Cross of Wales

Pope Francis has gifted two shards from the True Cross to HRH King Charles III which have been incorporated into the Cross of Wales, which will be part of the procession at the coronation of King Charles. An interesting act of ecumenism for a pope to gift something to the monarch of England (whom has been the self-proclaimed "Head of the Church of England" since King Henry VIII).

This is a source of consternation among some Catholics - a relic from the True Cross should not be just gifted to a church (or person) who stands in "protest" (Protestant) against the Catholic Church. Please share your thoughts. Does this imply a unity which does not yet exist?
