The Queen surprised her husband by making a short speech fraught with warmth and love, and ended with the following verse in English:

Count the garden by the flowers
never by the leaves that fall.
Count the days by golden hours
don't remember clouds at all.
Count your nights by stars, not shadows.
Count your life with smiles, not tears.
And with joy on every birthday
Count your age by friends, not years.
