It was the adorable royal moment that was one of the highlights of the Queen’s 70th anniversary.

And now Mike Tindall has revealed what happened behind the scenes at the royal box for the star-studded music festival.
In his podcast The Good, The Bad and The Rugby, Tindall shared how Louis was full of energy when his parents tried to seat him for the three-hour concert with his siblings and cousins.
“The concert was very, very cool,” Tindall said.
“Louis, he just wanted to have fun and my two are always naughty so it was just trying to keep a lid on things.”
Tindall said lollipops could be held responsible for making the kids even more energetic in the royal box, leaving parents to deal with the aftermath.
“However, there were a lot of candies in the backyard, so they had full sugar levels,” he said.
“It’s hard for them, they’re all young, they’re sitting there from 2 to 5 p.m. it’s a long time, so as parents you just do what you have to do.”
Tindall also revealed that the royals also had a “cousin lunch” before the anniversary celebrations started, which was one of his highlights of the weekend.
It’s unclear if that included Harry and Meghan as well as William and Kate, who were not seen together in public for the entire duration of the festivities.
Footage from the concert shows Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis and their cousins fighting over a bag of candy.
Louis was also seen sticking his tongue out at his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, sitting on his grandfather Prince Charles’ lap.
The screen, in full view of the television cameras filming the event, drew a mixed reaction from viewers, with some calling it Kate’s most recognizable parenting moment.
However, some royal guards criticized Prince William and the Duchess’s education methods.
“At what point do we go from ‘Wow, what a recognizable toddler moment’ to ‘Wow, you can’t control your kids?’ Because that video is (cringe emoji),” wrote one internet user.
Others thought his behavior had “gone out of control” and another, Miminet, wrote: “A 4-year-old can understand right and wrong behavior and most know how to behave appropriately towards an adult figure like their Mother. Covering her mouth and making faces at her as she tries to speak? How can he learn such a thing.”
