Denmark's Prince Joachim says he wouldn't have planned to marry again if his young sons hadn't approved.
Joachim said: "My two sons Nicolai and Felix mean the world to me. I will not let anything come in between us."
Prince Nicolai, seven, and five-year-old Felix are the prince's children with Hong Kong-born Countess Alexandra Manley.
Joachim revealed his "sensitive" sons took a while to get used to the new woman in their father's life, but he added to Denmark's TV2: "I have told them step by step about Marie. Fortunately Nicolai and Felix are happy with Marie and she is happy with them".
Countess Alexandra remarried last year, to Martin Jorgensen.
