    The girl and her family had been waiting hours in hopes of catching a glimpse of the pope, when he arrived nearby and reached out to kiss the 3-year-old girl named Estella.

    Francis kissed Estella on the cheek, but she also did something else. She snatched the pope’s skull cap right off his head, horrifying her father and causing the Holy See to chuckle in delight.

    Little Estella reluctantly gave the cap back.

    The pope and the crowd laughed as he retrieved his hat and placed it back on his head. He then went on to greet other people in the crowd.
