Queen of England meets Pope Francis

Apropos for the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha offspring.

Yes, the Masons have co-opted Knights Templar "brand" so to speak, intended (as is everything they do) to confuse folks without a sense of history as this 19th century Masonic invention has nothing to do with the 12th Century Knights Templar sanctioned by the pope to fight the Crusades.
