Royalty on The Oprah Show
Mind your manners as you look back at when The Oprah Show has hosted royals.
Prince Egon von Furstenberg of Austria
Austria's Prince Egon von Furstenberg described his life on The Oprah Show in 1996 as a fairy-tale existence. He showed off the Roman villa—one of 10 estates—that housed his wide-ranging art collection and talked about his royal upbringing. Appearing on the show with his fashion icon ex-wife Diane von Furstenberg, Prince Egon recalled why he decided to leave the castle and pursue work. "From age 18, I saw life had to be something else. I decided that starting work was something I wanted to do, not just living," he said. "I wanted to be free to do exactly what I want."
