Pope Francis is due to have lunch with his predecessor, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVII, in an event that is believed to be the first ever meeting between a Pope and a former Pope.
Pope Francis will meet with Benedict for a private lunch at his castle residence south of Rome. The new head of the church is usually only elected once the predecessor has passed away, making this a first in the Catholic church.
