Buckingham Palace demands ‘Trump Train’ bus removes doctored image of Queen wearing MAGA hat and QAnon brooch

BUCKINGHAM Palace has ordered for a forged picture of the Queen donning a MAGA hat and QAnon brooch be erased from the “Trump Train” bus.

The doctored image of Elizabeth II has been slapped across the vehicle for around a year – but came into the Palace’s attention after it pulled up in Florida last week.

A Palace spokesman confirmed to Buzzfeed that they are aware of the picture being used, and that “representations asking for (the photo’s) removal have been made”.

The bus was seen in the Sunshine State last week during an “America First” rally being held by Reps Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor.

It is not officially linked to Donald Trump, and is instead owned and operated by a supporter of the ex-president called Buddy Hall.

Gaetz’s spokesman has hit back at the Palace’s request, however.

“We’re sure Her Majesty has greater concerns than motor vehicle traffic in The Villages, Florida.” Harlan Hill told BuzzFeed.

This sentiment was echoed by Greene’s spokesman, who said: “You do know what a meme is right? Isn’t that what Buzzfeed is all about?”

The original snap of the Queen was taken by Christopher Furlong – a photographer for Getty Images – back in 2011 in Anglesey, Wales.

The bus recently underwent a makeover as Trump teases a 2024 reelection bid[/caption]

On a GoFundMe page Hall set up last year, Hall hailed the vehicle as” the unofficial campaign tour bus to support the 2020 reelection of President Trump”.

Hall set an ambitious fundraising target of $10,000 for “expenses to keep it traveling across the USA” – with the actual amount donated paling against this at just £795.

The bus is splattered with a collage of falsified images, including one of former president Ronald Reagan wearing a red hat and one of Trump’s head on a muscly body.

It comes as Trump teases a 2024 reelection bid as he sets his sights back on the White House after losing out to Joe Biden in the 2020 election – a defeat Trump continues to deny.

In a Facebook video, Hall said the bus had recently undergone a makeover to change “Trump Pence 2020” to “2024” – further fuelling rumors of a Trump comeback.

“We’re on the Trump 2024 revenge tour,” Hall said.  

Trump has yet to confirm whether he will throw his hat in the ring for the 2024 election.

He has, however, reportedly left Mar-a-Lago to spend the summer in New Jersey as he plots whether to run for the White House again.

Last week, he stopped short of announcing his candidacy in an interview with conservative firebrand Candace Owens – although admitted that Trump supporters would be “very happy” with his decision.
