Meghan Markle will be braced for her ex-husband’s account in a new tell-all book – and is likely to find the prospect “terrifying”, a royal expert has said.
The Duchess of Sussex started dating Trevor Engelson in 2004, with the pair marrying for 18 months in 2011.
The couple divorced in 2013 – five years before Meghan started her new life with Prince Harry.
But Brit biographer Tom Bower is now expected to delve back into her time with Engelson, promising fresh interviews with the film producer in a new biography.
Commenting on the upcoming release, due in Autumn, Royal expert Neil Sean said: “This must be terrifying for Meghan Markle herself because obviously, they’ve got an axe to grind, some may say, but on the other side of the coin, they definitely want to get their side of the story out.
“This particular individual would truly have a remarkable story because, after all, he would have first-hand experience of what it was like, yes what it was like, to be married the first time around to the actress from Suits.”
It comes after Engelson, who is now also remarried, reportedly told a pal Meghan made him feel like “a piece of something stuck to the bottom of her shoe” by the end of their marriage.
However, Meghan and Trevor’s marriage was just two years long. The pair split up because of “irreconcilable differences.”
A multi-millionaire friend said the marriage ended so dramatically that Meghan returned her wedding and engagement rings back to Trevor via registered mail.
