The Duchess of Sussex's latest appearance proves that despite stepping down from the royal family, she remains one of the chicest royals to take style inspiration from.

Whilst appearing as a guest on the New York Times's DealBook Online Summit, Meghan discussed the importance of economic and professional parity for women. For the appearance, the duchess wore a black crew-neck knit jumper, matching black trousers, a statement belt by Salvatore Ferragamo, black pointed-toe pumps, and a red poppy flower pinned to her top— for Remembrance Week. Meghan kept her beauty look simple and fresh for the day, opting for a subtle smoky eye, nude lip, and flushed cheeks for the appearance.

During the conversation with New York Times' Andrew Ross Sorkin, Meghan discussed the importance of paid leave, which she recently wrote an open letter to Congress about.

"When my life and my lifestyle were very different, I always stood up for what was right," Meghan said during the conversation. "I had been gone from the U.S. for a really long time, I lived in Canada for seven years for work, and then moved to the U.K., and to come back and now be a mother of two, and to see that the U.S. is one of only six countries in the entire world that does not offer any form of national paid leave, just didn't make sense."

The duchess added, "This is one of those issues that is not red or blue. We can all agree that people need support, certainly when they've just had a child. We have a five-month-old baby, so it is a sensitive one for us. We had the luxury of having had that time—not just for moms but also for fathers as well—to be with our newborn."
