Crazy history of King Charles coronation crown once 'stolen and flattened with a mallet'
King Charles III has officially been scheduled for May 6 next year, following the announcement from Buckingham Palace yesterday (October 11).The coronation is to be at Westminster Abbey in London with Camilla also set to be crowned the Queen Consort.It will be eight months between the death of Queen Elizabeth II and the coronation of King Charles III, a shorter period than the Queen's crowning in 1953.READ MORE: Charles' coronation date confirmed but King 'denies Brits an extra bank holiday'During the historic ceremony, Charles will be anointed with holy oil, receive the orb, coronation ring and sceptre, and be crowned with the majestic St Edward's Crown as well as receiving a blessing.The King will be crowned with the heavily-guarded St Edward's Crown which is the centrepiece of the Crown Jewels and has only left its home in the Tower of London twice since 1953.In what will prove to be an incredible spectacle in Westminster Abbey, the crown itself has some story behind it.With the original St Edward's Crown having been melted down in 1649 following Parliament abolishing the monarchy during the English Civil War, the current one was made in 1661 for Charles II after the monarchy was restored.You'd think that would be enough drama for a crown in one lifetime but apparently not as here enters Colonel Thomas Blood.To stay up to date with all the latest news, make sure you sign up to one of our newsletters here.Blood attempted to steal the Crown Jewels from the Tower of London in 1671 alongside a group of rebels.He briefly had possession of the crown before an alarm was sounded but before that, Blood flattened it with a mallet in order to hide it underneath his coat.The new monde of the crown was made for the coronation of

King Charles III under pressure to return 'Ark of Covenant' holy tablet to Ethiopia
King Charles III is under pressure to return a holy tablet that symbolises the Ark of the Covenant back to Ethiopia.The tabot, which is currently housed in Westminster Abbey, was stolen in the Battle of Magdala in 1868, when British troops attacked the forces of Emperor Tewodros II.The Ethiopian Orthodox Church believes a tabot is a holy tablet that symbolically represents the Ark of the Covenant, which is two stone tablets of the Ten Commandments, according to the Book of Exodus.READ MORE: Royal fans spot King Charles III 'hiding' something in new Royal Family portraitGeorge Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury from 1991 to 2002, said that he is “astonished and saddened” that Westminster Abbey has so far refused to return the sacred tabot to Ethiopia.Because Westminster Abbey is a Royal Peculiar, which puts it directly under the monarch’s jurisdiction, the return of the tabot to Ethiopia may require the blessing of the monarch, King Charles III, who reigns as the supreme governor of the Church of England.The Ethiopian Church has a strict belief that tabots should only be seen by priests which is why the Abbey added a covering in front of the tabot in 2010, so it is no longer visible behind the altar.An Abbey spokesperson spoke on the issue last month and said that “there are no current plans [for its return], but the future of the tabot is kept under review”.To stay up to date with all the latest news, make sure you sign up to one of our newsletters here.Mr Carey further expressed his view on the subject and admitted that he is disturbed that the Church of England “has not returned a sacred object belonging to another faith and country”.The British Museum has the largest UK collection of tabots, holding 11 of them
