Queen Victoria was great friends with Harriet Sutherland-Leveson-Gower, Duchess of Sutherland (1806-1868), but this envelope might have been addressed to her daughter-in-law as well, Anne Sutherland-Leveson-Gower, Duchess of Sutherland (1829-1888), who was Mistress of the Robes to the Queen from 1870 to 1874.
