Oprah Winfrey is finally dishing on her relationship with Meghan Markle's mum Doria Ragland.
And let's just say it's even better than her Christmas Special.
Before we saw the queen of TV attend the royal wedding, there'd been murmurs that she and Doria had been hanging out...
And more importantly if a sit-down interview is in the works.
Oprah's appearance at the royal wedding had everyone wondering if an interview would happen further down the track.
Chatting to Entertainment Tonight, Oprah gave a little more insight into the friendship she has with Doria.
"The story was that Meghan's mum had come to my house and she left laden with gifts," Oprah explained.
"You know what the gifts were? First of all, 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.' So one of the bags was a yoga mat and the other was lunch."
Don't worry, Oprah dishes on what they ate.
We know the Weight Watchers owner loves to do yoga.
"She said, 'I love kumquats,' and I said, 'I have a kumquat tree! You want some kumquats?' So it was a basket of kumquats, people!"
Well - she doesn't deny it.
"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!"
Weeks later we saw Oprah at the royal wedding - and if anyone can grow interview-confirming kumquats, we're sure it's Oprah.
We're not convinced that an interview isn't in the works...
Speaking of the royal wedding, the 64-year-old said it was "transformative."
"It was more than a wedding, I thought," she explained.
"It was a cultural moment. And you could not be there or watching on television… and not feel that there was a shift that just happened in the middle of it."
"I think it's bigger than them and I think it bodes well for hope for all of us."
"It was more than a wedding!"
