It's royal selfie time!

Prince Andrew tried his hand at snapping a picture of himself at a St. James' Palace yesterday.

The Duke of York posted the pic on Twitter during the Pitch @ Palace competition event.

He tweeted, "Welcome to #pitchatpalace I wish you all a great event, both entrepreneurs and audience."

During the event, a group of entrepreneurs has the chance to pitch their business ideas to the duke and several investors, high net worth individuals and mentors. Think of it like a real-life royal Shark Tank!

The duke told audience members that the day's activities were about "connectivity and ideas."

And he wasn't the only member of the royal family who was out and about.

Queen Elizabeth II arrived in Italy to visit with both President Giorgio Napolitano and Pope Francis.

The queen, who hasn't traveled to the country in more than two years, has not had a foreign trip on her schedule since she went to Australia back in 2011.

She appeared to be in great spirits as she met the pope for the very first time today at the Vatican.

Dressed in a lilac suit with a matching hat, the queen was greeted by the 77-year-old in a papal study rather than the extravagant apostolic palace.

She is expected to stay in Italy for another day, meeting with officials and taking in the local sights.
