Meghan Markle divorce from Trevor Engelson 'empowered' her, friend claims

Meghan Markle was previously married before she met and wed Prince Harry. Markle’s friend said her divorce from Trevor Engelson “empowered” her.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been married for two years already. But not everyone approved of their royal romance because she is a divorcee. But her failed marriage had a positive impact on Markle.

Meghan Markle empowered by divorce

Meghan Markle fell in love hard with producer Trevor Engelson years before she met Prince Harry. They got married but divorced in less than two years.

While others found themselves broken after getting a divorce, the incident reportedly empowered Markle, according to Abby Wathen.

“We both went through a divorce, so we bonded over that too,” Wathen said on ITV documentary Prince Harry and Meghan: Truly, Madly, Deeply, as quoted by Express.

“I was destroyed and she was empowered. She took her power back. It wasn’t the right relationship for her, so she moved on.”

Spotlight on: The Hubb Community Kitchen It was just one year ago that The Duchess of Sussex made a special visit to the women of The Hubb Community Kitchen to help prepare meals for those in need. The connection between The Duchess and these women began a year prior, as she supported them in the creation of “Together”, a charity cookbook which celebrates the power of cooking to bring communities together. The cookbook showcases recipes from women whose community was affected by the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire in London. Their incredible stories and personal recipes placed “Together” on The New York Times Bestseller List and The Sunday Times Booklist. Today, the women at the Hubb Community Kitchen continue to have a positive impact in their community, across the UK, and around the world. Whether it’s providing a safe space for women and children to come for a hot meal, supporting local schools, serving free lunches to senior citizens, partnering with the Red Cross to provide lunches for refugees, or feeding the homeless – the Hubb helps and heals through their support and sustenance. Thank you, ladies, for the leadership and inspiration that your cooking and love of community brings to all those around you. We remain so very proud of the good work that you continue to do, and cannot wait to see what 2020 brings! Photo © PA / Hubb Kitchen / Jenny Zarin

Meghan’s former BFF spoke about the divorce

Meghan Markle grew up with Ninaki Priddy. In fact, the two were childhood best friends. They were very close, but their friendship ended the moment Priddy learned how they separated.

Trevor Engelson was also furious with the way Markle ended their marriage. In fact, even five years after they divorced, he still couldn’t contain his anger when he hears Markle’s name.

Priddy decided to end her friendship with Markle when she heard Engelson’s side of the story.

“What came to light after Trevor and I spoke ended my friendship with Meghan. I think everybody who knew them both was in shock,” Priddy told The Sun.

“All I can say now is that I think Meghan was calculated, very calculated, in the way she handled people and relationships. She is very strategic in the way she cultivates circles of friends.”

How Meghan ended their marriage

Andrew Morton learned from the exes’ wealthy entrepreneur friend that their marriage ended abruptly. Markle reportedly sent her wedding and engagement rings to Engelson via registered post. Another source confirmed to Morton that Markle ended their marriage “totally out of the blue.”

Meanwhile, dating and relationship coach Sami Wunder also believed that Markle’s bad relationship made her a wiser woman. Markle marrying for the second time only showed that she believes in love and is not giving up on it.

She added that recovering from a bad marriage can make one better, richer, wiser, and more mature, and that’s the case for Markle.
