MONARCHY BUFFS DON'T LIKE THEIR MONARCHS IN THE BUFF

After lopping off the head of a nude sculpture of Queen Elizabeth II, vandals in Canberra, Australia, returned with a sledgehammer to behead the nude Prince Philip statue beside it.

The sculpture, titled `Down By The Lake With Liz and Phil," by Greg Taylor, shows the royal couple lounging naked on a park bench, in none-too-modest poses.The work, part of a sculpture festival, drew the ire of monarchists, including one who attempted to cover it up Friday. Authorities say the vandals struck Thursday night and again late Friday or early Saturday.
