Oprah Winfrey was honored to attend the nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in May, but in a new interview, the talk show queen is sharing how she almost made a huge royal gaffe with her outfit.
Speaking to British Vogue, the 64-year-old star revealed how two days before the wedding, she became wary that the cream dress that she had commissioned designer Stella McCartney to create for her in fact looked white.
“[It] looked white, not cream,” she said, recalling how the color question arose while she was examining a photo of the dress. “I googled, ‘Can you wear white to a wedding?’ Answer: ‘No, don’t risk it.’”
Consequently, McCartney worked “round the clock” to redo the gown in pink.

Winfrey also addressed whether she plans to get into politics, following calls by many fans for her to run for president.
“In that political structure -- all the non-truths, the bullsh**, the crap, the nastiness, the backhanded backroom stuff that goes on -- I feel like I could not exist,” she said. “I would not be able to do it. It's not a clean business. It would kill me.”
