Buckingham Palace requests ‘Trump Train’ remove image of queen from bus
Buckingham Palace requested on Wednesday that Queen Elizabeth II’s likeness be removed from a so-called Trump Train bus, according to a BuzzFeed report.
The palace confirmed to BuzzFeed that it was aware the queen’s image was on the bus and that “representations asking for [the photo’s] removal have been made.”
The queen is seen in a photoshopped image on the outside of the bus wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat and a QAnon brooch on her red jacket.

The bus is owned by Buddy Hall, who is an ardent supporter of the former president.
The Trump Train bus was seen last week at a Florida rally featuring Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) where the conservative lawmakers claimed that Trump is “still the reigning leader of their party.”
It was created as a “unofficial campaign tour bus to support the 2020 reelection of President Trump,” according to its GoFundMe page.
The gimmick bus was seen at Trump campaign events during the 2020 election cycle, according to BuzzFeed.
Hall posted on Facebook on May 1 that the decor on the bus will change, replacing some of the current figure, including former Vice President Mike Pence.
In the post, Hall said he was “taking TRAITOR PENCE OFF replacing with DESANTIS, Candace Owens, Don Junior, Laura Trump, General Flynn, Rand Paul and many others.”
