Who is Meghan Markle’s ex-husband?
Trevor Engelson was born on October 23, 1976, in New York.
He began his career in the film industry as a production assistant, before working his way up the ladder.
Trevor is now a film producer and is most famous for the 9/11 romance movie Remember Me, starring Robert Pattinson.
He is also a manager for screenwriters, actors, novelists, and film directors in Los Angeles, California and was the executive producer on US TV shows Heathers and Snowfall.
When did Trevor Engelson and Meghan Markle get married?
Trevor met Meghan back in 2004 and began dating.
After being together for six years, they got engaged in 2010.
The pair tied the knot on September 10, 2011, at the Jamaica Inn in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
The wedding was a four-day affair and pictures have since shown drinking games on the beach in the run-up to the big day.
The ceremony took place in front of 102 guests.
One 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 and Meghan get divorced?
The couple separated just two years after their wedding and were divorced in August 2013, citing “irreconcilable differences”.
A source claimed to Woman’s Day magazine that Meghan’s role as Rachel Zane on hit TV show Suits was to blame.
The insider 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 source added that a long distance relationship didn’t work for Meghan and Trevor, adding: “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.”
Royal biographer Andrew Morton revealed in his new book, Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, the Suits actress posted back her wedding and engagement rings to Engelson after ending their marriage “out of the blue”.
In June 2018, just a few weeks after the Royal Wedding, The Sun on Sunday revealed how Engelson had proposed to his girlfriend Tracey Kurland.
Meghan’s ex has been dating the 31-year-old health and nutrition expert for at least a year.

In Instagram pictures the bride can be seen wearing an off-the-shoulder, midi-length white dress.
A close friend of Tracey’s told Fabulous Digital: “Tracey has been a breathe of fresh air in Trevor’s life and the two are blissfully in love.
“The name of Meghan never comes up in conversation when they are around friends and we all get the feeling neither are bothered about what happens in her life.”
Although Tracey’s friend claims that the newlyweds are “oblivious to what is going on with the Royals”.
They said that the California-based nutritionist “has been key in helping him recover” from the split.
