    How will the girlfriend open the second box (that contains the key to the first box) if she doesn’t already have its key?

    If the key is stolen (copied), what’s the safety of the lock? If that doesn’t matter, then the puzzle itself loses sense.

    It can be copied only there is no risk of not reaching the girlfriend as per puzzle

    In that case, there is nothing “puzzling” in the question. The statement that the key can be copied is irrelevant. The King can send the key anyway, irrespective of whether it can be copied or otherwise.

    The king cannot send the key with the ring

    That’s right, but it’s just common sense. No sensible person would send a locked box and its key together. There’s nothing ‘puzzling’ in it.
