‘Just wanting to have fun’ Prince Louis ‘on a real sugar high’ as he pulled faces at Kate


The youngest Cambridge prince, who turned four earlier this year, caught the world’s attention with his comical facial expressions and mischievous antics during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations over the weekend. During the closing event of the weekend, the Platinum Jubilee Pageant, he was joined by his brother and sister, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, along with their parents, William and Kate.

But Prince Louis drew all attention to his position in the royal box as he was spotted putting his hand over the Duchess of Cambridge’s mouth and upturning his own nose with his thumb at points in the parade.

He placed his hands over his eyes, seemingly exhausted with the length of the three-kilometre-long parade as he yawned from his chair.

He then perched on Prince William’s knee, stood up on his own seat, and appeared to gesture to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who was sitting behind the young prince, with a confused expression.

But Prince Louis’s behaviour, on full display in one of his first royal outings, may have had more to do with sugar than the pure excitement of the bank holiday weekend, according to Mike Tindall.

Mr Tindall, who is married to the Queen’s granddaughter Zara, was sat just behind the Cambridge family during the parade with the couple’s two eldest children.

Speaking on his “The Good, The Bad and The Rugby” podcast, the former English rugby union player revealed that there had been a “sugar high” to contend with for the royal parents when trying to keep their children on their best behaviour.

Mr Tindall said: “Louis, he was just wanting to have fun.

“And my two are always mischievous so it’s trying to keep a lid on.

In one hilarious moment, Mr Tindall gestured to Louis to playfully warn him about his antics, watched by millions of people across the world.

Louis’ facial expressions took centre stage from the beginning of the Jubilee weekend, taking pride of place on the Buckingham Palace balcony.

Louis watched the RAF Red Arrows flypast along with his siblings, parents, and various other senior royals at the end of the Trooping the Colour parade.

Louis gestured towards the planes soaring overhead and clapped his hands over his ears, appearing to shout as the aircraft shot across central London.

He again pulled exaggerated funny faces, putting his fingers in his mouth and waving at pilots.
