I suspect they might stay at their country's diplomatic mission house in New York. I don't know if those are officially called "embassies" or not, but, in any case, they are embassies to the UN, rather than embassies to the United States, which of course are in Washington D.C. instead.

Victoria attends right now at the "Urban Food Systems: The Nutrition Challenge" seminar at the United Nations. The event is hosted by the EAT Foundation in collaboration with the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Feeding the world’s growing population healthy food on a stable planet requires collaboration from all sectors of society and the role of cities is becoming increasingly important. The core objective of this high-level side event is to highlight the need to take a holistic approach to urban food system challenges, and to facilitate integrated strategies and new collaborations that leverage multiple benefits. The event will include a series of keynotes and an interactive panel discussion involving prominent experts from government, academia, the private sector, the UN and civil society.

It is still quite warm in NYC for this time of the year (the forecast high today was around 86 F or 30 C). The heat must have also affected Victoria, especially coming from Sweden where it is already much cooler.

A little bit-off topic, but I admire how Queen Máxima, Queen Mathilde, CP Mary, CP Victoria, and, to some extent, also Queen Letizia are involved with UN agencies and other international organizations. I wonder why the British royal ladies like Camilla and Catherine do not play the same role on the international stage and focus instead only on the BRF's patronages within the UK or, more rarely, some Commonwealth realms.

EXCLUSIVE: Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden seen exiting the United Nations Headquarters in New York City

The swedish Minister for Health Care, Public Health and Sport, Gabriel Wikström told to Expressen about his discussion with Victoria at high-level meeting "Antimicrobiological resistance". Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon attended also at the meeting.
Victoria was in place a good time before the meeting began, read through the papers and made notes. She sat along minister Gabriel Wikström and took the opportunity to ask several questions from him.
According to Wikström situation is very serious - which he also talked about with the crown princess.
- This can be compared with the climate threat - the question came up among the experts several years ago but it is only when it landed with the highest political leaders that something might happen. Sweden has been on for the query to get it to a higher status.
The forecast now is that if nothing is done, resistant bacteria kills 10 million people each year - more than cancer - and costs 100 trillion.
The serious situation has also made Victoria worried, says Wikström.
- She is very committed to this and I'm very happy that she chose to attend the meeting and thus show the importance of the issue. She asked that we speak further about this when we get home. She would like to have more information both about what is done at home and internationally. As the future head of state she wants obviously know as much as possible on one of our future major critical issues and I can not over exaggerate the importance of this issue, says Gabriel Wikström.

The court tells on it's website about Victoria's Wednesday:
She attended at high-level meeting "Antimicrobiological resistance".
Then Victoria met Dho Young-Shim, the Chairperson of United Nations World Tourism Organization’s Sustainable Tourism for Eliminating Poverty (ST-EP) Foundation. Dho Young-Shim is also a Sustainable Development Goals Advocate, like Victoria.
http://www.kungahuset.se/images/18.1...Kungahuset.jpg

Then Victoria attended at the launch of the Global Deal, and after that met the Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, Jan Eliasson.

On Thursday Victoria has attended at a meeting of Gender equality, where also Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, norwegian prime minister Erna Solberg and Forest Whitaker took part. Solberg and Whitaker are also Sustainable Development Goals Advocates, like Victoria.

Secretary-General Urges SDG Advocacy Group to Continue Promoting Universality, Indivisibility, Interdependence of Goals
Thank you for accepting my invitation to attend the seventy-first session of the General Assembly. Your attendance and participation are important for raising awareness of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and sending a strong message about the world’s commitment to achieving them.
I also thank you for your participation in the SDG Moment on Tuesday, prior to the opening of the General Assembly. The presentation and your creative engagement were very well-received. I hope the SDG Moment will inspire and serve as a model for similar presentations in the future. We want to ensure the SDGs are held up as a beacon for all future General Assembly sessions until the year 2030.
The fact that you have come to the General Assembly and are participating in numerous events demonstrates your strong personal commitment to the SDGs. As Advocates, I am relying on you to continue to promote the universality, indivisibility and interdependence of the SDGs, and commitment to leave no one behind.
I have been impressed by your activities since the Group’s launch in Davos. I commend you all for your engagement in many events since then, as well as your engagement with business leaders, and the numerous opinion pieces you have authored.
I thank you for your contributions to SDG outreach, and hope you will continue to offer the same support and effort to my successor.

Victoria met the other Sustainable Development Goal Advocates who attended at the General Assembly on Thursday at a meeting with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
Victoria's thoughts at court Instagram with a photo from the meeting
"As always, it is very rewarding and inspiring to attend the United Nations General Assembly week in New York City. In my meetings with the other ambassadors of the Sustainable Development Goals I specifically raised questions concerning water and health, the two goals which I will follow with particular attention. The UN's global sustainability goals concern us all. To manage to meet the goals requires not only high pace, but also the need for all parts of society to get involved. Sweden will probably be one of the countries that will meet the goals quickly, but there remains a lot of work for us as well."
