A little boy took off Pope Francis’ white zucchetto (skullcap) during a meeting with children and volunteers of the Santa Marta Vatican Institute at the Vatican on Saturday.

Pope Francis, 76, struggled to hold on to his skullcap after the playful youngster snatched it from the pontiff’s head.

The Pope had picked up the boy when he became fascinated by the white cap traditionally worn on the head of the Catholic church leader.

Pope Francis smiled as the boy carefully examined the accessory before carefully retrieving it from the curious youngster.

In the meantime, the little boy turned his attention to the Pope’s hair.
