The Queen (wearing the Queen Alexandra’s Kokoshnik Tiara, Order of the Garter, and the Royal Family Orders of King George V and King George VI) and Duke of Edinburgh (in the Order of the Garter) have an Audience with Pope John XXIII at the Apostolic Palace in Vatican City during their State Visit to the Vatican on this day in 1961, after their State Visit to Italy.

HM is wearing Queen Alexandra’s kokoshnik, not the Vladimir.
Long May the Queen reign
