Pope Francis meets with US Vice President , Michael Richard Pence , in Audience in the Vatican.

Pence last visited Ireland in September when he faced criticism over his decision to stay in Donald Trump’s Doonbeg resort as hotel location was some 290km from his main official engagements.

The decision, which Pence said was the suggestion of Trump, prompted an investigation by the House Oversight Committee in the US.

Pence made headlines earlier in the week after a video, which was circulating widely on social media, showed Prince Charles snubbing him at a Holocaust memorial ceremony in Jerusalem on Thursday.

Charles, 71,  is seen chatting with various dignitaries, he then approaches Pence, briefly looks at him, but moves on without shaking the US vice president’s hand and greets Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Buckingham Palace dismissed suggestions that Charles deliberately ignored Pence, saying the two had a “warm and friendly chat” before event.
