While Papa's out of town,

you can watch him here.

24/7 Live Papal Visit webcast.

And Fr. Tim is liveblogging.

The Pope is now at Holyrood House with the Queen. It was good to hear the firmly shouted commands to British soldiers who do drill quite well, and the stirring sound of the pipes. It was rather windy outside; on entering the room where the Holy Father and the Queen exchanged gifts, the Queen said that it was a little warmer in here, and asked the Pope where he would like to sit.

The Queen presented the Holy Father with a book of Hans Holbein prints. Included was the famous drawing of St Thomas More.

Awww man!

Holbein! I'm jealous.

My prediction for tomorrow's front pages: the Pope to come strolling out in a t-shirt reading 'I went all the way to the UK and all I got was this lousy book of Hans Holbein prints given to me by Queen Elizabeth'.
