It’s been six weeks since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said their “I dos,” but when Oprah Winfrey talks, we listen. And if she wants to talk about the royal wedding, we’re not going to complain. Opes is featured in the August issue of British Vogue and she spoke about the glorious day.
“It left me feeling that anything is possible through the power of love,” Winfrey told the mag, and then referenced Rev. Michael Curry‘s passionate sermon. “Reverend Curry was right!”
Oprah also shared her thoughts on the “astounding,” history-making May 19 wedding in the upcoming issue of O magazine, saying, “I was unprepared for the depth of emotion I felt stepping onto the grounds of Windsor Castle. It literally took my breath away … I exclaimed out loud to no one in particular: ‘Whoa! This right here is a whole ‘nother level!'”
She continued: “I thought immediately of the history, the legacy, the astounding moment Meghan Markle was stepping into. And what it would take to be prepared for such a moment. The life she was leaving behind and the new world to which she was rising—all part of a destiny she helped design … I can’t wait to see the goodness that will come from their union. Goodness that I know for sure will help change the way the world thinks about what is possible, even more than it already has.”
And in the wake of all the ickiness we keep hearing from the Markle side of Meghan’s family, it’s clear from Oprah that the Duchess of Sussex gets it all from her mom, Doria Ragland, who was a recent guest at Casa de Winfrey.
In her interview with ET Online a couple weeks back, Oprah spoke about how great Doria is as well as the royal nuptials themselves, an experience she described as “transformative.”
She explained, at the time: “It was more than a wedding, I thought. 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.”
If every guest can give us awesome dirt on the royal wedding like Oprah and Meghan’s pal, Janina Gavankar, we’ll take it. No matter how after the fact it is. It’s not like we’re ever going to get bored of hearing about it.
