Too Ambitious! Meghan Markle’s University Boyfriend Dumped Her Because Of Her Bold Career Plans, Royal Author Claims

Date September 10, 2019

Meghan Markle was born to be famous. She started performing as a child and by her teen years, she knew what kind of career she wanted to have.

Some fans even think Markle as a teenager looked quite a lot like late American singer-songwriter, Selena Quintanilla.

However, Meghan’s career ambitions once ruined her relationship with one of the most-wanted guys in her college.

The rising basketball star

Meghan met the ‘chiseled’ basketball player Steve Lepore during her first year at Northwestern University. He was tall, handsome and popular, helping Markle to gain respect among her sorority sisters.

Royal author Andrew Morton writes in his book Meghan: A Hollywood Princess:

Her association with Lepore raised her stock with her Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority sisters, who were impressed that she had snared such a hottie.

But their romance didn’t mean to last. Lapore was transferred to a different university to have a chance of becoming a professional basketball player. But he couldn’t continue dating Meghan as she was ‘moving into a new world’ and needed a ‘popular’ guy who already ‘settled’ there.

We don’t know whether Steve has ever thought about Markle again, especially after she married Prince Harry. However, one of Meghan’s exes definitely couldn’t get her out of his mind, even at his bachelor party.

The Duchess’ former husband, Trevor Engelson, celebrated his up-coming wedding when one of his friends alluded to Meghan, toasting ‘royalty won, royalty lost.’

We hope that after getting married, Engelson will finally be able to let his past go.
