OPRAH WINFREY EXPLAINS WHY SHE NEVER MARRIED STEDMAN GRAHAM

We're listening! Fans have been fascinated by Oprah Winfrey's long-term but vaguely mysterious relationship with Stedman Graham for decades, and now, the media mogul is spilling some beans in her "What I Know for Sure" column in O Mag.

Winfrey starts out by discussing why she thinks Valentine's Day is NBD, and has since she was a teen. Winfrey explained: "I was Miss Black Tennessee. Many of the other girls were receiving flowers and gifts from their beaux. My boyfriend at the time, Bubba -- yes, real name -- sent me nothing. I felt bad about that and complained to another contestant. She laid this wisdom on me: 'Girl, if your man has put a flower on your mind, you won't need no flowers in a vase!'"

Then, in 1986, when she started hanging with Graham, she was determined to play it cool. She said: "I thought he was nice enough, but I wasn't that impressed. He was polite, yes, and kind. The sort of guy who sits with an ailing friend. Tall and handsome, for sure. But actually too handsome, I thought, to be interested in me. I figured he must be a player. So did all my producers. They warned me not to get involved with that Stedman guy."

But despite her caution, their relationship ended up taking off, and fans have been waiting ever since for her to make it official.

Winfrey explained: "For years, there were hundreds of tabloid stories, weekly, on whether we would marry. In 1993, the moment after I said yes to his proposal, I had doubts. I realized I didn't actually want a marriage. I wanted to be asked. I wanted to know he felt I was worthy of being his missus, but I didn't want the sacrifices, the compromises, the day-in-day-out commitment required to make a marriage work. My life with the show was my priority, and we both knew it."

She continued: "He and I agree that had we tied the marital knot, we would not still be together. Our relationship works because he created an identity beyond being 'Oprah's man' (he teaches Identity Leadership around the world and has written multiple books on the subject). And because we share all the values that matter (integrity being No. 1). And because we relish seeing the other fulfill and manifest their destiny and purpose."

MEGHAN MARKLE’S FATHER TO TESTIFY AGAINST HER IN COURT, HARRY ANNOUNCES INVICTUS

Ugh, this guy! Meghan Markle's 2020 drama is continuing apace. Shortly after notifying the world of her and husband Prince Harry's plan to step down from their senior roles in the royal family, news broke that her estranged father Thomas Markle will be a key witness against her in an upcoming court case.

This is the guy who has been busted selling private info on her to the bloids, and who opted to not walk her down the aisle when she married Harry in May of 2018, citing a recent heart attack.

The Duchess of Sussex, 38, is suing the Mail on Sunday for printing a letter she wrote Thomas after he absented himself from their wedding festivities. The 75-year-old will testify for the paper, according to docs filed in London's High Court.

The documents claim he will also testify that she was behind a campaign to make him look bad in the lead-up to her wedding. Items of evidence are said to include text messages between him and Harry.

"I've done nothing to hurt you Meghan or anyone else," the dad wrote, according to the report. "I'm sorry my heart attack is … any inconvenience for you."

In the filings, he claims he released the letter to the Mail because he felt she was misleading the public in her depiction of their relationship.

INVICTUS

Meanwhile, although Harry and Meghan don't want to be royals full-time, Harry clearly still wants to stay involved. Harry launched the Invictus Games in 2014. On Wednesday, he announced they'd be in Germany.

He wrote on social media: "Here we come Düsseldorf! The new home for the 2022 and sixth Invictus Games. Having previously been held in London, Orlando, Toronto, Sydney, and upcoming The Hague this year in May - Düsseldorf will welcome over 500 competitors as they showcase their talents, determination and camaraderie to the world!"

The post continued: "The #InvictusGames is an international adaptive multi-sport event, created by The Duke of Sussex, in which wounded, injured or sick (WIS) armed services personnel and veterans show the world what they're capable of in a series of adaptive sports, ranging from wheelchair basketball to indoor rowing. The Duke, having spent 10 years serving in the Armed Forces, set up the @WeAreInvictusGames to celebrate the power of sport rehabilitation (both physically and mentally) and to generate a wider appreciation for those who served their country beyond their time in uniform."

MEGHAN MARKLE DEEMED NON-ESSENTIAL FOR SUMMIT ON HER FUTURE

Meghan Markle did not participate in the so-called "Sandringham summit" that addressed her, husband Prince Harry, and their baby Archie's future in the royal family, according to multiple reports.

Harry met with Queen Elizabeth, his father Prince Charles and his brother Prince William at the queen's private estate in Norfolk Monday night. It was Harry's first face-time with the 93-year-old monarch since he and Meghan issued the bombshell report stating their intentions to step back from royal life.

Since then, Meghan has returned to Canada, where the pair are expected to spend about half—if not more—of their time now. Some reports even claim Meghan hopes to never step foot in Britain again, though most are dismissing those rumors.

Still, sources tell Newsweek that she decided Harry could speak for both of their intentions. "In the end, the Sussexes decided that it wasn't necessary for the duchess to join," the insider blurted.

In a statement issued Monday night, the Queen said the supported their decision, while acknowledging that she wasn't in favor of it: "My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan's desire to create a new life as a young family. Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family."

In the coming days, final decisions regarding security and finances will be arrived at, the queen said.

Several reports indicate that Meghan and Harry will look to Hollywood for a payday, with some saying Meghan has already done voiceover work for Disney and is in talks with luxury brands for brand ambassador contracts.

PRINCE WILLIAM AND HARRY ISSUE JOINT STATEMENT SLAMMING FEUD REPORT, QUEEN SPEAKS OUT

As Queen Elizabeth gathered bigwig royals for a summit over Megxit, Prince William and Prince Harry came out with a rare joint statement about the persistent rumors that they are having a dramatic falling out.

Here's what it says: "Despite clear denials, a false story ran in a UK newspaper today speculating about the relationship between The Duke of Sussex and The Duke of Cambridge. For brothers who care so deeply about the issues surrounding mental health, the use of inflammatory language in this way is offensive and potentially harmful."

Royal reporter Rebecca English weighed in on Twitter, writing: "It's clear from my conversations this morning that BOTH brothers are deeply, deeply unhappy about suggestions that Harry feels he has been 'bullied' out of the Royal Family by William."

Reaction to their statement on Twitter from royal watchers was mixed, with many applauding them for their transparency, and others saying it was too little too late. Wrote one: I will believe that William is not a bully when I see it on Sussex Royal instagram and website, with Sussex Royal letterhead. Until then William is guilty as charged, and in no way should be a part of any mental health organizations.

As a reminder, Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, announced their intention to seek financial independence and move to North America part-time last week, an incredibly complicated decision, that left many questions up in the air about the status of their titles and responsibilities.

SUMMIT

The 93-year-old monarch met with Prince Charles, the heir to her throne, and William and Harry to Sandringham House to sort out the details of Megxit. She issued a statement after in complete support of their decision.

"Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family," Her Majesty said in a statement released Monday. "My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan's desire to create a new life as a young family. Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family."

The Queen then said "Harry and Meghan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives.

"It has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the UK," she continued. "These are complex matters for my family to resolve, and there is some more work to be done, but I have asked for final decisions to be reached in the coming days."

A major issue is money. Harry and Meghan have said they will no longer use a Sovereign Grant fund to pay for their office costs, but would still use public money to pay for trips at the request of the government. They also want to remain in Frogmore Cottage, with the Queen's permission.

Another open question is whether Meghan would allowed to financially benefit from her celeb status, acting as a brand ambassador for fashion and fragrance houses, like Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts. (Reports indicate she is already lining up potential deals).

And what about security? Taxpayer funded security for the royals would become extraordinarily expensive if they were lived in North America and the U.K.

NEXT?

Sources tell ET that Meghan and Harry are looking at places in Canada and L.A. "They will retain their home in Frogmore and carry out duties in the UK," the source explains. "But also spend the majority of their time in North America."

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has reportedly "privately assured" the Queen that his taxpayers will help foot the bill for Meghan and Harry's security when they're in Canada.

The family would be protected by Royal Canadian Mounties, guards who represent the Queen in Canada, according to the Evening Standard.
