The King holds formal audiences
On 5 April, The King received four new ambassadors during formal audiences at the Royal Palace.
It is accepted international practice that a new ambassador in a country is given the opportunity to meet the head of state, although the ceremonies vary in different countries. In Sweden, the reception of a foreign envoy follows a traditional ceremony, and is quite unique with its centuries old traditions.
The foreign envoys received by The King during the formal audiences were:
- Ambassador Christina Beinhoff from Germany
- Ambassador Federico Perazza from Uruguay
- Ambassador Rula A.J. Almhaissen from Palestine
- Ambassador Maria Luisa Escorel de Moraes from Brazil
