Yes Muhler, always enjoy your history telling. From the interior pics that I have seen of the Dannebrog she needs an upgrade of furnishings to bring her into line with 2011 tastes. Obviously the discussion of money may inhibit this. But I would like to see an upgrade for this beautiful ship. All my friends love the pics of the Dannebrog as a private yacht. But she does do a lot of entertaining - of and for Danes and an upgrade would be appropiate. These yachts from the 1930's are graceful looking and I am delighted that yours has been looked after so well over the years.

The pictures of the babies are indeed very sweet.
Vincent and Josephine have such cute 'chubby chops' and watchful, alert eyes.
They seem to be taking in the view of the crowd.

I love the photo of the twins spying each other whilst wearing their matching woolley hooded jackets.
What a delightful two-some to come home to each night.

I bet their older brother and sister are looking forward to their return.

You are welcome Tarita, Emmily & Juliette.

Perhaps. She'll probably need a major overhaul within the next twenty years or so. But I think any refurnishing will have to wait until QMII has left the bridge, it's after all very much her ship.
It could be interesting to see what M&F would do with Dannebrog's interiour in regards to a mixture of traditional and modern furnishing and decoration. - It certainly worked with their new home.

Thanks, Iceflower
Interesting!
It's very unusual for Mary to be accompanied on the job by an adjutant.
It's also a very "correct and official" way to do things.
So far we are used to seeing her LiW hovering in the background. I wonder if we from now on will get used to seeing an adjutant as well? Perhaps in particular in connection with official visits like this, where all flags are flying.

As far as I could tell, neither Frederik nor Mary were accompanied by Dannebrog's captain in his capacity as an adjutant. Being the Monarch's personal captain, the captain also outranks all other adjutants. - But I guess there should still be a difference between M&F and the Regent Couple after all, eh? - Well, I'm pleased to say I was proven wrong. Look a couple of post further ahead.

I think the babies must have had a rough night as Fredrik looks a little disheveled
I just wander does any one have any vague guess what this must cost? I think its wonderful for the Danes to see their Royals like this, but like I said before, it must take some work and money to pull this off!!!

Great photos again of day two. Thanks to those who posted.
Vincent and Josephine looks so very cute in their hooded jackets, and seem to be very contented and happy babies, they have lovely bright eyes. Mary and Frederik are extremly proud parents.
These tours are very popular, judging by the number of people that come to greet them.
Mary certainly loves animals she always finds one to connect with no matter where she is.

As you pointed out yourself such a visit means a lot for the locals as you can tell from the turnout. It's extremely difficult to put a specific amount on the value of such a visit, which is essentially a celebration of a town with the pr focus that entails.

I can't put an amount of the cost of the ship and crew either, because I haven't got the info.
The ship is crewed mainly by conscripts, who in this way get some practical sailing experience. And serving onboard Dannebrog give extra credits should they ever join the navy as professionels or enter another part of the maritime business.
The alternative is that they either don't serve onboard a ship, while being conscripts or that they serve onboard a warship in Danish waters where nothing will happen. Because the ships send out on international missions are manned exclusively by professionals and the crews serving in the North Atlantic and around Greenland needs to be of a very high quality as well. It is for real up there!
While serving onboard Dannebrog they do something useful and that is more cost beneficial than sailing onboard a patrolling warship near to home. - The Navy Home Guard can do that just as well, better in fact and cheaper.
Another matter is accommodation. It's not just M&F who sleep onboard Dannebrog, it's also their staff and PET officers.
The alternative is either to fly or drive M&F and their staff every morning from Copenhagen to Northern Jutland and back again late in the evening. That aint cheap either.
Or to house them in a local hotel and drive and fly them to a new town every morning and back in the evening. Again, not the cheapest option. - And that also require 24 hour police protection.
Dannebrog also enables the DRF to be on stage for twelve hours, because from 22.00 in the evening when the ship sails, they can go a few steps, put their feet up and go: "Phew, home and alone at last". Otherwise they wouldn't be home in Copenhagen before around midnight at the earliest.
And they know that until 10.00 the next day they are at home and alone if they want to. I'm sure that means a lot mentally.

Danneborg herself is stylish and anyone who has ever seen her entering a harbour with members of the DRF onboard knows how huge a crowd pleaser she is. It cannot be compared to the DRF arriving in Rolls Royce or a helicopter.
Royalty is after all very much about showmanship.
More than anything else Dannebrog stirs a feeling of pride, a sense of belonging, a sense of history and even a sense of patriotism, even though that's a very strong word.
You can be a hardcore republican and still feel delight in watching Dannebrog, because it's beautiful spectacle.

It's very difficult to a price tag on something like that, something that is basically about emotions.

It would be nice if she sailed to Australia sometime. But that's a long journey for an old ship.

Who knows? Perhaps when Frederik has become king. It wouldn't be such a big deal cost wise, because the pr-value would be very big. Especially if it was turned into an entire tour with Dannebrog visiting say, Australia, Vietnam, China, Japan and so on.
We can hope and dream.

Thank you, Rubies, I blush.
