Then-pontiff Pope John Paul is shown being lectured by Harry for standing and waving while driving the Popemobile. However, the pontiff does not drive the vehicle himself, but rather rides while qualified security personnel drive. Even if he had committed a crime, as representative of the Holy See and sovereign of Vatican City, the Pope has diplomatic immunity. See more »
