Sarah Ferguson looked stunning during a recent charity dinner.

The Duchess of York was in Africa to promote the launch of her charity Street Child that aims to build and renovate 1,000 schools and give education to 100,000 children. In one snap, she was photographed with designer Madam Wokie wearing a stunning multicolor dress made from the traditional Kente fabric that featured a mix of purple-red and gold, and a gold belt.

Wokie shared the picture on Instagram and wrote, “It was a pleasure styling and designing a bespoke Madam Wokie piece for Sarah.” The designer also thanked Ferguson for wearing her work for the Street Child charity dinner.

Ferguson has been sharing her charity engagements on social media. Last week, she shared a snap of her with schoolchildren from Port Loko, Sierra Leone. The students were from a school that’s supported by her charity.

“It breaks my heart that 121m children don’t have a chance to go to school which is why I am here to launch Street Child’s campaign,” the Duchess of York wrote. Ferguson also called out everyone to support the charity and its brilliant initiative to help the children.

Aside from championing kids’ education, Ferguson also supported the #HelloToKindness campaign. Prince Andrew’s ex-wife penned an open letter and sent it to Hello! According to the duchess, she’s glad for Twitter and Instagram because these platforms allow her to directly communicate with people. However, the sites also terrify her because of the abusive comments, bullying, sniping, sexism and racism that have become common online.

Ferguson feels that it’s time to take a stand and stressed that this isn’t about freedom of speech anymore. She added that it’s not acceptable to post abusive content or threats online only because other people disagree with one’s perception. Ferguson added that it’s not acceptable to pit women against one another and to troll people viciously online.

Ferguson’s open letter was published after Kensington Palace reacted to the trolls attacking Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle online. The Duchess of Sussex, in particular, has been slammed online and has been accused of faking her pregnancy. Just recently, many netizens complained about double standards due to the unfair treatment Markle has been receiving from the press.
