A source said that their long-distance relationship (she was filming Suits in Toronto) didn’t work for Markle and Engelson, explaining:

In late 2016, Markle started dating Prince Harry. Later, the Royal wedding between Meghan and Prince Harry took place in Windsor on May 19, 2018.
One of Engelson’s friends confessed:
“Meghan broke Trevor’s heart, pure and simple. He is still in love with her and so the revelation of her new relationship with Harry has hit him hard.”
He also said:
“Trevor was devastated at the split. She suddenly had no more time for him.”
Engelson’s maternal uncle, Mickey Miles Felton, said when Markle started the divorce process:
”It was definitely [Markle’s] loss, but, hey, who knows what makes someone happy?”
Mickey Miles Felton continued:
”But Trevor is a strong kid, and he’s a good man, and he’ll deal with it in his own way.’”
According to Andrew Morton’s book – “Meghan, A Hollywood Princess”:
“A wealthy entrepreneur friend claimed the marriage ended so abruptly that Meghan sent her wedding and engagement rings back to Trevor by registered post.”
After losing Markle, Trevor had dated Charlotte McKinney, an American actress and model, who was Maxim’s Instagram Girl of the Week in November of 2014.
In addition, Charlotte was named a competitor on season 20 of the television show – ”Dancing with the Stars.”
After his divorce from Meghan, Trevor also dated Bethenny Frankel, an American author, entrepreneur, and reality television personality, who gained fame after being cast on the Bravo reality TV series – ”The Real Housewives of New York City.”
In addition, Frankel was a contestant on the reality television game show, named – ”The Apprentice: Martha Stewart.” Furthermore, Bethenny is the founder of Skinnygirl Cocktails.
“I met him in Chicago and we were supposed to go out, and I ended up seeing him one time and he’d been texting me. He’s a producer in L.A. He told me that he was married before.”
”He’s divorced [now]. He was married to this girl named Meghan Markle from the TV show Suits.”
In the present day, their relationship is strictly business. She detailed:
“He looks a little bit like my ex, which scares me. We bypassed the romantics and went into the business.”
Bethenny went on to say:
”But I don’t know there’s something there. There’s something salacious about doing a TV project with Meghan Markle’s ex.”
Frankel also said she reached out to Trevor when Meghan went public with her engagement to Prince Harry. She said:
“I’m like, ‘Holy s###, your ex is going to be a princess!’”
In a recent tweet, Bethenny wrote about her relationship with Trevor:
“Never dated. Met. But I guess we’re not going to let the truth get in the way of a good story.”
She also wrote:
”While we’re at it, I was engaged to one of the Hemsworth brothers but he wasn’t good looking enough for me.”
Just after 14 days of Markle’s Royal wedding, Trevor got engaged to Tracy Kurland, a nutrition and health expert.
In 2008, Tracey graduated from the University of Southern California in LA. In 2014, Kurland completed her master of science in nutrition education at the Teachers College of Columbia University. Since January 2015, Tracey has worked as a registered dietitian at The Renfrew Center in LA.
The couple married on May 11, 2019, in a small, intimate ceremony in Hidden Hills, California. One guest said:
