Trumpsupporter to remove an image of the Queenfrom his bus.

An image of Queen Elizabeth II wearing a "Make American Great Again" hat on an unofficial campaign bus known as the "Trump Train" has caught the attention of Buckingham Palace, BuzzFeed News reported.
Buckingham Palace did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment, but a spokesperson told BuzzFeed News that "representations asking for [the photo's] removal have been made."
Hall told Insider that he has not heard from anyone at Buckingham Palace, but he said he was in the process of redecorating the bus and had planned to remove the image anyway.
Hall wrote on the Trump Train's official Facebook page on May 1 that the bus's decor would be updated within two weeks to remove the image of "traitor Pence," among other images.
"When we decided to redo the whole bus again, I didn't want to put any old images on there," he told Insider.
Hall said he found the doctored image of the Queen on the internet when decorating the bus back in 2019, but isn't sure of its original source.
Hall said he has been taking the bus around the country to support Trump's reelection.
"I've never voted in my life, so I'm not a political person, but I figured the president made a lot of sacrifices in his life to try to make America great," he said of the inspiration behind the bus.
The Trump Train recently made an appearance at a Republican rally for Reps. Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene in The Villages, Florida, on May 7.
"I've never been a Democrat or Republican, but the Trumps are Republicans, so naturally, I go to Republican events to draw people to their events," Hall said.
