Oprah On Hanging Out With Meghan Markle’s Mom

Oprah Winfrey scored a coveted invitation to the royal wedding on May 19, which wasn’t too surprising because, well, she’s Oprah. Now, the host is opening up about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big day and what really went on when she spent the day hanging out with Meghan’s mom, Doria Ragland.

After Winfrey and Ragland hung out, some reports claimed Ragland left “laden” with gifts—and that Oprah was trying to win her over to land an exclusive interview, either with the royal couple or Ragland herself (or both).

“The story was that Meghan’s mom had come to my house and she left laden with gifts,” Winfrey explained during an interview with ET Online. “You know what the gifts were? First of all, she’s great at yoga, so I said, ‘Bring your yoga mat and your sneaks in case we just want to do yoga on the lawn.’ So one of the bags was a yoga mat and the other was lunch.”

Winfrey did admit to gifting Ragland with one thing—a basket of fresh, Oprah-grown kumquats.

“She said, ‘I love kumquats,’ and I said, ‘I have a kumquat tree! You want some kumquats?’ So it was a basket of kumquats, people,” Winfrey said. “For all of the people who said I am getting her gifts and I’m trying to bribe her for an interview—they were kumquats. If kumquats can get you an interview, I’m all for it!”

When asked about the royal wedding, Winfrey echoed what people all over the world have been thinking—the moment was beautiful and even bigger than Meghan and Harry’s love.

“It was more than a wedding, I thought,” she explained. “It was a cultural moment. And you could not be there or watching on television…and not feel that there was a shift that just happened in the middle of it…I think it’s bigger than them and I think it bodes well for hope for all of us.”
