A cold ending?
In his book, Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, royal biographer Andrew Morton revealed what led to the breakup of Meghan Markle and Trevor Engelson. According to him, the whole divorce happened suddenly, and Trevor did not see it coming.
Meghan broke things off in 2013, after two years of marriage, the author revealed:
Trevor went from cherishing Meghan to, as one friend observed, 'feeling like he was a piece of something stuck to the bottom of her shoe.'
Morton also wrote that the whole thing ended so abruptly that Meghan returned the wedding and the engagement rings back to Trevor via registered post. A friend of the couple confirmed to the author that the decision to end the marriage was made by Meghan and came "out of the blue."
The couple allegedly drifted apart mostly due to the distance and the difference of their career levels. At the time, Meghan was spending a lot of her time filming Suits. while Trevor was struggling to make his own name in Hollywood. Morton said:
While she saw her star rising, her husband’s career was treading water. With no new projects in sight and with Suits on hiatus, Trevor took Meghan on a cycling vacation to Vietnam. It didn’t help that he became sick with food poisoning. Their escape to exotic locales, which once provided a backdrop for their love, only served to highlight the distance between them.
Trevor has apparently moved on
In the book, Morton suggested that the Duchess' ex was still angry at her for giving up on their marriage. However, the recent reports prove that he has now moved on and is building a life with someone else.
The Daily Mail reported that Trevor Engelson married nutritionist Tracey Kurland, who happens to be the daughter of a multi-millionaire banker. The couple tied the knot at a quiet ceremony this past weekend.
Trevor proposed to Tracey in June, two weeks after his ex-wife got married to Prince Harry in a widely publicized royal wedding. Looks like former spouses both got their 'happily ever after'.
