On Friday 13 April, The King held an audience with Prime Minster Stefan Löfven at the Royal Palace of Stockholm. The King meets the Prime Minister regularly to find out about current issues.

According to the Constitution Act of 1974, the Prime Minister is responsible for ensuring that the Head of State is kept informed about matters concerning the nation.

Regular Councils of State are held at the Royal Palace, attended by The King, The Crown Princess, the Prime Minister and ministers.

The audience was the first individual meeting between The King and the Prime Minister since the Government took up its duties in January 2019. These meetings will be held regularly in future.
