Queen Elizabeth, Pope Francis Meet Face To Face

Posted: Updated:

Two famous world leaders finally meet eye to eye. Pope Francis and Britain's Queen Elizabeth met for the first time Thursday.

The meeting almost didn't happen. The queen was supposed to fly to Italy before Francis was installed as pope, but that trip was postponed due to illness.

The queen explained why she arrived 20 minutes late for their meeting, saying, "I hope we haven't kept you waiting, we were having lunch with the President."

The queen has met five popes over her 60-year reign.
