On Thursday 29 August, farewell audiences were held at the Royal Palace.

The ambassadors who are now leaving Sweden are:

  • Australia's ambassador Jonathan Kenna
  • Panama's ambassador Jaime Ortega Cuclón

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.
