Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel welcomed the presidential couple upon their arrived at the Stockholm Arlanda Airport. In the evening, King Carl XVI and Queen Silvia hosted a state dinner at the Royal Palace in honor of the Portuguese Presidential couple.  In his speech, the King highlighted Sweden and Portugal’s enduring ties that date back from the 17th century. "The links between Sweden and Portugal have united our countries for four centuries. In 1640 — in the middle of the Thirty Years' War — Portugal broke free from the Iberian Union and declared her independence. The very next year, in July 1641, Sweden and Portugal signed a trade and friendship treaty,” the King said.
