Vatican Formally Announces Pope's Visit to UK

The Vatican has announced the pope's visit to the UK from September 16th through the 19th. The pope was officially invited by Queen Elizabeth II and the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England, Wales and Scotland.

This will be the first official state visit by a pontiff to the UK, in other words, it will be the first time a pope addresses the entire population at the request of Queen Elizabeth II.
