Grimes has revealed that she was once wrongly accused of throwing a snowball at the Queen.
Following the news of Queen Elizabeth II's death, media attention has been solely focused on the British monarchy over the past week.
And it all started when the royal took a tour through Canada.
In a thread, the Canadian singer-songwriter said: "Once the queen was gna drive past my high school on a snow day, and all day the teachers threatened us no snow balls.
"As she drove past it was dead silent, all teachers high alert. And just as the procession was almost past a single snowball arced from the crowd & hit her car."
She continued: "Entire crowd erupted into insanity. I was wrongfully accused and had to spend many hours in interrogations, still to this day the culprit remains unknown. But it was glorious."
Grimes followed this up with a screenshot of the Wikipedia page which showed the Queen toured a number of Canadian provinces in 2002 as part of her Golden Jubilee, writing: "Im not crazy!"

Dozens of people have commented on the hilarious story, with some still speculating that Grimes was the culprit despite her claims of innocence.
"You threw a snowball didn’t you?" quipped one, to which Grimes replied, "No I actually did not throw it funnily enough."
"That's something I would have done in high school," joked another, while a third added, "Love this piece of Grimes lore."
Last month, Grimes took to Twitter for an altogether different reason – rather than Queen-related content, she took aim at Mark Zuckerberg.

Although the Facebook founder and CEO of parent company Meta is excited about transforming his social media network into a metaverse, Grimes isn't convinced he's the man to do it.
Sharing an image of his avatar, the musician and ex of Elon Musk tweeted: "If zuck 'oversees the Metaverse' it is dead and people who care about art and culture are building something else. also this is bad art.
"The quality of this image alone speaks to how wildly under qualified he is to build alternate reality, literally every indie game looks better."
Whether or not Zuck is perturbed by her criticism is yet to be seen, but ultimately he's confident about the development of his metaverse.
Speaking to CNBC in June, he said: "I've been really happy with how that's gone. It has exceeded my expectations.
"But I still think it's going to take a while for it to get to the scale of several hundreds of millions or even billions of people in the metaverse, just because things take some time to get there.
"So that’s the North Star. I think we will get there. But, you know, the other services that we run are at a somewhat larger scale already today."
