Prince Frederik and Princess Mary celebrate their 16th wedding anniversary today.

I leave here two videos of two important moments of the wedding.

In the 12th Century, the marauding Vikings were driven out of Scotland after much savage fighting by a band of men led by the grandfather of the first Donald the founder of the Clan MacDonald. He would have wondered why he went so much trouble when, some 8 centuries later, we take account of today's union between the Viking Frederik and Mary of the MacDonald Clan.

For almost 4 years, my wife, Susan, and I, have watched the relationship grow to full bloom, culminating in this magnificent occasion.

Mary made a reluctant entry into the world but ever since she has eagerly embraced its offerings. Growing up under the combined influences of her mother, Henrietta, and her grandmother Mary, she has grasped every opportunity to broaden her horizons and has developed into a wonderful woman with many fine attributes. Memories abound of the bonding between Mary and her mother, the daily tours on the backseat of a bicycle around Clear Lake City when we lived in Texas, the many early, very early, car journeys down to her first loves of her life, her horses in Tasmania and the myriad communications when she moved after her graduation from the University of Tasmania to Melbourne. Henrietta would have been so happy for Mary on this her special day.

Min datter er meget smuk, tres belle, not only, as is obvious, in appearance but in many other ways including how she cares for her family and friends and the manner in which she is approaching the exciting and exacting task that lie ahead. I am the proud father of a very loving daughter.

Although fathers these days have little say in such matters, It is with great pleasure and confidence that I entrust her to the care of Frederik, an intelligent, sporting, debonair, delightful young man - what more could a father-in law ask? To Frederik, velkommen to our family. I offer a verse for your reflection from the Scottish National bard, Robert Burns.

'To make a happy fireside clime
to little ones and wife
that is the true pathos and sublime
of human life.'

Your Majesties, your Royal Highnesses, friends, please join with me in a toast to the Bride and Groom wishing them a long and happy life together.
It should read “To make a happy fireside Quine”. This is a Scottish word for Girl,

Interesting.

The word Quine - resembles the Danish work "kvinde" which means woman.
Bairn I believe is also Scottish? The word for child in Danish is "barn".
Kirk is a common place-name and also means church, right? - In Danish: "Kirke."

There must have been lots of contact across the North Sea over the centuries.

You are correct. A number of Danish words resemble and sound like real Scottish words or expressions.
I am enjoying reading back reports of events some with amusement!

. Had no idea that they lived in Texas (Clear Lake) for sometime when her mother was still alive (and Mary was at an age that she would be seated at the back of her mother's bike).

Hello! Would anyone have the English translation of CP Frederik’s wedding speech. There is a YT video but the English translation is behind the Danish close caption. Thank you.

Oh my heart!
This brings to mind what CP Mary said in the engagement press conference something about how from the beginning ( and I am paraphrasing here ) how the words they exchange in their letters/emails to each other played a part in making their relationship grow. I mean after reading CP Frederik’s speech ( and also CP Mary’s at the 50th bday dinner ) I can only imagine what they wrote to each other ).

Thank you so much @Curryong! BTW, is there also a thread for non-wedding speeches - like CP Mary’s speech for CP Frederik’s 50th bday?. I will never get tired of watching the YT video of that one and now I will not get tired of reading CP Fred’s speech over and over again either.

I don’t know of a speeches thread for birthdays/wedding anniversaries etc on TRF. I’m sure CPss Mary’s speech to Frederik was discussed at the time on their threads in the Danish Royals section here, as most occasions are. It might mean some trawling through posts though.

Here is Hello’s take on Mary’s speech in English.

Thank you again curryong. I am quite new to this forum and not yet very familiar on how to navigate it. May I ask you how do I subscribe to a thread?

Hi Everyone.

Found this on YT on what seems to be the official YT channel of the DRF. Is there really an official DRF YT channel? And are there other parts to this video?

I don’t know if I copied the link correctly but in case I did not the title is : Dokumentarfilm on H.K. H Konprinsen and it is on the Det danske Kongehus YT channel posted 3 yrs ago

https://youtu.be/aSthqFHvTrc

Thank you.
