"We are definitely out of the studio," Oprah says. "So far out of the studio, we're at the Taj Mahal in India!"
The Taj Mahal is literally a love story set in stone. Shah Jahan, the greatest of the Mughal emperors, built it as a tomb for his beloved third wife.
Here, Oprah leaves the Taj Mahal with her guide. "It's beautiful," Oprah says. "There are no words for it, actually."
After a whirlwind week in India, Oprah's last stop is the ancient city of Jaipur. It is nicknamed Pink City because in 1876 the buildings were colored in terra-cotta pink to welcome Prince Albert. It is also the ancestral home to the Maharani royal family—the last family to rule this province in India.
The queen of Jaipur—along with her daughter, Princess Diya Kumari—host Oprah and her goddaughter, Kirby, to a party at the 300-year-old City Palace. Oprah is greeted by festivities, including musicians and traditional painted elephants. "I saw these camels dressed in gilded garments, and the painted elephants and the horses," Oprah says. "And it just knocked my Spanx off."
The princess's husband, Narendra Singh Rajawat, escorts Oprah. "We get there, and there's the horse-driven carriage," Oprah says. "[My goddaughter] Kirby and I are both like starstruck kids in a candy store."
