Meghan Markle was the one that got away for her ex-husband, film producer Trevor Engelson, but he has moved on with the help of Baywatch star Charlotte McKinney and is now dating a dietitian.
Trevor, 41, and Meghan, 36, were married just two years before filing for divorce citing irreconcilable differences in 2013. However, he’s enjoyed two relationships since then, one with McKinney, and now he’s dating dietitian Tracey Kurland.
A source told The Sun, ‘The split with Meghan hit Trevor pretty hard. He went through a rough time during the break-up and that was only made worse when Meghan got together with Harry last year.’

It is unclear why Meghan and Trevor (pictured left in 2006) split, with the couple citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ in their divorce papers. Engelson was previously linked to Baywatch’s Charlotte McKinney (right)
‘He had to re-live it all again — this time in public. It wasn’t the most amicable of divorces and there were hurt feelings on both sides. Now he has bounced back and things are looking great for him,’ the source added.
‘He has a new woman in his life and his career is going from strength to strength.’
A little digging and it appears he has moved on with Tracey. A friend thanked the couple for hosting him in Los Angeles in December of 2016.
According to The Sun, they also took a vacation in Italy this summer.
Trevor and Meghan had lived in Los Angeles together after a whirlwind wedding weekend in Jamaica.
Meghan was just 23 when she met ex-husband Engelson in 2004, with the couple going on to date for six years before getting engaged in 2010.
The pair went on to marry in a Bohemian ceremony that lasted just 12 minutes in September 2011 at the ‘intimate’ Jamaica Inn in Ocho Rios.

But while the ceremony itself was short, Meghan’s first wedding celebrations lasted four days – with parties including drinking games on the beach during which the actress was pictured wearing a yellow bikini.

Once they settled in back in Los Angeles, she landed her breakthrough role as Rachel Zane in the drama Suits.
Her moving to Toronto for the role out a strain on their marriage.
Another pal told The Sun: ‘It was difficult with Meghan in Toronto. Some of their friends sided with Trevor afterwards.’
Speaking to DailyMail.com earlier this year, half-brother Thomas Markle Jr blamed the break-up on ‘the pressure of Hollywood’.
After their split, Meghan dated Canadian chef Cory Vitiello, before meeting Prince Harry last year.
Meghan and Harry went on to date quietly for six months before news of their relationship was revealed last November.
Trevor was briefly linked to actress Charlotte, 24, after his divorce from Meghan and posted a number of pictures of them together on Facebook.
Engelson, spotted Monday, is reportedly planning to develop a series about divorced American who marries a British royal – a storyline which is likely to have been inspired by Meghan’s own relationship
In August of 2014 he posted a steamy snap of her lying on his back, captioning it ‘Way out my league here, but loving it.’
After things fizzled out between Trevor and Charlotte, he was introduced to his current girlfriend, health and nutrition expert, Tracey through mutual friends.
In a small world of connections, Tracey interned at the fashion house Twelfth Street, which is popular with the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister Pippa Middleton.
Meanwhile Trevor has kept busy in his own work.
While he is yet to comment on his ex-wife’s royal romance but is reportedly working on a new TV show about a divorced American mother who moves to London to marry a British royal.
The show, which is currently untitled, was reportedly inspired by a conversation he had with producer Dan Farrah, musing on what would have happened if he and Meghan had had children together.
Happily ever after: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle finally announced their engagement after weeks of fevered speculation on Monday. The royal couple made their first public appearance hours after breaking the news in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace
