America’s Queen ― also called Oprah Winfrey ― was among the many shock visitors and showed up in a customized, blush pink gown by Stella McCartney with an announcement hat to rub shoulders with Queen Elizabeth II.
Though it’s unknown precisely what the connection is between Oprah and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the media mogul spilled the beans on what it was like attending the marriage of the century (not less than, up to now).
“It felt like one other stage of every part. It felt like greater than a marriage,” the 64-year-old told Extra at Monday’s premiere of the brand new collection, “Love Is __” on OWN, the cable TV community she began. “It felt like a shift in tradition. I left extra hopeful.”
In a separate purple carpet interview with Entertainment Tonight on Monday, Oprah known as the nuptials “transformative,” and spoke about what it was like hanging out with Meghan’s mom, Doria Ragland.
The two frolicked collectively at Oprah’s house in California a couple of weeks earlier than the royal marriage ceremony, although the mogul insists she didn’t ply Ragland with presents so as to score a future interview ― opposite to sure media stories.
“The story was that Meghan’s mother had come to my home and she or he left laden with presents,” Oprah stated. “You know what the presents have been? First of all, she’s nice at yoga, so I stated, ‘Bring your yoga mat and your sneaks in case we simply need to do yoga on the garden.’ So one of many baggage was a yoga mat and the opposite was lunch.”
And the opposite presents? A basket of fruit.
″[Doria] stated, ‘I really like kumquats,’ and I stated, ‘I’ve a kumquat tree! You need some kumquats?’ So it was a basket of kumquats, folks,” Oprah added. “For the entire individuals who stated I get her presents and I’m attempting to bribe her for an interview ― they have been kumquats. If kumquats can get you an interview, I’m all for it!”
No phrase but on whether or not Ragland plans to speak with Oprah on TV. And clearly, if anybody lands an interview with Prince Harry and the previous Meghan Markle, it must be Oprah. We’ll be ready!
