Meghan Markle’s ex Trevor Engelson marries heiress

Duchess of Sussex’s former husband wed nutritionist Tracey Kurland in Los Angeles

Meghan Markle’s ex-husband, Trevor Engelson, has married his heiress fiancee in a low-key ceremony in Los Angeles, according to reports.

The 41-year-old American film director tied the knot with 32-year-old Tracey Kurland - whose banker father is worth an estimated $200m (£150m) - in California’s Hidden Hills on Saturday, says the Daily Mail.

Images posted on social media “appear to show the pair stood together, with her in a white off the shoulder dress and him in a blue suit with a light pink shirt”, says the London Evening Standard.

The caption on one of the photographs said: “Spying on the cutest bride and groom.” 

The Mail reports that the ceremony was conducted at a private residence, in a wealthy neighbourhood that is also home to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

A guest told the newspaper: “The wedding seemed like a small, casual but intimate affair - a world away from Meghan’s huge marriage to Harry in England.”

In June 2018, just a few weeks after the royal wedding, The Sun on Sunday revealed that Engelson had proposed to Kurland.

Engelson posted photos on Instagram of the happy moment - with him on one knee and another of him looking up at his future bride.

Engelson first met former wife Markle in 2004. They “dated for seven years before tying the knot in 2011”, News Australia reports.

“More than 100 family and friends attended the Markle-Engelson bash in Jamaica and partied for four days enjoying local beer, rum punches and fun games of wheelbarrow races along the beach”, adds the site.
