Niagara Falls turns purple (but actually it wasn't for Prince)

Niagara Falls turns purple for the Queen's birthday - and for Prince.

Lots of famous landmarks turned purple on Thursday night when Prince died.

Niagara Falls was one of them but awkwardly it was actually for the Queen's 90th birthday, not for the star known as the Purple One.

It was announced the famous waterfall would be turning purple - a colour associated with the Royals - earlier this week.

It confused a lot of people, including several American news anchors.

Organisers were quick to say that Niagara Falls, which straddles the US and Canada, would be turning purple for the Queen and for Prince.

Loads of other famous buildings turned purple in tribute to the music legend.
