On Monday 9 May, The King held an audience with the Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy, Peter Englund.
According to the Academy's regulations, The King must formally approve some of its decisions. This applies both to the election of new members and to the memorial sketch that King Gustaf III tasked the Academy with writing each year. It was in connection with the memorial sketch that Peter Englund visited The King today. Find out more about the Swedish Academy here.
