In a star-studded evening dedicated to supporting first responders, Kevin Costner's One805 Live! charity event illuminated the Santa Barbara skyline, with none other than Prince Harry and Meghan Markle gracing the occasion. Kevin Costner, the iconic actor and philanthropist, didn't waste a moment in sharing his appreciation for the royal duo's presence.

This past Friday, the 'Yellowstone' star took to Instagram to share glimpses of the memorable night. One couldn't miss the glowing captions that conveyed his heartfelt emotions. "Here's to an amazing weekend, everyone! Still, it’s a tall order to surpass the unforgettable moments from our previous weekend with @one805sb, championing our region's essential first responders," Costner penned.

The images showcased an array of moments from the event. In one, the Duke and Duchess of Suss*x could be discerned in the backdrop, attentively taking in Kevin's heartfelt address to the audience. But they weren’t the only high-profile attendees. The next photo flaunted a radiant ensemble with Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, and Portia de Rossi, beaming alongside the event’s host.

Continuing his tribute, Costner wrote, "These first responders have been our pillars through immensely challenging times. The evening was a testament to our community's unity and our collective gratitude for their relentless service."

The charity event was an epitome of glitz, glamour, and goodwill. Held at Costner's sprawling $26 million polo field in Santa Barbara, the setting was nothing short of regal. The Duke and Duchess, who've chosen Santa Barbara as their nest, arrived in style, mingling seamlessly with their illustrious neighbors and friends.

Such events not only serve as a fundraiser but also as a testament to the close-knit Santa Barbara community. The evening not only spotlighted the unwavering support of first responders but also highlighted the camaraderie shared by these global icons who call the coastal city home. With such fervor, it's evident that the One805 Live! charity event was more than just a night – it was a celebration of community, service, and solidarity.
