Queen Elizabeth and the Seven Popes.

There have been seven Popes during The Queen’s reign - Pius XII, John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I, John Paul II, Benedict XVI and Francis.

Queen Elizabeth, Supreme Governor of the Church of England, has received two Popes on visits to the UK (Pope John Paul II in 1982 and Pope Benedict XVI in 2010). Pope John Paul II’s visit in 1982 was the first Papal visit to the United Kingdom for over 450 years. Her Majesty has officially visited the Vatican three times in her reign – in 1961 visiting Pope John XXIII and in 1980 and 2000 visiting Pope John Paul II. Her visit to Pope Francis in April will be a private visit.
