‘Nice hat, Pope Francis. I’ll take it.’

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 03/22/17

A little girl got to meet the pope today during his General Audience and…well, just watch.

CNN has some background:

It’s 3-year-old Estella Westrick’s first afternoon in Rome and she’s already causing a stir.

When her family took her to meet the Pope after his Wednesday audience, she tried to steal his skullcap! Video shows a Vatican aide, known as a Papal Gentleman, lifting Estella to meet the Pope. As the Pope plants a kiss on Estella, she reaches for his zucchetto and plucks it off his head.
Read on. The little girl is from Atlanta.
