Diplomatic reception at the Royal Palace of Stockholm

On Friday 8 September, a diplomatic reception was held at the Royal Palace of Stockholm.

A few times a year, newly-appointed ambassadors and their spouses are given the opportunity to meet The King and The Queen during a reception at the Royal Palace of Stockholm. The Crown Princess and Prince Daniel also took part in Friday's diplomatic reception.

The first time newly-appointed ambassadors meet The King is when they submit their credentials at a formal audience. At the diplomatic reception, they also have the chance to meet The Queen and other ambassadors, as well as representatives from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.

The reception was attended by ambassadors and their spouses from Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, Norway, Mongolia, Italy and Spain.
