Speaking of his talents as a father, his loyalty as a partner and a cheeky mention of how good he looks in lycra, Princess Mary had a lot of lovely things to say about her husband of 14 years.
“I am so happy that you swept me off my feet and that we dared to fall for each not just for a moment but for life,” she said.
“Life with you is never boring.”
Mary, who is now fluent in Danish, also explained how the couple had made many sacrifices to be together.
"You invited me into your world and the world of the Danes, after we had only known each other for a short time. And there were, indeed, many unsure steps when we started our common journey, side by side and separated at one and the same time," she said.
"It takes courage to dare, but without daring, we lose what could have been."
Mary described how marrying into the Danish royal family was a daunting experience for a young woman moving from Australia.
