OPRAH Winfrey and Meghan Markle’s mum had a special bonding day eating kumquats and doing yoga in her garden.
The talk show host legend said she spent six hours with Doria Ragland, 61, three weeks before the royal wedding.
Speaking to ET Online, The Wrinkle in Time actress said: “Meghan’s mom had come to my house and she left laden with gifts.
“She’s great at yoga, so I said, ‘Bring your yoga mat and your sneaks in case we just want to do yoga on the lawn.”
Doria was spotted leaving Oprah’s house carrying a basket of gifts – which Oprah has denied was a bribe to secure an interview.
She added: “For all of the people who said I am getting her gifts and I’m trying to bribe her for an interview — they were kumquats.
“If kumquats can get you an interview, I’m all for it.
“I love kumquats. I have a kumquat tree.”
Oprah was a guest at Meghan’s royal wedding to Prince Harry at Windsor on May 19.
The talk show host was all smiles when she strolled up to St George’s chapel.
But her appearance stoked rumours that she was lining Meghan’s family up for an explosive TV interview.

Days after wedding, proud mum Doria lined up with the Royals as she was welcomed into the family.
She has been widely praised for her compsure and grace during her daughter’s rise in profile, but this week Meghan’s outspoken half sister Samantha launched a bitter tirade saying she looked like a “hockey player in the penalty box” at the Royal Wedding.
