TORONTO – Kathy Griffin says she didn’t hesitate to wake up early for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s walk down the aisle over the weekend.
But the star-gazing comedian felt like the glitzy ceremony was a bit of a letdown.
“I actually thought there would be more celebrities,” Griffin confessed on Tuesday.
The guest list for the lavish wedding included A-listers such as Victoria and David Beckham, Priyanka Chopra and Serena Williams. Although Griffin says she was pleased by the famous faces she saw, the noble festivities could’ve been stacked with more big names.
In particular, she loved seeing George Clooney and his wife Amal dressed in their best. Then there was talk show queen Oprah Winfrey.
“When I saw my Oprah, I just wanted her to go, ‘I’m at the royyyal wedding,'” she said, imitating the host’s famous cadence.
“In many ways, for me, it was more like Oprah’s day. And I think to Oprah it was probably her day too.”
Griffin is in the midst of a comeback tour after wading into controversial territory last year when she posed holding what appeared to be a fake severed head with Donald Trump’s likeness.
The mock photograph tossed her into a scandal that she says involved a federal investigation and her U.S. tour being cancelled.
Her return, billed as the Laugh Your Head Off tour, stops in Ottawa on Wednesday before heading to Toronto on Friday and Kitchener, Ont. on Saturday.
She’ll also play Calgary on May 31 and Vancouver on June 2.
