The King holds formal audiences
On 6 September, 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:
- Socialist Republic of Vietnam, Tran Van Tuan
- Republic of Angola, Cecília Caldeira da Conceição Rosário
- Ireland, Barbara Jones
- Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, Ram Swarth Ray
