From actual royalty to Hollywood royalty.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle took center stage at the star-studded ceremony One805 Live! Charity event in Santa Barbara on Friday.
The couple – who have just returned from the Invictus Games in Germany – appeared in their element as they walked around with fellow guests Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres at the fundraiser, which was held at Kevin Costner’s $26 million estate.

General admission tickets for One805 Live! at a cost of $350, while the “Last Chance Tickets” table was advertised at $12,000. This event raises money for first responder agencies in Santa Barbara County.
Harry, 39, kept things casual with a black shirt and jacket, while Markle, 42, wore an elegant monochromatic coat. She wore her hair back in a tight bun, and was seen showing off her $20,000 Cartier Tank watch, which previously belonged to Princess Diana.
Harry and Markle were also seen on stage at the event, chatting with Costner before he took to the microphone to address the audience.
“Good evening everyone,” the “Yellowstone” star said. “I get a lot of questions from my friends who have no manners… ‘How, what does this place cost, what is it worth?’ I can simply tell you on a day like this, it’s worth every penny.
Costner was recently engaged in a bitter divorce battle with his estranged wife, Christina Baumgartner.
Earlier this week, The star settled the controversial court case with his ex-wife, Agreeing to pay more money than initially stated in the prenuptial application.
Costner made no reference to his highly publicized divorce, instead praising Santa Barbara County first responders.
