The well-known TV personality couldn’t have been more excited and honored to be invited to the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. However, during a brand new interview, Oprah Winfrey revealed that her appearance at the event could have ended disastrously.
During her chat with Vogue, Oprah said that only two days before the May wedding, she realized her cream-colored dress that she had hired designer Stella McCartney to custom-create for the royal ceremony actually looked white.
‘[It] looked white and not cream. I googled, ‘Can you wear white to a wedding?’ Answer: ‘No, don’t risk it.’’
As a result, the designer put even more time and effort inro redoing the same gown but in a pink color.
It is safe to say that it was a great choice as Oprah looked stunning in the pale pink gown she wore at the wedding.
Speaking of the designer that created her gorgeous dress, she also rocked another McCartney design on the cover of the latest Vogue issue – a taffeta gown accessorized with a pair of white-and-yellow-diamond and emerald Buccellati earrings.

During the same interview, she also talked about how inspirational the entire wedding was, especially the sermon of Reverend Curry.
‘It left me feeling that anything is possible through the power of love. Reverend Curry was right!’
Finally, she addressed the reports that she may get into politics or even run for president, something many people really want.
‘In that political structure – all the non-truths, the bullsh**, the crap and the nastiness and the backhanded backroom stuff that usually goes on – I feel like I could not exist. I wouldn’t be able to do it. It’s not a clean business. It would kill me.’
