Prince Louis was on a sugar high during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, Mike Tindall has revealed.

The four-year-old son of Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge stole the show during the bank holiday celebrations to commemorate the Queen’s 70 years of reign.

On Thursday, Louis was seen covering his ears during Trooping the Colour on the Buckingham Palace balcony.

While on Sunday during the pageant, the playful Louis was up to mischief again– but Tindall joked he was keeping an eye on the spirited four-year-old.

Louis sat in the front row of the royal box with his parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

He covered his eyes and blew out his cheeks as he watched the colourful pageant on the Mall.

But former England rugby player Tindall, sitting in the row behind, gestured and pointed to his eyes that he was keeping watch over him, as Kate chuckled at their interaction.

Speaking about the encounter and Louis’ actions over the bank holiday weekend, Tindall said the young prince was “just wanting to have fun”.

Speaking on The Good, The Bad and the The Rugby, he said: "And my two are always mischievous, so it was just trying to keep a lid on it.

“There were a lot of sweets out back though, so they had complete sugar highs.

"It was tough for them, they’re all young, asking them to sit in there from two until five is a long time.

“As any parent knows, you just do whatever needs to be done.”
