    After splitting in 2016, it looks like Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have rekindled their relationship, making their first public appearance together since the break up just yesterday.

    And to say it’s an expected date choice is an understatement.

    Katy and Orlando jetted off to Rome this weekend, but it wasn’t the ice cream or the Italian architecture that made it the destination of choice, instead it was a meeting with the Pope.

    Yes, really. The couple attended a Unite the Cure conference in Vatican City, stopping for a meeting with Pope Francis, both dressed in black with Katy wearing a veil – protocol when meeting the Pope.

    ‘Happy Saturday everyone, I’m here in Rome at the Vatican, to speak on meditation,’ Katy Perry announced in a video that she posted on her Instagram Stories. ‘I’m with my momma, my darling [Orlando], and my manager, Steve! It’s a great day! I am so excited!’

    She later posted a photo of her and Orlando meeting the Pope, captioning the snap: ‘Honored to be in the presence of His Holiness @franciscus’ compassionate heart and inclusivity. Thank you to @meditationbob and #TheCuraFoundation for making it all possible.’

    ‘I’m inspired and encouraged today, and grateful to share how meaningful transcendental meditation has been for me,’ she captioned a later post. ‘I hope you’ll choose to learn more about The Cure Foundation and how the newest technologies and cutting edge therapies are bringing hope to the world.’

    We hope they had a lovely time in Rome, but as far as dates go, this is definitely a curveball choice.

    Maybe they’ll opt for pizza and a film for date number two.
