A full transcript of Amal Clooney's discourse is underneath, trailed by video from inside the occasion.

"Here are a couple of things you may not think about George. To begin with, he is a refined man. He is a honorable man in each feeling of the word and in a way that appears to be so uncommon nowadays and maybe even obsolete. Everybody who knows him, even the individuals who contradict him politically or who have squabbled with him professionally, will let you know, he has not overlooked his Kentucky behavior.

On each set I visit, I'm told by the group that George sticks up for the most helpless. His security group disclosed to me that when shooting [Confessions of a Dangerous Mind] in Montreal, George declined to wear a warm winter coat unless each on-screen character got a similar one despite the fact that it was 40 degrees underneath zero.

Presently it's valid that George's tricks, that we have caught wind of today around evening time, are an exemption to his courteous comportment. As Matt Damon discovered when regardless of his thorough exercises his pants continued getting littler, and more tightly and more tightly every time he showed up on George's set.

However, other than that, George is unquestionably a honorable man.

The second thing is that George is unbelievably liberal. He is liberal with his chance. He gets some answers concerning individuals who have endured a similar medical problems as him and he writes to give them guidance. He enables youngsters to seek after their enthusiasm for film. He'll visit an elderly woman at our nearby nursing home as he supposes it will fill her heart with joy. He has a major heart and he places it into all that he does, regardless of whether its making motion pictures, facilitating a pledge drive or regularly as frequently happens nowadays tricking our most recent visitor by utilizing a nappy and a pot of Nutella. Yet, George is liberal in customary routes as well, by giving cash to causes he puts stock in and ruining friends and family. He should most likely be the main individual on the planet to welcome his 13 dearest companions to supper one night and give them a bag loaded with $1 million in real money. Be that as it may, it must be stated, the fourteenth dearest companion is as yet vexed about it.

Third, George starts great ruckuses. Indeed, even before I knew him, I respected George's pledge to taking up causes like uncovering debasement in Sudan. Furthermore, to taking good positions like restricting the War in Iraq when it was a long way from prevalent to do as such. As of late he worked with survivors of the Parkland school shooting on the battle for weapon control and he keeps on tutoring some of them today. He was even the UN's delivery person of peace, yet actually he battles for what is great lifestyle. George demonstrates to all of us what it is to have an ethical still, small voice and how effective it can be when joined with persuasiveness and strength. This part of George's character was noted numerous years back by Walter Cronkite, the renowned newsman, who composed George a letter that I found in our home. Here's the manner by which it starts:

"Dear George, throughout my checkered vocation I have experienced a reasonable number of motion picture stars. The greater part of them utilized their energy gravely, for the most part to prop up a fragile sense of self. Some of them had style, relatively few had character, not very many of them had any genuine class. You have character and you have class. You additionally have a completely honorable neurotic valor, jumping off the high board without knowing whether there's any water in the pool.

Walter was correct and his words are all the more powerful when a large number of us feel that character is deficient in a portion of the pioneers we rely on most."

Despite the fact that George unassumingly characteristics a significant part of the achievement we are celebrating here today around evening time to good fortune, I believe it's staggering ability and character that got him here. What's more, these traits likewise make him a stunning spouse and father. I met George when I was 35 and beginning to wind up very surrendered to the possibility that I would have been an old maid. At that point we met and began hanging out in my London level and soon it felt like, regardless of what happened, I could never need to be with any other individual.

I couldn't rest when we were separated and I'm informed that I would show a specific smile and head-tilt when perusing his instant messages or the letters he would stow away in my pack. After five years, none of that has changed. He is the individual who has my entire esteem and furthermore the individual whose grin influences me to dissolve unfailingly. My adoration, what I have found with you is the colossal love I generally trusted existed. What's more, seeing you with our youngsters, Ella and Alexander, is the best satisfaction in my life.

You fill our home with giggling and joy and that is even before the youngsters have worked out that 'da-da' is really Batman, a talking fox, and companions with Mary Poppins. I'm so pleased with you, my adoration. Congrats on this significant privilege that you're getting today around evening time. I'm pleased with you, however I additionally realize that when our kids discover what you have done, as well as your identity, they will be so glad for you as well.
