don´t seem to have any real substance or belief left in this country ... certainly not among the Church / ruling establishment.

I think there is much contraversy with this pope on every thing from Hitler Youth to covering up priests who raped boys. There is understanding of dismay from some people. The pope's further attempt to try to covert Anglicans to his church (those who oppose women priests in general) is hardly friendly. However as a head of State (Vatican is a country and one of the religious center of the world), his visit cannot be denied. I think the Queen did a good job as a host. She was however never attracted to that denomination like some of her family (like Katherine, Duchess of Kent and her younger son, Lord Downpatrick & of course Princess Michael of Kent).
The Duchess of Kents younger son is NOT Lord Downpatrick (that is Lord Nicholas Windsor).Lord Downpatrick is the son of her elder son The Earl of St Andrews.

Well...Princess Michael of Kent, Katherine Duchess of Kent & Lord Nicholas Windsor are active practicing Catholics. I expect them to be present when the Pope is in Britian.

It must have pleased them. I think Katherine Duchess of Kent is very spirtual and ardent in her new religion.

HM had her heating subsidy vetood.Having to keep up a derelict hut like Buckhouse comes with trouble,
the gov should get spanish peppers in their butts and get a go at renovating the place.The work it would
take would get a load of people at work in this hyped up bull of a "crisis".

I am removing the off-topic and inflammatory posts. I believe we already have a section to discuss the failing of the Pope and Catholic Church--separate from one that's more flattering and dealing mostly with mundane matters such as trips. Please take your viewpoints to one of those 2 threads depending on your preference. This thread is for Queen Elizabeth II. I have left the beginning posts which deal with the strict issue of the visit. Any personal attacks on other posters or their religious beliefs (Catholic, Orthodox, Jewish, Muslim, Anglican, Protestant, name it) will not be tolerated.

But I do wonder what the Queen think about the Catholic religion and the pope in general.

we are unlikely ever to know anything specific as the Queen is famous for her discretion.

Yes. especially since she met so many Popes since she became queen.
