Meghan Markle lectured about vaccine equity and how the wealthiest nations are hoarding vaccine doses from poor countries while wearing a $4,500 white designer dress and what appeared to be $16,500 Cartier earrings, a $12,000 Cartier watch and a $6,900 Cartier ‘love’ bracelet during Saturday’s ‘Wokestock’ in New York City.

The Duchess of Sussex has been seen wearing expensive designer jackets and long-sleeve clothing for most of the four-day ‘power trip’ to New York City – despite temperatures hovering in the mid 70s (Fahrenheit) – but she shed the layers for a white San Gallo Couture Mini Dress designed by Valentino.

She donned the dress, which sells on Harrod’s for  $4,516 (£3,300) for Saturday night’s event in New York City’s Central Park, where she and Prince Harry spoke about getting the COVID-19 vaccine to everyone around the world.

The website selling the dress says, ‘The gentle structure of the crepe silhouette is signature Valentino.’

‘Bringing endless versatility to your events edit, this Valentino dress is defined by its beaded embroidery and floral accents to the chest, sleeves and hem,’ according to the website.

‘Otherwise maintaining a decidedly pared-back shift profile which cuts just shy of the knees, it fastens at the reverse with a fuss-free concealed zip to allow for effortless dressing.’

She paired the dress with black heels and wore her hair in a low ponytail.

During Meghan and Harry’s joint, coordinated speech, Meghan said, ‘Every single person on this planet has a fundamental right to get this vaccine. That’s the point, but that’s not happening.

‘And while in this country and many others, you can go almost anywhere and get vaccinated, billions of people around the world cannot,’ she said.

‘This year, the world is expected to produce enough doses to meet the target of vaccinating 70 percent of people in every single country, but it is wrong that so much of the vaccine supply has only gone to 10 wealthy nations so far and not everyone else. It’s just not ok.’

The white dress she wore on stage in Central Park on Saturday was Meghan’s latest outfit change.

Just three months after the birth of daughter Lilibet, the Sussexes left their baby and two-year-old son Archie at home in their $15.7 million Montecito mansion on Wednesday and swept into Manhattan.

Ex-Suits actress Meghan, 40, ditched her laid-back Californian vibe for what one onlooker called ‘a wardrobe fit for Succession‘ – referring to the hit show about a family locked in a bitter power struggle.

With sweeping convoys and police outriders bringing New York traffic to a halt, photo ops with the great and the good and just the right amount of posing with underprivileged children, the visit was topped off triumphantly last night.

It seems that, in America at least, the Duke and Duchess have no intention of fading away – let alone embracing the ‘privacy’ they once so desperately claimed to crave. Pictured, Loro Piana cashmere coat £3850, matching trousers £1300, Manolo Blahnick shoes £425, total £5575
