A Pontifical High Mass is fairly manageable.  A Papal High Mass takes an immense amount of planning and effort.  To my knowledge, the Pope rarely celebrated Mass publicly pre-VII.

I think the first step should be a Solemn Mass in the Presence of the Soverign Pontiff.  That's more manageable if you want the Pope involved with the Mass.
Perhaps, if Pope Benedict wanted to celebrate an EF Mass publicly, he could celebrate a Pontifical High Mass rather than a Papal High Mass.

What's the difference between the 2 though?

Though I probably should know, I have to admit I don't know the difference either, and I'd be interested in learning.
I hope someone puts this on video for everyone to see!
