    A sculpture of a pig and cow wearing crowns, created by the once secret daughter of Belgiums king, has been removed from a town hall during a visit by his "official" daughter to avoid offence, the newspapers report today The work by artist Delphine Boel, natural daughter of Albert II adorns the town hall of the Belgian seaside resort of Coxyde. "The Royal Sacred Four Legged Monster", a 2001 oeuvre executed in papier-mache, depicts a pig and a cow adorned with crowns, and spread out on a bed. Boel, 40, made headlines on Wednesday with a book entitled "Cutting the Cord", in which she settles scores with her father. She once explained she had got rid of her pent-up feelings about her origins by fashioning heads of pigs wearing crowns. Her secret birth in 1968 was revealed only three decades later. Offspring of a liaison between the then Prince Albert and Baroness Sybille de Selys Longchamps, she came under media spotlight in 1999 with a biography of Alberts consort, Queen Paola.
