The Royal Wedding Deeply Affected Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey has revealed new details about the royal wedding, and you’re going to want to read every word she’s said.

Winfrey’s never been more relatable. She’s right about how this particular royal wedding resonated with so many people. Even watching from the comfort of our homes, Meghan and Harry’s wedding was overwhelming on an emotional level. We, too, were overcome with a range of feelings. To be able to experience that in person, well, we might not have been able to keep our cool.

Not only did Winfrey write she could “feel the power of love” at the ceremony, but the wedding was more than just an elegant occasion. For her, this particular royal wedding sent an important message. 
“And I thought immediately of the history, the legacy, the astounding moment Meghan Markle was stepping into,” she said. “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.” 
Now more than ever, we needed Meghan and Harry’s wedding. The fabulous affair was hugely impactful, especially during a time of fear, heartbreak and people losing hope on a daily basis. The royal wedding was so much more than a wedding — it was an inspiring event.   
“It gave us hope, that wedding,” Winfrey wrote. “Hope that we can all do what Mara Gay described in her New York Times opinion piece as ‘imagining the day when we wake up and remember who we want to be.'” She continued, “We all want to feel as radiant, joyful, and alive as Meghan looked on her way down the aisle to meet Harry. Both of them were glowing with happiness. 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.”
Winfrey also echoed similar thoughts while chatting with British Vogue for the August issue (via People). “It left me feeling that anything is possible through the power of love,” she said about the wedding. She also referenced Bishop Michael Bruce Curry, who delivered the sermon at the royal wedding and professed multiple times, “Love is the only way.” According to Winfrey, “Reverend Curry was right!” 
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. The fact that even Winfrey was affected this way by the royal wedding shows how Meghan and Harry’s romance is far from just another typical celebrity romance. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will no doubt continue influencing the world in powerful and positive ways.
