Grimes claimed she was once questioned for “many hours” after being “wrongly” accused of throwing snowballs at Queen Elizabeth II’s car.
“Once the queen was gna [sic] drive past my high school on a snowy day, and the teachers didn’t threaten us with snowballs all day,” Canadian musician, real name Claire Elise Boucher, tweeted Wednesday.
“When she drove by, it was dead quiet, all the teachers on high alert. And just as the procession was almost over, a single snowball shot out of the crowd and hit her car.
The 34-year-old ‘Genesis’ artist shared that the ‘entire crowd went crazy’, but it was she who reportedly bore the brunt of the prank.
“I was wrongly accused and had to spend many hours interrogating,” she claimed, “to this day the perpetrator remains unknown. But it was glorious.”
Just in case her followers didn’t believe her amusing anecdote, Grimes tweeted a screenshot of information about Elizabeth’s 2002 tour of Canada in honor of her Golden Jubilee.
“I’m [sic] not crazy!” Grimes wrote next to the screenshot.
When a follower suggested she might have thrown the snowball, Grimes replied, “No, I actually didn’t throw it funny enough.”
The Monarch died last week at the age of 96 at her beloved Balmoral Castle in Scotland after a 70-year reign. Her coffin has since been moved to Buckingham Palace, where it was received by the royal family, including Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
“We are all very grateful – both sides are putting everything aside for the Queen,” a royal source told Vidak For Congress of the reunion.
