Oprah Winfrey attended the May 19 nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Now, she is opening up about the event in the August edition of O, The Oprah Magazine.
“I was unprepared for the depth of emotion I felt stepping onto the grounds of Windsor Castle,” Oprah wrote. “It literally took my breath away. I exclaimed out loud to no one in particular: ‘Whoa! This right here is a whole ‘nother level!'”
“And 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,” she continued. “The life she was leaving behind and the new world to which she was rising—all part of a destiny she helped design.”
She added that she felt “the power of love” watching the nuptials.
“It gave us hope, that wedding,” Oprah 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.'”
“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,” Oprah added. “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.”
