Niagara Falls Is Turning Purple For The Queen — Not Prince — And People Are Salty

Basically purple rain.

Posted on

Numerous landmarks around the continent are turning purple Thursday night to mark the passing of Prince.

#RIPPrince The I-35W Bridge will reign purple tonight.

Niagara Falls is turning purple tonight, too, but weirdly enough it's not for Prince. It's for Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday.

The display will start at 10 p.m. and last for 15 minutes. And yes, it was definitely planned before Prince's passing.

Which is kind of the freakiest coincidence ever.

Could it be one last bit of magic from one of the most majestic humans to grace our planet?

Because as far as coincidences go, this one's a little too good.

And let's be real. As if anyone, on a day like today, is going to see that purple water raining down and think it was for anyone but Prince.

@canoetravel @NiagaraParks Ok gurl...

Nope. Nope nope nope.

But really, why not both? The U.S. and Canada share the falls, we can share this too.

@GardenStGooners @canoetravel @NiagaraParks @j3rfAFC Half of this Falls touches the US side so we can call that the Prince's share.
