Mike Tindall is shedding some insight on Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Tindall, who is married to the Queen’s granddaughter Zara, recently appeared on "The Good, The Bad and The Rugby" podcast, where he shared that the Royal children had a "real sugar high" during the last event of Queen Elizabeth’s Jubilee on Sunday.

Tindall shared a first-hand account of the celebrations to the host Alex Payne and touched on Prince Louis’ viral moment during the pageant.

"It's tough for them. They're all young. It's a long time," Tindall shared. "But as any parents know, you just do whatever needs to be done."

QUEEN ELIZABETH THROUGH THE YEARS

"Louis, he was just wanting to have fun. And my two [daughters, Mia and Lena] are always mischievous, so it's trying to keep a lid on. There were a lot of sweets out back though, so there was a real sugar high," he added.

Prince Louis, 4, quickly stole the show during the pageant ceremony when he was seen making funny faces at his mom, Kate Middleton.

Throughout the event, the young prince was seen bouncing from his mom’s lap to his father’s, Prince William and even his grandfather’s, Prince Charles.

Queen Elizabeth’s great-granddaughter, Lena Tindall, caused quite a stir when she handed sweet treats to Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 7. Louis was seen reaching for some of his own during the festivities.

"Who knew that wearing your Mrs.' hats would actually be a thing?" Tindall said.

Mike and Zara married in 2011, shortly after Middleton and William’s royal wedding. They share three children: Mia, 8, Lena, 3, and Lucas, 1.
