In addition to attending Meghan and Prince Harry's May 2018 wedding at Windsor Castle, Oprah is also one of the couple's neighbors in their Montecito, California neighborhood, where they moved this past summer.

In December, Oprah shared an Instagram video in which she unpacks a "basket of deliciousness" of Clevr Blends goodies from "my neighbor 'M.' " A spokesperson for Meghan confirmed to PEOPLE that she had "made her first private investment" in the woman-led wellness firm.

Oprah is also teaming up with Prince Harry for a mental health docuseries for Apple TV+. In a 2019 interview with podcast host and journalist Bryony Gordon, Harry said the series — which will premiere this spring — will unveil examples of "human spirit fighting back from the darkest places."

"When I did your podcast two years ago the response made me realize what an impact sharing my story could have, and what an impact other stories can have for so many who are suffering silently," Harry told Gordon. "If the viewers can relate to the pain and perhaps the experience, then it could save lives, as we will focus on prevention and positive outcomes."
