Sweden: Formal audiences at the Royal Palace of Stockholm

Sweden: Formal audiences at the Royal Palace of Stockholm

NordenBladet — On Friday 6 April, The King received four new foreign ambassadors during formal audiences at the Royal Palace of Stockholm.

The new ambassadors were Tanzania’s ambassador Willibrod Peter Slaa, Kyrgyzstan’s ambassador Bolot Isakovich Otunbaev, Mauritania’s ambassador Abdellahi Bah Nagi Kebd and Cambodia’s ambassador Soeung Rathchavy.

At the ceremony, the ambassadors submit their credentials – a document from their head of state – to The King, who then grants them the formal right to work in Sweden.

Formal audiences follow a traditional ceremony. The ambassador is collected in one of the Royal Stables’ carriages from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, and is taken to the Royal Palace of Stockholm. The King and the ambassador then talk in private for around fifteen minutes.
