The Pope and the queen have met together at the Vatican.

While taking part in a visit the pope presented the Queen with a royal orb made of deep blue precious stone lapis lazuli topped with a cross.

The orb is an emblem of royal power which ancient Romans used to represent the universe, before it was adapted by Christians who added a cross on top.

In return, the Queen presented the Pope with a hamper of British produce including goods grown in the gardens of royal palaces and whisky.

This is the first time that the Queen and the Pope have met.
