On Tuesday 29 April, farewell audiences were held at the Royal Palace of Stockholm for Chile's ambassador Horacio del Valle and Ukraine's ambassador Valerii Stepanov.

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.
