Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been married for five years. It was Harry’s first marriage, but Meghan was previously married to Trevor Engelson, a long time ago. Unfortunately, their marriage didn’t work out and ended badly.
Nowadays, both Meghan and Trevor are happily married to other people. Interestingly, Trevor has a lot of money, and his job might surprise you.
Recently, a friend of Trevor Engelson came forward and shared new information about him. At the start of Meghan Markle’s acting career, she met Trevor, her first husband. Trevor was born on October 23, 1976, in Great Neck, Long Island, New York, and went to the University of Southern California’s School of Communications.
He began as a production assistant in movies and worked his way up to becoming a film producer. Trevor has worked on various projects, including the 2010 movie Remember Me, which starred Robert Pattinson. Meghan Markle even had a small role in this movie early in her acting career.
Trevor Engelson has worked on several movies and TV shows like “License to Wed,” “All About Steve,” and the TV series “Heathers.” He’s been quite successful with the FX series “Snowfall,” which had its last season this year. He runs his own company, called Underground, in Beverly Hills, California.
When he’s not working on set, Trevor manages screenwriters, authors, actors, and directors in Los Angeles. Trevor and Meghan Markle first met in 2004 and dated for seven years before getting married in September 2011. Their wedding was a three-day event held at the Jamaica Inn in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. They had about 100 guests who enjoyed parties, beach games, brunches, and even a wheelbarrow race. The actual ceremony lasted only 15 minutes.
Meghan used to work on the TV show Deal or No Deal as one of the briefcase models. But her husband, Trevor Engelson, wasn’t too interested in visiting her on set. According to a book by author Andrew Morton called Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, Trevor was too busy with his work as a producer to visit Meghan during her breaks from filming.
Morton wrote that Trevor and Meghan were both very focused on their careers, with Trevor often being busier than Meghan. Unlike other husbands or boyfriends of the models on Deal or No Deal, Trevor didn’t come to visit Meghan on set. This was noticed by the other models. However, other celebrities, especially sports stars, did visit the set, some seeming interested in getting close to the models.
In 2011, the same year Meghan and Trevor got married, Meghan started working on the TV series Suits, which became a big hit. Shortly after, she moved to Toronto where the show was filmed.
Just before Meghan married Trevor, she got a role on a TV show. But since they lived far apart and had to take long flights to see each other, it made married life hard. They tried to stay connected through video calls, but it didn’t fix things.
Meghan once said she couldn’t imagine life without Trevor, but things changed when she started to see Toronto as her home more than LA.
Meghan worked on the TV show Suits for many episodes until 2018. But in 2013, she and Trevor divorced, saying they had “irreconcilable differences.”
Meghan’s half-brother Thomas said Trevor really loved her and was very hurt by the breakup. A friend of Trevor’s said he was devastated when Meghan stopped having time for him. He still loves her, and finding out about her new relationship with Harry was tough for him.
According to royal biographer Andrew Morton, the divorce was a shock for Trevor. He even said Meghan sent her engagement and wedding rings back to Trevor, which showed their marriage was over.
As Meghan started to feel more at home in Toronto than in LA, things changed in her relationship with Trevor. She became more independent, earning her own money and making new friends both at work and outside of it. She didn’t rely on her husband’s connections as much.
The breakup between Meghan and Trevor was pretty intense, according to Meghan’s childhood friend Nikki Priddy and author Lady Colin Campbell. In her book, Campbell said that after moving to Toronto, Meghan started hanging out with celebrities like stylist Jesica Mulroney, which made her drift apart from Trevor.
Campbell described Trevor as laid-back and Meghan as very organized and in control. While Trevor might show up late and a bit messy, Meghan was always perfectly put together.
After Meghan and Trevor split in 2013, Meghan became very successful, but Trevor mostly stayed out of the spotlight. He dated Bethenny Frankel from the Real Housewives of New York for a while after breaking up with Meghan.
In April 2018, during an interview on the Kyle and Jackie O Show in Australia, Bethenny Frankel talked about dating Trevor Engelson and knowing about his past relationship with Meghan.
She said she met Trevor in Chicago and they were supposed to go out. Trevor told her he had been married before to a girl named Meghan Markle from the TV show Suits. They focused more on their work together than on romance, but Bethenny felt there was still something intriguing about working with Meghan’s ex.
In 2017, it was reported that Trevor was going to co-produce a show about a man who shares custody of his child after his ex-wife marries a British prince. But the characters in the show weren’t based on Meghan or Trevor.
Trevor and Bethenny didn’t stay together, but Trevor eventually found love with Tracey Kurland. They got married on May 11, 2019, a little over a year after Harry and Meghan’s wedding.
Even though Harry and Meghan have made a lot of money from their deals with Netflix and from inheritances, Meghan’s ex-husband Trevor and his wife have much more money than they do.
Tracey Kurland’s father made a lot of money in the mortgage industry, about $500 million. Sadly, he passed away in 2021, and Tracey inherited around $250 million.
Meghan’s divorce from Trevor was really hard for him. They never talked much about what happened. But according to a friend of Trevor’s, Meghan’s ex-husband was really sad after the divorce. When Meghan started dating Prince Harry and all the news came out about their relationship and the Oprah interview, it made things even tougher for Trevor. But now, Trevor’s friend says he’s doing great.
Trevor is really happy now, especially because he loves being a dad. He talks a lot about how fulfilled he feels. Trevor’s friend says he’s moved on from Meghan and is living a better life now. He might even have more money than Meghan. Trevor and his wife live in a wealthy neighborhood in Los Angeles, and he’s really happy when he’s with his family.
