The King holds farewell audiences

On Thursday 11 June, farewell audiences were held at the Royal Palace of Stockholm for ambassadors Kirsten Malling Biering from Denmark, Gunnar Gunnarsson from Iceland, Mandisa Dona Marasha from South Africa and Ibrahim Alibrahim from Saudi Arabia.

Just as an ambassador is received by The King on assuming his or her position in Sweden at a formal audience, a similar – albeit somewhat less formal – meeting is also held when the ambassador returns home again.
