During the final day of the Platinum Jubilee weekend, Prince Louis could be seen fidgeting in his seat, pulling faces, sticking his tongue out and generally getting up to some mischievous antics as he sat next to mum, Kate Middleton. In order to keep the young prince in check, the Duchess of Cambridge pulled out every parenting distraction technique.
Like any other mother with a four-year-old Kate was kept firmly on her toes as she tried to get her son to sit still and behave himself. The youngster was seated in the Royal box between the Duchess and his older sister, Princess Charlotte, and could be seen turning around at some points to play with his cousin Mia Tindall, reports The Mirror.

As previously reported by Hello!, Kate could be seen speaking calmly with her little boy, keeping him entertained and pointing out what was going on in the pageant procession. At one point, Kate gently alerted Louis to the Teletubbies float about to pass them by, a part of the procession that appeared to particularly fascinate him.
Having previously been turned around in his seat to face Mia, the young prince sat back properly in his seat to watch the characters approach. The Cambridges made a joke about Louis and his liveliness in an Instagram post reflecting on the historic weekend.
The caption read: “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.”
Referring to little Louis, William and Kate ended their personal message with: “We all had an incredible time, especially Louis… [eyes emoji]. W & C.”
Royal fans were delighted by this reference to “adorable” Louis, whose cheekiness some feel “made the celebrations even more enjoyable.”
One person wrote: “Fantastic time and brilliant to see the children, Louis being natural was a joy!”
Another said: “Thank you for including him, and allowing him to be a child! You’re doing a wonderful job as parents!”
