Mike Tindall has explained the reason for Prince Louis’ behaviour over the Queen’s jubilee celebrations after the toddler hilariously went viral for his antics.
The ex-England rugby player, who is married to Prince William’s cousin, Zara Phillips, said the four-year-old was hyper because he had a ‘sugar high’ from eating ‘so many sweets’.
Speaking on his podcast The Good, The Bad and The Rugby, he 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.

The 43-year-old continued: “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 until five or whatever, it’s a long time.
“As any parent knows you just do whatever needs to be done.”
Viewers of the celebrations were delighted to see the youngest of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s three children’s mischievous ways.
At one point, he could be seen sticking his tongue out at his mum before telling her to be quiet. He then got up from his seat to sit on his grandfather Prince Charles’ lap.
The Royal couple also took to Twitter and give a special shoutout to their son when speaking about the momentous celebrations over the weekend.
They wrote: “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.”
After this, they added: “We all had an incredible time, especially Louis.”
