Oprah Winfrey reveals she does yoga with Doria Ragland
The 64-year-old television host was rumoured to be lining up an interview with the Duchess of Sussex’s mother in order to find out all the gossip regarding the royal family.
LONDON - The Duchess of Sussex’s mother does yoga in her back garden with Oprah Winfrey.
The 64-year-old television host was rumoured to be lining up an interview with Doria Ragland in order to find out all the gossip regarding the royal family after her 36-year-old daughter - who was known as Meghan Markle until her wedding day - married Prince Harry, 33, in front of the world at Windsor Castle, Windsor, on 19 May.
However, the outspoken philanthropist is adamant that was never the case and she actually went round to Ragland’s home to do some exercise in the sunshine with her.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Winfrey explained: “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. 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! 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.”
However, Winfrey hasn’t just made friends with Ragland as she was also among the small list of people and celebrities who were invited to Meghan and Harry’s big day.
The beautiful ceremony - which was attended by the likes of Queen Elizabeth, George Clooney and David Beckham - had the whole world in awe.
Winfrey said: “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.”
