On the day of the Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding, more than 29 million people gathered around their televisions to catch a glimpse of the blushing bride — and the famous celebrity guests.
In the Yahoo Canada studios, there was an audible gasp as some of the biggest names in entertainment arrived, including the one and only Oprah Winfrey.
Winfrey was invited through her royal connection to Markle — more specifically, Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland. The pair reportedly sat down with the media legend for an exclusive interview prior to the wedding at Winfrey’s home in California.
However, while audiences across the pond were fawning over Winfrey’s appearance and her custom blush dress by Stella McCartney – the British press zeroed-in on the mystery man accompanying her.
On this week’s episode of our all royals podcast, Make It Reign, we get the inside scoop from a source close to the “mystery man” about how one royal wedding guest quickly reached BFF status with the woman, the myth, the legend — Oprah Winfrey.
