For many years, Meghan Markle and her half-sister, Samantha Grant have not spoken to each other. And for good reason, the latter would be terribly angry with Prince Harry’s wife for no longer speaking to their father. However, that does not prevent him from defending her against her many detractors. While the ex-star of the Suits series is accused of taking advantage of her first husband, Trevor Engelson to boost her career, Samantha Grant confided in a special issue of Zone Forbidden: “God knows I am not defending her not, but the truth is, even though people say, ‘She used him,’ that’s not true. They were really good friends before they had a relationship. a love based on sincerity. They knew each other very well. He was starting out as a producer and he was very serious, very professional. I don’t think they were acting out of interest. ”
Long before marrying Prince Harry, Meghan Markle fell madly in love with producer Trevor Engelson in 2004. After seven years together, the couple said ‘yes’ to each other in Jamaica on August 16, 2011 before divorcing two years later. At the start of their relationship, the one who would become Duchess of Sussex struggled to find interesting roles. If she had landed a small role in the film Remember Me alongside Robert Pattinson, Andrew Morton said that her husband’s lack of will to help her in his career would have got the better of their relationship. So, while she landed the role of Rachel Zane in Suits, the distance as well as the recurring arguments will have got the better of their couple.
A toxic relationship
Asked for the purposes of the book Finding Freedom, a close friend of Meghan Markle confided that the producer did not appreciate the success of his wife, while his career was stagnating: “When they were together, Meghan wondered from her closest friends why Trevor was not showing more understanding to support her acting career. She felt like he liked her being dependent on him. That was the dynamic in their relationship, Trevor was the one who dominated. He was used to providing financial support, to being the one Meghan needed to meet people in the film industry. ”
