Behind the little prince – who arrived alongside his sister Princess Charlotte, seven, brother Prince George, eight, and father Prince William, 39 – sat Mike Tindall who at one point, entertained the boy with funny faces to keep him amused.
The former England rugby player, sitting in the row behind, gestured and pointed to his eyes that he was keeping watch over him, as Kate chuckled at their interaction.
The prince had delighted royal fans by stealing the show on the balcony on Thursday after Trooping the Colour.
He let out a howl and covered his ears during the flypast, and his ‘Gan Gan’ the Queen sweetly interacted with her great-grandson, leaning down to chat to him and point out the planes.
Others in the royal box included Princess Eugenie, who bounced her baby son August on her lap. The one-year-old was wearing a jumper with a Union flag on the front.
Immediately to his left, the prince’s two elder siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte sat near their father and cut stately figures as they watched the proceedings.
As Prince George stood for part of the parade, he mirrored his father William, both adjusting the front of their jackets at the same time.

Meanwhile the caption hinted at the fun they’d had as a family over the weekend, reading: ‘We all had an incredible time, especially Louis…’.
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.

One attendee, Sandra Duggan, said it was a ‘lovely surprise’ to see William and Kate at St Helen’s Church Jubilee Big Lunch in north Kensington.
Another said it was ‘the perfect Royal ending to the Platinum Jubilee Weekend’, adding he felt ‘incredibly honoured’ to meet the Cambridges.
‘As a new British Citizen they spent such lovely and welcoming words and we will treasure this moment forever,’ he added.

The new snaps were revealed as a royal expert said The Queen was ‘sending a clear message about the future of the monarchy’ by making a balcony appearance at Buckingham Palace alongside Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George last night
The 96-year-old monarch was absent for much of the extended Bank Holiday weekend, after finding the first day enjoyable but tiring, and in a message of thanks acknowledged this but said her ‘heart’ had been with well-wishers.
The Duchess of Cornwall, patron of the Big Lunch, estimated that up to 18 million people could have taken part in Jubilee street parties, and the Queen expressed her hope this ‘renewed sense of togetherness’ would be felt for years to come.
After the outpouring of public affection during her balcony appearance, the Queen said she was ‘humbled and deeply touched’ so many people had taken part in celebrations marking her 70-year reign.
Surrounded by her family, including Prince Charles, Camilla, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, George, Charlotte and Louis, she was cheered by thousands of well-wishers after stepping on to the balcony following the Platinum Pageant, which told the story of her life, and the nation, with an eccentric, fun and imaginative carnival-like display.
Royal expert Phil Dampier revealed the appearance of the children was ‘very significant’.
He explained it showed ‘an image of a loving extended family’, telling FEMAIL: ‘The fact that the three children were standing on the balcony at the end with the Queen sent out a clear message that they are the future and that there are three kings in waiting.’
Meanwhile he revealed: ‘The appearances of George Charlotte and Louis were clearly very significant and marked their debut on the public stage.
‘George and Charlotte had their first royal walkabout in Cardiff and it will be the first of many!
‘Prince Charles once said that the day he realised he would one day be king and that his destiny was mapped out for him was a tremendous shock, and I often wonder whether it’s dawned on George yet.
‘He seems quite shy but he’s going to have to get used to it so introducing them at a national event where the focus isn’t just on them was a good idea to slowly introduce them to royal duties.’
He continued: ‘All the other children were very much family members enjoying a special occasion.
‘It was wonderful to see them and the children of both Peter and Zara Phillips are tremendous characters. They were clearly enjoying every moment of it and why not?’
‘The Queen is their great grandmother as well as their monarch and they were supporting her celebrations.’
He added that the appearances ‘certainly help to promote an image of an extended loving family, and the Queen dotes on them all.’
Phil continued: ‘Her grandchildren and great grandchildren span an age range of more than 40 years which is incredible.
‘And at last she was able to meet Harry and Meghan’s daughter Lilibet, who was named after her.
‘As usual the Californian couple didn’t want the public to see their children and scuttled off on a private jet.
‘But they were a sideshow and most importantly the Queen was able to enjoy the four days and the royal kids played a massive role in the proceedings.’
