Still mourning the star's death from last week, many believe Prince had something to do with the unseasonable snowfall in London on Tuesday. After all, one of the late artist's best known songs was titled "Sometimes it snows in April."
The social world erupted as they watched the snow fly, taking the flakes as a sign from the music idol.
I don't know why everybody's so surprised about it snowing in April, Prince did warn us that it sometimes does that. #snow— Martin Maudsley (@harrumble) April 26, 2016
Other Londoners were just completely stunned to see the brief flurries of snow, stating "it's almost May" and there should be more sure signs of spring. Some even poked fun at the toll a bit of snow would take on travel and commute times since such a late wintry blast is so rare.

Forecasters say the wintry conditions will likely continue on Wednesday as temperatures hover around the freezing mark. In fact, parts of Britain could be even colder than Siberia with lows around -5C expected.
Thunder, lightning and sleet showers are expected to continue in some northern areas where heavy snowfall has been falling. That smashes hope for a sunny start to May this coming weekend.
