At that point, a source said, “The ceremony was over very quickly, in about 15 minutes. Then everyone hit the dance floor. It seemed they all just wanted to party.”
Why did Trevor Engelson and Meghan Markle get divorced?
Trevor and Meghan pulled the plug on their marriage after almost 2 years of marriage in the year 2013. Their divorce got finalized in 2014. At that time, like most couples, they cited, “irreconcilable differences” as the reason behind their split.
A source told Woman’s Day magazine, that Markle’s role as Rachel Zane in the legal drama television series Suits, was to blame. Then, a source said, “Meghan landed her role in Suits just a few months before they married. And despite being together for six years before getting hitched, things started to fall apart not long after the wedding.”
The insider went on to say, that a long-distance relationship didn’t work for Meghan and Trevor. The source further added, “They really battled with long distances. Trevor was based in LA while Meghan was in Toronto, a five-hour flight away. It was a very difficult way to start married life.”
In his new book, Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, royal biographer Andrew Morton spilled the beans on the life of the former Hollywood actress and stated that she posted back her wedding and engagement rings to Trevor after ending their marriage of 2 years “out of the blue”.
Back in June 2018, just a couple of weeks after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding, The Sun disclosed that Engelson had proposed to his girlfriend Tracey Kurland. As per various media outlets, then, Trevor had been dating the 31-year-old health and nutrition expert for at least a year.
