BRITAIN'S QUEEN, MEETING POPE, GIVES HIM EGGS, WHISKEY, BEER

Queen Elizabeth met Pope Francis for the first time on Thursday and gave a bemused pontiff culinary delights from the royal estates, including a dozen eggs and a bottle of whiskey. A Vatican official said the pope would likely share the food with other residents of the guest house where he has lived since his election. The Queen and Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, met the pope in a modern room attached to the Vatican's audience hall without much of the ceremonial pomp that usually accompanies such visits.
