On Wednesday 12 February, 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 at a reception at the Royal Palace of Stockholm.

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.

This reception took place in Princess Sibylla's Apartments at the Royal Palace of Stockholm, and was attended by ambassadors and their spouses from Kosovo, Kina, Namibia, Japan and Ethiopia.
