The Queen presented the Pope with some British products, including whisky. She received a lapis lazuli orb for baby Prince George.

The Queen has met Pope Francis for the first time, during a one-day visit to the Italian capital, Rome.

Earlier, the Queen and Prince Philip had lunch with the Italian President, Giorgio Napolitano, and his wife Clio at the Quirinal Palace.

It is the Queen’s first foreign trip since a visit to Australia in 2011.
