Meghan Markle reportedly asked her mom, Doria Ragland, to talk to her ex-husband, Trevor Engelson, regarding his television comedy project about their failed marriage.
The Sun’s executive editor Dan Wootton said that Markle was heavily opposed to the idea of Engelson creating a television show inspired by their failed marriage because it would mock her current relationship with Prince Harry.
“Fearing obvious comparisons to her marriage to Prince Harry, Meghan was heavily opposed to the comedy, especially as it planned to mock the royal romance on a weekly basis. Doria, who by all accounts is an adorable woman, is believed to have maintained a friendly relationship with Trevor – and her intervention seems to have worked… He ended up agreeing to drop the comedy altogether,” Wootton wrote.
Markle and Engelson were married for two years but their relationship ultimately ended in a divorce. In the book “Meghan: A Hollywood Princess,” royal author Andrew Morton said Markle dumped Engelson out of the blue. Following their split, the “Suits” alum returned her Wedding and engagement rings to her ex-husband via mail.
Last year, Engelson scored a deal with Fox to Studios to release the comedy, which was supposed to be indirectly about Markle, her failed marriage, and her royal life. However, the show did not push through. Engelson is now working as the executive producer of the FX series “Snowfall” and Netflix’s “13 Minutes.”
In October, Engelson tied the knot with dietician Tracey Kurland following their 5-month engagement.
In related news, Markle also made headlines this week after she was once again linked to Princess Diana. Clairvoyant Jayne Wallace said that Princess Diana would be involved in helping Markle try to keep motherhood as private as possible.
“Meghan is going through a tough time and does not have the energy she needs from her own family. But she is a very similar personality to Diana, who was strong and private and a good mom,” she told Express.
