I agree. After all th prince mentality by earlier popes, this is refreshing
In this case I think he was simply bowing to a queen regardless of the fact that she’s marginally muslim.

No it isn’t. This Pope is demeaning his office. He is taking the dignity out of it. The less he acts with dignity, the less others will treat him and the Office of the Pope with dignity. This will not bode well in the future when heads of State have no respect for this Pope or the Vatican when he himself treats his position in such a cavelier manner.
