As Meghan Markle gets ready to tie the knot with Prince Harry, it’s been reported that her ex-husband Trevor Engelson may be jetting off to South America.

Prior to her relationship with Harry, Meghan was married to the Hollywood film producer from 2011 to 2013.

“Trevor is heading out of the country this weekend to escape the mania,” the insider said.

Meghan and Trevor met in 2004 and began dating that same year.

They got engaged in 2010 and tied the knot on September 10, 2011, in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

Their wedding was reportedly a four-day affair and the pair exchanged their vows in front of around 100 guests.

But, after just two years of marriage, Meghan and Trevor divorced in 2013.

Meghan and Trevor split in 2013 and were divorced in August that year.

The couple cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their separation.

According to an excerpt from Andrew Morton’s biography of Meghan, Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, a friend claimed Markle’s decision to end the marriage came “totally out of the blue.”

Just three years on, Meghan met Prince Harry.

The couple were introduced by a mutual friend in 2016.

In their first post-engagement interview with BBC News in November 2017, Meghan revealed she and Harry were set up on a “blind date” by their pal.

“It was definitely a set-up,” Markle said, laughing. “It was a blind date.”

Shortly after meeting for the first time, the couple had two dates, back to back, in London in July 2016.

Speaking in their post-engagement interview in November, Markle said: “I think very quickly into [meeting for the first time], we said, ‘Well, what are we doing tomorrow? We should meet again.’”

Weeks later, Meghan joined Harry in Botswana and they “camped out with each other under the stars.”

“She came and joined me for five days out there, which was absolutely fantastic,” Harry said. “Then we were really by ourselves, which was crucial to me to make sure that we had a chance to get to know each other.”

In November 2017, Harry proposed to the former Suits actress with a three-stone diamond ring that he designed himself.

The sparkler was designed by British Jewelers Cleave and Company and is made up of three diamonds – one large stone in the centre with two smaller stones on the sides.
