Meghan Markle has been at the center of all sorts of controversies ever since she started dating Prince Harry. The former Hollywood star used to lead a quiet life in the United States while starring in Suits. But it didn’t take long for royal fans to find out that she was once married to Trevor Engelson.
Details about Meghan Markle and Engelson’s failed marriage made headlines before the Duke, and Duchess of Sussex tied the knot in 2018. There were also claims that Engelson could produce a show that’s inspired by his relationship with Markle. However, this was never released.
Tom Bower’s New Book Could Include An Interview With Meghan Markle’s Ex-Husband, Trevor Engelson
Now, royal expert Neil Sean claimed that royal fans might soon hear Engelson’s side because he could be one of the people that royal author Tom Bower interviewed for his book about Markle.
“As he [Tom Bower] said, you know, a lot of people were willing to go on record and speak, many without being paid, we might point out as well. This must be terrifying for Meghan Markle, herself because obviously, they've got an ax to grind, some may say, but on the other side of the coin, they definitely want to get their side of the story out,” Sean said (via Express).
He added that out of all the people that might have spoken with Bower, it is Engelson’s accounts those readers are most excited for. That is, if the producer really spoke to the royal author.
“But there was one person, of course, that everybody is now suspecting, and as ever we say allegedly here on the show, could have spoken to Tom. What I find fascinating about this is, that this particular individual would truly have a remarkable story because, after all, he would have first-hand experience of what it was like, yes what it was like, to be married the first time around to the actress from Suits. What I found particularly fascinating is Trevor's story, itself, is remarkable because he's never spoken on the record about his time with Meghan Markle,” Sean said.
Trevor Engelson Continues To Stay Mum About His Failed Marriage To Meghan Markle
Even though Engelson hasn’t confirmed or denied Sean’s claims, there are rumors that a huge chunk of Bower’s book revolves around Markle’s life while she was still married to her ex-husband.
But the royal expert also praised Engelson for keeping all the information that he knew about Markle private.
“It's strange isn't it because he could simply write his own check but it is nice to find, if this is true, a man with scruples who seemingly cannot be tempted to spill all,” he said.
Meghan Markle Decided To Divorce Trevor Engelson Without Warning
Meanwhile, there were previous reports claiming that Markle ended her marriage to Engelson without warning. And her decision even, reportedly, shocked her closest friends.
In the book Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, royal author Andrew Morton said that Markle and Engelson couldn’t be more different from one another. So, after just two years of marriage, the latter decided that it was time to call it quits.
“The sad news in the summer of 2013 came as a bolt from the blue. Everyone in the circle was genuinely shocked. None more so than Trevor's parents David and Leslie who, according to a member of the Markle clan, had embraced her like a daughter,” Morton wrote (via Express).
While speaking with Daily Mail, Markle’s former best friend, Ninaki Priddy, said that she didn’t see any signs that the couple was divorcing. After all, she knew that they had some fights and disagreements, but they were nothing major.
“The only obstacle was the distance because she was living in Toronto and Trevor was based in LA, but I thought they were maneuvering through it. Trevor would take his work to Canada to be with her and run his office remotely. It was such a surprise for Trevor that even at a distance of five years, he can barely contain his anger. The normally affable laid back New Yorker switching gear from his usual ‘hi bro, how’s it going?’ to a cold fury when her name comes into the conversation,” she said.
At the time, Priddy also accused Markle of cutting ties with anyone on a span of a finger and without any regrets. And this is, reportedly, what happened between them, as well as between Markle and Engelson.
