GETTYMeghan Markle's second wedding is on May 19
Andrew Morton revealed all about the star’s past - and how Trevor Engelson still goes into a “cold fury” at the mere mention of the actor’s name - in an extraordinary account.
Writing in ‘Meghan, A Hollywood Princess’ he said the Suits actress even took her kitchen blender back as her last marriage suddenly ended.
He wrote: “A wealthy entrepreneur friend claimed the marriage ended so abruptly that Meghan sent Trevor her diamond wedding and engagement rings back by registered mail.”
Of blender-gate, Mr Morton said: “She packed the blender into the backseat of her car even though it would have been just as easy to buy a new one.Related articles
“It sat on the kitchen counter of her Toronto house, a material reminder that her home was no longer in Los Angeles.”
Ms Markle, who married Mr Engelson in 2011, had been living apart from her then-husband since February 2013, as she moved from Los Angeles to Toronto, Canada, for a role in hit TV series, ‘Suits’.
Mr Engelson, 41, moved to New York to be nearer to Ms Markle - but work commitments were still too much.
Mr Morton said of the shock split: “It was such a surprise for Trevor that even at a distance of five years, he can barely contain his anger.

“The normally affable laid-back New Yorker switches gear from his usual, ‘Hi bro, how’s it going?’ to a cold fury when her name comes into the conversation.
“‘I have zero to say about her.’”
Mr Morton claimed Ms Markle’s interest had waxed and then waned towards Mr Engelson.
He added: “What once endeared now irritated.

“Meghan, a self-confessed perfectionist as fastidious as she was controlling, had tolerated Trevor’s scattered approach to life for years.
“He was notorious for arriving late, his clothes rumpled, his hair dishevelled, and often as not with a new stain on his jacket.
“‘Sorry bro,’ was a constant refrain as he hurtled from meeting to meeting, always just behind the clock.”
Meanwhile with Mr Engelson’s career stagnating and Ms Markle finding fame on her hit series, the star began to shift her focus from him.
