The King holds formal audiences
On 25 May, 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 always 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 Gil Rossell Duchamps from Andorra
- Ambassador Marlene Mizzi from Malta
- Ambassador Sylvia Naa Adaawa Annoh from Ghana
- Ambassador Muhib Mahmoud Nimrat from Jordan
During the audience with Jordan's ambassador, The King wore the Royal Jordanian Order of Al-Hussein bin Ali with Chain.
