Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been seen together for the first time since his bombshell memoir Spare was published last month – celebrating the surprise vow renewal of their close friends and neighbors Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi. 

Ellen’s wife Portia threw a star-studded birthday party at their $70million Montecito mansion to celebrate turning 50 last week.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were seen whooping and cheering after Kris Jenner officiated the renewals, which surprised the former talk show host.

Harry and Meghan were at opposite ends of the group, which included Brandi Carlile, and other friends and family of the celebrity couple.

It is the first time that the couple has been seen together since appearing at the RFK Ripple of Hope Award in New York in December.

Meghan, 41, has been keeping an unsually low profile compared to her husband, who went on a whirlwind publication tour for his memoir Spare. 

Ellen, 65,  appeared stunned as Portia entered the room wearing a wedding dress – and called her wife the ‘greatest gift’ for the surprise.

The couple has been married since 2008 and recently moved into the new Montecito mansion, which is just a stone’s throw from the $14million home of Harry and Meghan.

The Suits actress’  close relationship with Ellen is not a secret – with the former royal appearing on the show in 2021.

She opened up about her life in California with Harry and their two children Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, as well as taking part in a cringe-worthy prank.

During her surprise appearance on the final season of Ellen’s talk show, the Duchess stepped outside the studio to pull a prank on a vendor trio.

It meant that she was forced to do and say whatever the talk show host told her to via a hidden earpiece.

Meghan approached the first vendor and began inspecting the crystals on their stall before Ellen instructed her to hold on to her head and begin groaning and moaning.

As part of the prank she was forced to swig from a baby bottle and meow like a cat in the toe-curling prank.

It comes after Prince Harry was confirmed as a guest speaker at an ‘immersive two-day summit’ for business leaders where tickets cost $995.

He will attend the event in Nob Hill, San Francisco, on March 7 and 8 in his role as Chief Impact Officer for BetterUp, who are playing host.

The summit, titled Uplift, has been billed as an event where business executives ‘can connect with industry icons, renowned researchers, and world-class coaches to share experiences, ideas, and inspiration needed to move their businesses forward.’

Although the Duke of Sussex has not yet officially been listed on the event’s agenda, he looks likely to be the event’s closing keynote speaker.

Prince Harry, who had vowed not to cash in on his royal credentials, was appointed as Chief Impact Officer for BetterUp in 2021.

Soon after his appointment, it was made clear that he would be allowed a full say in ‘strategic’ decisions as well as becoming a public face for the business.

In January the Duke appeared on a whole host of shows including 60 Minutes and Good Morning America as well as The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to promote the book.

But following its release the couple’s popularity was hit on both sides of the Atlantic.

Harry’s wife Meghan Markle had reportedly raised ‘gentle concerns’ about Harry’s decision to release Spare and was worried if it was the right move.

The 41-year-old is said to have expressed worries that the book could ruffle feathers.

The royal couple are known for putting on a united front, including during the incendiary interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021.

Harry was also in the audience with schoolchildren in New York when Meghan promoted her book, The Bench.

But as Harry released his explosive memoir, which slams his family and reveals that he killed 25 Taliban fighters, Meghan has been notably absent from any promotion or interviews.

Meghan was also notably absent from the birthday party of Oprah Winfrey – despite the pair being close friends and also neighbors. 

Some of the many A-listers in attendance included Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Sharon Stone, Rita Wilson, Sofia Vergara and Heidi Klum, among others.

Spare became the fastest-selling non-fiction book of all time on the day of its release earlier this month, topping sales charts around the world – including in the U.S., according to its publisher.

In it Harry made explosive revelations and allegations about members of his family, most noticeably his brother Prince William, rocking the House of Windsor.

It has also put in jeopardy the family’s chance to set aside their differences at the coronation of Prince Charles III later this year.

Imagine Harry and Meghan's pre-publication fantasies! Surely they imagined the world at their backs, outraged that Harry got the smaller bedroom at Balmoral and that Charles isn't much a hugger, doubtless agitating for the end of the monarchy while applauding Harry and Meghan for bearing such suffering so valiantly.

Prince Harry’s book, Spare, was released on January 10 and quickly became one of the fastest selling non-fiction books ever, but the fallout from the Duke’s book looks set to linger

In the memoir, Prince Harry alleged that his brother shoved him into a dog’s bowl during the heated row after he began dating Meghan, leaving it in ‘pieces’.

He claimed he could tell Prince William wanted him to hit him back, but he refused to do so. He added his brother later apologized. 

He also revealed personal details such as how he lost his virginity to an older woman in a field behind a pub.

In his new book, Harry claims members of the royal household regularly briefed to the press, including for negative articles about Meghan. 

Harry has been criticized for sharing private conversations in the book, and intimate details about his family members.

However, the prince claimed there are many other details he has chosen not to share because ‘I just don’t want the world to know’, adding his family might not ‘ever forgive’ him if he did so.

Harry has since challenged his family members to speak with him and apologize to Meghan, though it is not clear what for.
