Zara Tindall’s husband, Mike Tindall, addressed his nephew Prince Louis’ antics during Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee last weekend.
The youngest Cambridge went viral this week for his silly moments during Sunday’s Platinum Jubilee Pageant. Prince Louis, 4, was seen putting his hand over his mom Kate Middleton’s mouth, making a series of faces, sticking out his tongue and putting his thumb to his nose while wiggling his remaining fingers as the duchess attempted to contain him.
On Tuesday’s episode of his “The Good, the Bad & the Rugby” podcast, Mike explained that access to “a lot of sweets” gave Prince Louis a “complete sugar high” that day.
The former rugby player, 43, his wife Zara, 41, and their daughters Mia, 8, and Lena, 3, were seated behind the Cambridges. According to him, even his children were acting “mischievous” during the pageant.
“It’s tough for them,” Mike, who also shares 1-year-old son Lucas with Zara, was quoted as saying by Page Six. “They’re all young. It’s a long time.”
“But as any parents know, you just do whatever needs to be done,” he continued. “It’s trying to keep a lid on.”
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s youngest child made headlines for many of his antics while helping celebrate the Queen’s historic 70 years on the throne.
Prince Louis was photographed fighting with his cousin Lena over candy Sunday, Page Six reported.
The 3-year-old held a bag of sweets out to Prince Louis’ older sister Princess Charlotte, 7, moving the treats when Peter Phillips’ daughter Savannah, 11, reached out. She did the same when Prince Louis attempted to grab the bag.
Prince Louis continued to make unsuccessful attempts to get a piece of candy. Lena eventually gave Charlotte and Savannah candy and even stood up and walked to Prince George’s seat to hand out a piece to the 8-year-old.
Savannah was seen giggling with a hand over her mouth when Prince Louis asked for sweets again. However, Lena refused with a stern expression.
Prince Louis also left his seat next to his mother at one point during the pageant to go and sit on Prince Charles’ lap. The little royal was filmed laughing as his 73-year-old grandfather moved his legs to the beat of the music.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge seemingly poked fun at Prince Louis’ Platinum Jubilee antics when they released a statement after the four-day festivities.
“We all had an incredible time, especially Louis…,” Prince William and Middleton wrote on Twitter, adding eyes emoji.
