The foreign ambassadors arrive at the Palace

Foreign ambassadors coming to Sweden as a new ambassador for their country have to present their credentials to The King in order to be able to function as ambassador in Sweden.

This occurs at a formal audience at the Royal Palace in Stockholm approximately once a month usually with four new ambassadors per occasion.
 
The ambassadors are transported from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs to the Royal Palace in former King Karl XV's parade coupe drawn by four horses. Outriders lead the procession, followed by the coupe and its attendants.
