Helping raise money for the Royal Marines Association, the Duchess of Sussex donned a striking red Kalika cape-effect crepe gown from Safiyaa ($1,089 at Net-A-Porter) that is perfect for special occasions. A subtle cutout detail tempers the volume and movement of the sleeves.

Earlier the same day, journalist Victoria Mather referred to Meghan Markle as “five clicks up from trailer trash” while appearing on MSNBC.

“I think what has really, really upset the British public is that Meghan Markle, who many people consider as only, you know, five clicks up from trailer trash, has actually tried to disrespect the queen,” Mather said. “And the queen is the most respected person, most respected woman, in the world.”

One of their final appearances as senior members of the royal family, Meghan and Harry will transition out of their roles starting on March 31.

Toting a red satin rectangular clutch Capri bag from Manolo Blahnik featuring flap-over design and crystal buckle ($1,385 at Selfridges), she completed her look with crimson Stuart Weitzman high heel Leigh pumps and matching crystal beaded drop Simone Rocha earrings.
