Woah! Meghan Markle‘s man and her ex-husband could be literally be twins. Though the 36-year-old actress is now happily engaged to Prince Harry, many of Meghan’s fans are pointing out her former hubby, Trevor Engelson, looks just like her royal love. Seriously… how did we not notice this before?! The Suits star and Trevor — who began dating in 2004 — previously tied the knot in Jamaica in September 2011. Meghan and the film producer, 40, later split in May 2013 after less than two years of marriage and finalized their divorce that August.

And now, he’s reportedly working on a show about a woman who left her husband for a prince (sound familiar?). The pitch for the show read, “Divorce is hard. Sharing custody is harder. Sharing custody with the British royal family when your wife marries a prince, in the unforgiving spotlight of London’s tabloid media, is next level.” We wonder if Harry and Meghan will binge-watch…
Harry, 33, and Meghan reportedly began dating in August 2016 and the royal publicly confirmed their relationship in early November 2016. Unfortunately, Harry was forced to acknowledge their romance because he was concerned about the “abuse and harassment” Meghan was receiving from the media.

“[Harry] is aware that there is significant curiosity about his private life. He has never been comfortable with this, but he has tried to develop a thick skin about the level of media interest that comes with it,” the message released by Harry’s communications secretary said at the time. “Harry is worried about Ms. Markle’s safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her. It is not right that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm. He knows commentators will say this is ‘the price she has to pay’ and that ‘this is all part of the game.’ He strongly disagrees. This is not a game — it is her life and his.”
Meghan and Harry recently made their first public appearance together at the Invictus Games in September 2017. And on Monday, Nov. 27, the couple officially announced their royal engagement to the world! “His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle. The wedding will take place in Spring 2018,” read a statement from Harry’s father Prince Charles. “His Royal Highness and Ms. Markle became engaged in London earlier this month. Prince Harry has informed Her Majesty The Queen and other close members of his family. Prince Harry has also sought and received the blessing of Ms. Markle’s parents. The couple will live in Nottingham Cottage in Kensington Palace.” We can’t wait for their wedding!
