MELANIA AND IVANKA TRUMP WEAR VEILS DURING POPE VISIT, A VATICAN PROTOCOL – SOMETHING SAUDI DIDN’T REQUEST

Posted on

 

During their Vatican visit, First Lady Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump were seen wearing black veils over their heads.

The first lady’s communication director, Stephanie Grisham, told CNN:

“Per Vatican protocol, women who have an audience with the Pope are required to wear long sleeves, formal black clothing, and a veil to cover the head.”

 

Unlike the Vatican, Saudi Arabia did not make any requests or issue any requirements regarding clothing or head scarf, Grisham added. The Saudi press praised Melania for being ‘classy and conservative,’ wearing a black jumpsuit that looks like an abaya, or as the women in Saudi is calling it – Melania’s abaya.
