A servant to the Queen allegedly stole two prestigious medals from Buckingham Palace in London.
Adamo Canto, 37, of Scarborough, North Yorkshire, made off a Companion of the Order of the Bath gong and a Commander of the Royal Victorian Order meal, it is claimed.
He was charged on Monday, October 5, with three counts of theft by employee contrary to section 1(1) Theft Act 1968.
The Metropolitan Police said in a statement: "Canto has been bailed to attend Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 30 November.
"This follows an investigation into the alleged theft of items from premises belonging to The Royal Household. The investigation is ongoing."
According to The Sun, the gong was listed on eBay for £350 and belongs to retired Navy vice-admiral Sir Anthony Johnstone-Burt, 62.
Johnstone-Burt is currently her Majesty's Master of the Household and is in charge of "below stairs" operations.
The second medal was awarded and belongs to retired British Army officer Major General Matthew Sykes, 65.
Sykes served for her Majesty in Buckingham Palace from 2007 until 2010.
