Mike Tindall has shared the reason behind Prince Louis’s adorable Jubilee antics which won the hearts of the world last weekend.
The four-year-old was pictured and filmed throughout the four-day event making funny faces and waving enthusiastically.
Tindall, who is married to the Duke of Cambridge’s cousin Zara Phillips, the daughter of Anne, Princess Royal, had actually eaten lots of sweets and had ‘complete sugar highs’.
Reflecting on the Platinum Jubilee weekend on his podcast The Good, The Bad and The Rugby, the former Ruggy player said: “Louis, he was just wanting to have fun, and my two [daughters] are always mischievous, so it was trying to keep a lid on.”
Tindall is father to daughters Mia, eight, Lena, three and a one-year-old son named Lucas.
He added: “There was a lot of sweets out back though, so they had complete sugar highs. It’s tough for them. They’re all young, so asking them to sit, because it was two til five or whatever, it’s a long time.
“As any parent knows you just do whatever needs to be done.”
Prince Louis was accompanied in the Royal Box on the Mall with his elder siblings Prince George, eight, and Princess Charlotte, seven and his parents Kate Middleton and Prince William.
Jubilee viewers first noticed Louis’s antics during the Trooping the Colour ceremony on Thursday (2 June) when Prince Louis hilariously covered his ears as planes flew overhead.
Then, at the Jubilee Pageant, he told his mum, the Duchess of Cambridge, to be quiet before sticking his tongue out at her.
The youngest of the Cambridges had to be watched over with a close eye when he grew impatient over the event, and could even be seen covering his mum's mouth at one point.
They Cambridges tweeted about the weekend’s events, writing: "What a fantastic weekend of celebrations.
"Seeing people across the nation coming together with family, friends and loved ones has been extremely special.
“Thank you to everyone who turned out to show their gratitude to The Queen and her inspiring 70 years of leadership. From the crowds on the Mall to communities hosting street parties up and down the country, we hope you had a weekend to remember."
The Cambridges also addressed how much their son enjoyed the Jubilee, writing: "We all had an incredible time, especially Louis... "
We love this.
