Trevor Jed Engelson (born October 23, 1976) is an American film director, producer and talent agent.[1] He most notably produced the film Remember Me in 2010.[1] He is also known for being the first husband of Meghan Markle, who later became the Duchess of Sussex following her marriage to Prince Harry.

Early life and education[edit]

Engelson was born on October 23, 1976, in Great Neck, New York, the son of Leslie and David J. Engelson.[1] He is of Jewish ethnicity.[2] He attended John L. Miller Great Neck North High School and went on to study journalism at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.[2]


After attending USC, Engelson began a career as a production assistant and later moved into talent management before founding his own production company, Underground, in 2001.[2] As a producer, he has worked on several films and television shows. These include Remember Me, Outpost 37, License to Wed and All About Steve. He also produced the series Snowfall.[3] In 2018, it was announced that Engelson was to start work on an upcoming fictional drama on FOX about a British prince.[3]

Personal life[edit]

Engleson met and began dating Meghan Markle in 2004.[4] The couple married on September 10, 2011, at the Jamaica Inn in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. They separated approximately 18 months later, and were granted a no-fault divorce in August 2013, citing irreconcilable differences.[4] In November 2017, his former wife became engaged to Prince Harry, a grandson of Queen Elizabeth II. Engelson then attracted significant media attention due to his previous marriage to Markle.[5]

Following his divorce from Markle, Engelson dated Bethenny Frankel of The Real Housewives of New York City.[6] According to Frankel, their romantic relationship subsequently evolved into a business one.[6]

On June 1, 2018, Engelson became engaged to dietitian Tracey Kurland, after dating since November 2017.[7] They married on October 6, 2018.[8]
