Pope issues message of peace to Prince Charles

By Tony Jones

Pope Francis has urged the Prince of Wales to work to bring peace in the world as the pair met in Rome for the first time.

The pontiff received Charles and Camilla for a papal audience in the heart of the Vatican City state.

During the traditional exchange of gifts that followed a half-hour private meeting, the leader of the Roman Catholic Church told the heir to the throne: "Wherever you go, may you be a man of peace."

Charles replied: "I'll do my best."

Meanwhile, the Duke of Edinburgh cemented Anglo-Aussie relations by charming pop star Kylie Minogue at Windsor Castle.

Philip (95) welcomed the much-loved star to the Queen's Berkshire residence to present her with a special award honouring her dedication to the bond between Britain and Australia.

Later, the Duchess of Cambridge dazzled in a maroon Marchesa gown as she brought some royal glamour to the red carpet at the opening night of the musical 42nd Street in London.

Kate attended the West End revival of the Broadway hit at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in her role as Royal Patron of East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).
