Thanks Iceflower and Duke of M.
Let's have a look at some of the pictures.

Pic #2 in the above series: Behind Dannebrog is the flagpole with official Flag of the Realm. It's located at Holmen = the naval yard and HQ.
Being the official flag of the nation, it's raised and lowered each day with full honours. (We are pretty obsessed with our flag here in dK).
Pic #3. The officer standing next to M&F is the captain of Dannebrog. As such he is also QMII's personal adjutant, hence the cord.
Frederik is kommandør = commodore, the rank just beneath rear admiral.
The captain, as far as I can tell is kommandørkaptajn = commander.
Pic #4: The first Dannebrog. Beautiful isn't she? Well, in reality there were problems keeping her clean, she was coal fuelled. Alas, she isn't preserved, but the royal flagship before then is, the Frigate Jylland. Jylland is now on permanent display in a picturesque town called Ebeltoft.
Pic #10: At the beginning of each sailing season the crown is placed at bow spit. The conscripts here are wearing fatigue.
Pic #11: The conscript mates here wear the white parade summer uniform. That uniform is elsewhere only worn by permission by the commanding officer. But as Dannebrog is the royal yacht, it's basically their service uniform.
Pic #12: Notice the longhaired sailor. Frederik IX absolutely hated longhaired conscripts. In his mind real sailors didn't have long hair!
In fact I know someone who was a conscript in 1971, shortly before Frederik IX died. He and other privates who had had a recent haircut were selected to an honour guard because Frederik IX came visiting. - For the rest it was normal service...
Pic #18: The flag got entangled in the mast, so someone had to...
The venerable old lady has more than 400.000 nautical miles under her keel.
Pic #19: The conscripts are here wearing the normal blue dress uniform. So no royals around.
Pic #31: Dannebrog went through a major renovation in 1980.
