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.

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."

They discussed the proposal presented by Yunus at the SDG group meeting. Yunus briefed Victoria about social business and its potential in addressing pressing global challenges like poverty, unemployment and climate issues. They talked about the possibility of launching social business initiatives in Sweden.

Victoria said at her speech that she has really looked forward to this day.
- It's always special for my family to come here to Borgholm. We love Öland and have done so for generations. The Harvest Festival, I have been looking forward to it, she said in the introduction to his speech and continued:
- You have created a beautiful and important tradition which reminds us that the harvest time is a time for gratitude.
The rest of the speech, she emphasized, among other things, how important agriculture is and the harvest festival helps to preserve an important heritage.

From Svensk Damtidning's article about Victoria's four days at the United Nations General Assembly:
Before attending at the General Assembly, Victoria visited the Capsule Show and chatted with the swedish exhibitors. Victoria met also her friend Peter Forsberg and his partner Nicole Nordin, who were there to launch their shoe collection for Inuikii.
Victoria attended at the opening of the Assembly, sat at the first row, heard president Obama's speech and Andrea Bocelli singing "Nessun Dorma". Victoria stood up and applauded.
Jan Eliasson, the Deputy Secretary-General of United Nations, told to Svensk Damtidning that he was happy that the crown princess was there. Eliasson said that they at the UN appreciate her strong commitment to international matters and that she uses her name and position to mobilise support for the new sustainable development objectives.
Prime minister Stefan Löfven launched his Global Deal and Victoria sat at the first row. Löfven said to Svensk Damtidning that Victoria told it was very interesting and he is very happy that Victoria was there, it means a lot when the crown princess shows her interest.
Victoria attended also at a reception at the consul general's residence at 600 Park Avenue. Prime minister Stefan Löfven and ambassador Olof Skoog, the Permanent Representative of Sweden to the United Nations and members of business life attended. Also Björn Lyrvall, the Ambassador of Sweden to the United States attended and said that it is fantastic to see how big the interest is towards Sweden. The Crown Princess does a wonderful work to promote Sweden and lift up important issues.

The seminar began with a discussion of the UN sustainability development goals - Agenda 2030 - and why these goals are important for the Baltic Sea.
In a panel discussion then was raised the question about the danger of chemicals used to purify water and how they affect the marine environment. At the end of the morning discussed how different stakeholders can contribute that the UN's sustainability goals are met.
