And as many know, Meghan was married before she met Harry. The actress and producer/actor Trevor Engelson walked down the aisle together at a Jamaica ceremony in 2011. Then, after the pair divorced in 2013, Meghan dated renowned chef Cory Vitiello for close to two years. Her life would change forever, though, after a friend set her up on a blind date in 2016.
Why? Well, the man Meghan met was none other than the man then fifth in line to be the head of the Royal Family. Harry had had his own dating history before that point, though, having reportedly entered into a relationship with wealthy businessman’s daughter Chelsy Davy during his twenties. He also romanced heiress Cressida Bonas for two years before encountering his future wife.
Meghan and Harry’s subsequent relationship became public towards the end of 2016. But the news wasn’t well received by all, and so Harry was subsequently forced to issue a statement in response to the harassment and abuse his new girlfriend had received. Then Meghan professed her love for the prince to the media in September 2017, shortly before they made their official debut as a couple at the Toronto Invictus Games.
