The series of strokes that led to Sketli's repeated hospitalization also led him to announce his intent to abdicate at the end of 2016. He formerly did so in a small ceremony on the morning of 1 January, 2017, at Capital Palace in Járnfjördur. In the same ceremony, his daughter Crica took the Oath of the Crown, thereby formally accepting the position of Meriadni head of state.
