Meghan’s ex plans a right royal TV rib­bing

MEGHAN Markle fears her ex hus­band will mock her royal ro­mance with Prince Harry in a TV com­edy.

The US ac­tress’ for­mer fella Trevor En­gel­son is work­ing on a show for Fox about the monar­chy.

A friend who works out with Meghan at Pi­lates Plat­inum in Los An­ge­les claims the beauty is des­per­ately wor­ried about the “sig­nals” the pro­gramme will send to the roy­als.

En­gel­son, who was mar­ried to the Suits ac­tress from 2011 to 2013, is work­ing on a pi­lot about a fic­tional di­vorcee who re­mar­ries a Bri­tish prince.

Last night Meg’s pal said: “She will find this all very up­set­ting, given how fiercely pro­tec­tive she is of her pri­vate life and her past.

“The un­der­stand­ing was that ev­ery­thing was cool with Trevor. They had their mar­riage, it didn’t work out and now they were both mov­ing on with their lives.

“But this will be deeply up­set­ting and un­com­fort­able know­ing how she has been ‘monk-like’ around friends about what is hap­pen­ing with Harry.

“She un­der­stands the weird and un­usual po­si­tion she is in, and has made a con­scious ef­fort not to jeop­ar­dise their ro­mance with any kind of gos­sip. For her ex to be mak­ing a show about a di­vorcee linked to the Bri­tish roy­als is just an em­bar­rass­ment. “She will feel hurt by this, and have con­cerns about what the royal fam­ily may say. She will have had noth­ing to do with this at all.”

The source added: “Meghan has done her best to act de­mure and re­spon­si­ble given Harry’s po­si­tion – and we all think she has done a good job.

“For her ex to do this is seen by us as a jerk move, seem­ingly cash­ing in on her new life.

“This will bring her months of mis­ery and up­set, for no good rea­son.” Trevor, 40, has re­fused pub­licly to dis­cuss his ex-wife, who has been dat­ing Harry, 33, for the last year.

US Hol­ly­wood site Dead­line re­ported that the new show is “in­spired’ by his own for­mer mar­riage.

Trevor will work with pro­duc­ers Jake Kas­dan of New Girl, Dan Farah of The Shan­nara Chron­i­cles, and exec pro­ducer Danny Zuker, the man be­hind Mod­ern Fam­ily, on the still un­ti­tled project. Ear­lier this month Meghan, 36, told Van­ity Fair that she and Harry are “re­ally happy and in love”.
