Belém Palace denies malaise with church over World Youth Day announcement



Belém Palace, the Portuguese President’s official residence, has denied any malaise between itself and the church after it was prematurely announced that the 2022 World Youth Day would take place in Portugal.

The announcement should have been formally made by Pope Francis in January, but it was confirmed by religious site Relionline on Saturday.

This led some to suspect a presidential source may have leaked the information.

Belem has denied any involvement in the announcement.
