According to the publication, it was Oprah that had reached out to Meghan prior to the wedding via CBS. If what they’re saying is true, they’ve also said that originally their first meeting was only though overtures through the television network. After that, the television and film magnate offered a hand of friendship to the former actress and wanted to be a mentor towards her. She even became yoga pals with Doria, the duchess’ mother.

Oprah said that Doria loved Kumquats and asked if she wanted some as she had a tree full of the small fruits. They even spent an afternoon doing yoga and snacking on desserts made from Kumquats.
