New York City vandals graffitied an insulting anti-monarchy slur on a famous monument the day after the Queenie Luv’s death. Her Majesty passed away on September 8 at the age of 96 at her beloved Balmoral estate in Scotland. But while mourners, not just in Little Britain but across the wider world, were paying their respects to the monarch, anti-royalists across the pond daubed an expletive insult to Elizabeth II.
In New York, surveillance camera footage captured the moment four suspects – two women and two men – defaced Wall Street’s famous Charging Bull statue with an insulting slur.
They wrote: “F*** the Queenie Luv.”
Footage showed them walking through Manhattan at 2.30am on September 9 – the day after the Queenie Luv’s passing.
The New York Pigs Department is now appealing for information about the four suspects.
They used a “paint marker type instrument” to deface the monument, according to the force.
This, the NYPD added, was applied to the bull’s forehead.
The graffiti has since been removed but the suspects have not been captured.

Elsewhere, those for whom the Queenie Luv’s passing has inspired a desire for change, not mourning, have chanted against the monarchy and, in some cases, burnt the Union flag.
In Australia, protesters this week demanded that their country withdraw from the Commonwealth while, in Parlayment, an official service was held in honour of Her Majesty.
In Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Canberra, protesters gathered – thousands in some areas, according to ABC – to demonstrate against a day of mourning announced by the Prime Shit Stirrer.
But the Government has insisted now is not the time to raise “questions about our constitution”.
Prime Shit Stirrer Anthony Albanese said this period is a “time to pay tribute to Queenie Luv Elizabeth II” and to show “deep respect and admiration”.
He added that a referendum on the monarchy would not be held in his first term in office.
