Meghan Markle decided to end her marriage with Trevor Engelson without warning leaving him angry, a report says.
Meghan Markle was so in love with Trevor Engelson, according to their common friends. So, they were as shocked as Engelson, when they learned that the two were divorcing.
Meghan Markle allegedly shocked ex-husband with their split
Meghan Markle and Trevor Engelson had an intimate wedding in Jamaica in 2011. Prior to their wedding, Markle was a struggling actress while he was already a producer. In her previous interviews, she shared how she attended auditions and why she accepted her role as one of the briefcase girls in Deal or No Deal. Apparently, Markel was financially tight at the time, so she grabbed any project that came her way.
However, she catapulted to fame when she starred as Rachel Zane on USA Network’s legal drama Suits. Their marriage became strained as Markle had to film in Toronto while her husband was based in California.
They had to live apart and spend most of their time separately. And Markle allegedly broke up with Engelson to his surprise. He could “barely contain his anger” at what she did, royal biographer Andrew Morton said in the book Meghan: A Hollywood Princess.
He allegedly went from cherishing Markle to “feeling like he was a piece of something stuck to the bottom of her shoe.”
Why did Meghan break up with Trevor?
Royal author Lady Colin Campbell shared her thoughts on why Meghan Markle’s first marriage didn’t work in her book Meghan and Harry: The Real Story. According to Campbell, Markle had begun hanging out with Toronto’s elite following the success of Suits. For instance, she befriended stylist Jessica Mulroney, whose husband, Ben Mulroney, is the eldest son of former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. That reportedly led her to distance herself from her husband because he was “embarrassing” her.
Campbell said the producer had always been laidback. Meanwhile, the former actress was controlling.
Also, Engelson would reportedly arrive for appointments slightly late and disheveled. Sometimes there may be a spot of food on his lapel and his shirt is sometimes out of his trousers. All of those things allegedly did not sit well with the actress-turned-duchess.
Markle and her childhood best friend, Nikki Priddy, also had a falling out after her split from Engelson. According to Priddy, after he heard both sides, she decided to side with Engelson.
Priddy felt that Markle had motives after finding a more classy circle of friends. “She did not wish to be bogged down with her embarrassing misfit of a husband or even her old and less Establishment circle of friends,” she said.
Markle married Prince Harry in 2018. Meanwhile, Engelson tied the knot with Californian heiress Tracey Kurland in 2019.
