BALTIMORE (AP) - Oprah Winfrey’s longtime partner, Stedman Graham, said he could have joined her at the royal wedding, but was happy to be giving the commencement speech at Coppin State University instead.

Graham confided to the 661 graduates that he preferred the setting of the Baltimore gym to the pomp surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Graham said he’s reconciled to the fact people think of him as “Oprah’s man.” Don’t be concerned with how others define you, he said: “The only thing that matters is how you define yourselves.”

Graham actually did double duty at Coppin Saturday, speaking at both the morning and afternoon ceremonies.
