This is the hilarious moment the Queen’s great-granddaughter refuses to share sweets with Prince Louis.
Zara and Mike Tindall’s second daughter, Lena Tindall, turns four today but had viewers in the lurch when she slapped cheeky Prince Louis’ hand away as he tried to grab her packet of MAOAM sweets.
Lena then walks away from the prince while scowling at him while her cousins Savannah Phillips and Kate Middleton share a joke about the situation.
Lena, one of Her Majesty’s 12 great-grandchildren, appears to be condemning Louis, who stole the show with his face-contorting antics during the anniversary.
Lena’s dad, former England rugby player Mike, revealed all the kids were on sugar high because there was so much sweets being passed around.
On the podcast The Good, The Bad and The Rugby, he told co-hosts James Haskell and Alex Payne: “Louis just wanted to have fun.
“And my two are always mischievous so I was just trying to keep it under wraps.
“But there was a lot of candy back there, so they were totally high on sugar.”
One Twitter user said: “Everyone is talking about Louis but has anyone seen Lena?
“She was in the best of moods, especially when she showed up with snacks. Louis wanted some, but she had priorities.
“At one point it’s clear that she’s like, ‘No, Louis!’ And she gives him a look. Savannah’s reaction says it all.”
Mike added: “It’s been tough for them, they’re all young, asking them to sit there from two to five is a long time.
“As any parent knows, you just do what needs to be done.”
On the day, Prince Louis was seen sticking his own nose up with his thumb and wandering over during the show to sit on Prince Charles’ lap after becoming restless.
The young prince, aged four, was also spotted dancing in his seat before pausing to eat a chocolate chip cookie.
Meanwhile, his older siblings, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, were seen watching their younger brother in amusement as they sat in the royal box to watch the pageant.
Mia Tindall was seen at one point in the concert on her father Mike’s lap before seeking a hug from Kate Middleton, while Lena Tindall sat on her cousin Savannah Phillips’ lap.
Princess Eugenie was seen hopping her baby son August on her lap. The one-year-old wore a sweater with the Union flag embroidered on the front
Mike said the four-day celebration was a “lovely weekend,” adding, “It was brilliant to be fair, it was just great to be a part of.”
Lena Elizabeth Tindall was born at Stroud Maternity Hospital on June 18, 2018 and is 23rd in line to the throne.
She was the fourth grandchild of Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips, and the seventh great-grandchild and fifth great-granddaughter of the Queen and the late Duke of Edinburgh.
She is Zara and Mike Tindall’s second child after big sister Mia, who was born on January 17, 2014.
She also has a younger brother, Lucas, who completed the trio on March 21, 2021. Before Lena was born, the couple experienced two miscarriages.
Zara told the Sunday Times: “For me, the worst part was that we had to tell everyone – everyone knew.
“I had to get through the baby because it was so far. I then had another miscarriage very early.
“You have to go through a period of not talking about it because it’s too raw, but like anything, time is a great healer.”
Lena’s name was a unique choice for the royal family, but it’s loosely linked to another royal family, Princess Helena, Queen Victoria’s fifth child.
Like many family members, her middle name pays homage to her great-grandmother, The Queen.
Living an incredibly private life, the young queen is yet to make her debut on the balcony of Buckingham Palace – unlike her cousins, who have appeared there on several occasions for events such as Trooping the Colour.
Lena is often seen at her grandmother’s estate at Gatcombe in Minchinhampton, Gloucestershire.

The young queen usually plays with her cousins Savannah and Isla at events such as the Horse Trials or the Festival of British Eventing.
However, earlier this month she was a regular performer in London for Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
One of the moments that got royal fans talking the most was when she showed up with a handful of candy, but refused to share it with Prince Louis until everyone else had theirs.
