Not all catholics wear it. In our region, you would earn strage looks if you wore one (and I'm talking about catholic people in a catholic church). MT has the privilège du blanc and is a devout catholic and didn't wear one (she didn't wear one for her MIL's funeral).
That's because it would've fallen off 'cuz she was dancing so hard

 Star   Banana It took me a moment to understand this joke of why MT would be dancing at a funeral.  Thinking But then I remembered the great 'affection' between MT and her mother-in-law...   Spiteful Clown

Fabiola, on the contrary, had been able to inspired affection and love to her family-in-law, so the touching tribute they gave her.  Hug

Thank goodness we have Her Imperial and Royal Highness, Archduchess Kathleen of Cincinnati to remind us of how she is superior to all those other half-assed Catholics in attendance.  Both she and Paola wore the chapel veils, which makes is a tad bit laughable IMO.

Just curious: Was there an official U.S. rep at the funeral? Thinking  I'm guessing "no."

If we did send anybody, it would most likely have been our ambassador or someone from our consulate (I'm guessing here).  I think that's usually the case for the US.

In my opinion, the choice of mantilla versus hat at a Catholic church service is entirely a matter of personal choice. Neither is more ``Catholic'' than the other. And as far as the ``privilege blanc'' is concerned, that is only in the context of meeting with the pope.

I would assume that most of the royals who were in attendance there have a ready set of mourning clothing to be worn. I know that Queen Elizabeth always traveled with a set just in case, and, alas, in came in all too handy when she and Philip were in Africa and her father died.

That's what I was thinking, Pix. I just haven't seen any info as to whether the U.S. did send the ambassador/a consulate rep.

The type of Catholicism that Katie subscribes to does require a chapel veil to be worn to mass.  They are subscribing to an outdated and overturned (by Vatican II) form of Catholicism that was pretty much the norm before 1962.  Yes, it's a personal choice in YOUR view; in Katie's, it is not.

Almost a dignified service.
No Windsors and no Grimaldis is a good start for me but such a pity they couldnt keep  that piece of sh**t Juan Carlos and his fake wife away,
Paola and Albert looked bored, nothing new there, how did Felipe, Astrid and Laurent turn out so reasonably normal.

Well done, Mathilde and family.

It is simple enough - IMO the Monaco Princely Family are "half assed Catholics"
