On Thursday 17 September, The King held an audience with the Prime Minister at the Royal Palace.

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. This mainly takes place at Councils of State, in which The King, The Crown Princess, the Prime Minister and ministers participate.
