Princess Marie of Denmark paid tribute to her husband Prince Joachim in a recent interview, calling him her "soulmate".

Speaking to Costume magazine, the France-born princess spoke candidly about her family life, saying that her husband of six years makes her laugh all the time and that they are still as in love as the day they met.

Describing her day-to-day life, Marie, who took the title of the Countess of Monpezat upon her marriage to Joachim, said that the first thing she does in the morning is kiss her children.

According to 38-year-old Marie, all she needs to do is go out without any make-up on, dressed casually and wearing her hair down to go unnoticed by the public.
