Just more than a month before Meghan Markle‘s royal wedding to Prince Harry, new details have been revealed about the actress’ first marriage to Hollywood producer Trevor Engelson. A new book written by famed Princess Diana biographer Andrew Morton has suggested that Meghan’s lead role on the USA legal drama Suits eventually led to the demise of her past marriage to Trevor.
When Meghan and Trevor met at a bar in 2004, the royal-to-be was an aspiring star who had just landed her first big gig as a briefcase girl on the popular game show Deal or No Deal, Morton’s book, Meghan, A Hollywood Princess, explained. At the time, Trevor was based in LA and Meghan was mostly working in NYC. When she nabbed the part of paralegal Rachel Zane on Suits, she moved to Toronto where the series was filmed.

In an excerpt obtained by The Sunday Times, Morton wrote that Meghan and Trevor thought the sacrifice of having a long-distance relationship “was going to be worth it.” But after the two tied the knot in Jamaica in September 2011, “cracks began to appear in their marriage,” according to Morton.
Just two years after Meghan and Trevor said “I Do,” the couple’s marriage sadly began to crumble. Morton wrote that Meghan was the person who actually wanted to end the marriage and the separation was “totally out of the blue” for Trevor. “[He] went from cherishing Meghan to, as one friend observed, ‘feeling like he was a piece of something stuck to the bottom of her shoe,'” the author explained.
Today, Meghan is happily engaged to Prince Harry and the pair is set to exchange vows at Windsor Castle’s St George’s Chapel on Saturday, May 19. Ever since their November 2017 engagement was announced to the world, lots of details have been released about Meghan and Harry’s upcoming big day — we can’t wait to see the royal-to-be in her stunning wedding dress in just a few weeks!
