First post-biography appearance: Harry and Meghan back in the spotlight

The buzz is immense as Prince Harry releases his memoir. After that, however, it will be quiet for him and his wife Meghan. Now the couple is returning to the public. The occasion is a birthday, which promptly mutates into a wedding ceremony.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have been seen together in public for the first time since the publication of Harry's controversial memoir "Reserve" (original title "Spare"). The two were present at the celebration of Portia de Rossi's 50th birthday, which later surprisingly turned into a wedding ceremony, where de Rossi and wife Ellen DeGeneres renewed their wedding vows.

Harry and Meghan, who live in the immediate vicinity of the well-known ex-talk presenter DeGeneres and her partner in Montecito, California, can be seen in a video of the ceremony on the YouTube channel "TheEllenShow". Kris Jenner, also a longtime friend of DeGeneres and de Rossi, married the two, who have been officially married since 2008. Afterwards, the guests present applauded, among them, in addition to Harry and Meghan, stars such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom.

De Rossi had surprised her partner during her birthday party by wanting to say yes again. She approached the visibly overwhelmed DeGeneres in her original wedding dress. Musician Brandi Carlile accompanied the whole thing live with a soulful song on the acoustic guitar.

De Rossi assured her wife that she didn't have to say anything about the surprise. She just wanted to remind the former talk show host that she was the most important thing in her world. This makes her milestone birthday "really special", according to de Rossi. "I'll always love you. It's such an honor to be your wife," she concluded, before the couple kissed to thunderous applause from the guests.

With a view to Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, Ellen DeGeneres came out as a fan a few years ago. In 2019 she even met the two privately in London and met her now three-year-old son Archie. In November 2021, Meghan made a surprise appearance on the DeGeneres talk show, which was canceled in May 2022 after 19 seasons.

After Prince Harry published his autobiography "Reserve" in early January, the son of King Charles III. one negative headline after another. In the controversial book he writes about his views on the British royal family, his life and his role as a substitute heir to the throne. The British royals don't do well in this.

While Harry gave several TV interviews both before and after the release, his wife Meghan has not been heard from since. According to several media reports, she should distance herself from Harry's autobiography.
