The King and Queen of Sweden were able to walk down memory lane on their state visit to Mexico.

On the final day of their tour, Their Majesties were in the ruined city of Uxmal, which they visited on a 1982 state visit to Mexico. The couple even used a photo from this part of the tour to wish everyone well as the weekend began.

Uxmal is one of the best-known ruined cities from Mayan times and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia visited Mexico on the invitation of President Andrés Manuel Lopéz Obrador to “consolidate the good relationship between Sweden and Mexico and to strengthen economic and political relations, with a focus on innovation, partnership, trade and investment,” according to the Royal Court.

They were in Mexico from 12 to 14 March where they met the President and First Lady, met members of the Swedish community, attended events based on business and children’s rights, and visited the Mexican Senate.

The couple left Mexico on 15 March to return to Sweden where Crown Princess Victoria was serving as Regent.
