I was recently remembering the all too short-lived Pope John Paul I, of whom Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace were quite fond. Here is a photographic look back:
Pope John Paul I meets Princess Grace and Prince Rainier III shortly after his election.
The effects of the "Smiling Pope" are evident on the faces of those who saw him.
Sadly, the next trip to the Vatican by the Princely Couple would be for the Pontiff's funeral.
Their sorrow was clearly evident.
