As many know, Oprah Winfrey was one of the A-list guests at Meghan Markle’s wedding to Prince Harry. What’s more, the chat show host has seemingly formed somewhat of a friendship with the Duchess of Sussex’s mother. But the exact way in which Oprah won Doria Ragland over may come as a surprise.
Oprah herself was born in Kosciusko, Mississippi, on January 29, 1954. And the future billionaire came from humble beginnings, being born into poverty to a teenage mom. Oprah’s childhood was often a traumatic one, too, as she has recounted on several occasions since her rise to fame.
For instance, Oprah has opened up about the molestation that she suffered as a child and teenager at the hands of family members. While still just 14 years old, she also became pregnant; tragically, though, her son would pass away while only an infant.
