DANNEBROG - A Royal Yacht turns 90
DANNEBROG the Royal Yacht is more than a ship. It is a castle afloat that carries the royal family to meet the Danes. When the Royal Yacht arrives in harbours on its annual travels in Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands, the Monarch meets her people, as local communities welcome the Majesty and introduce her to the local area. The Royal Yacht ties the entire realm together, and it frames the life of the Royal Family at sea.
