This reportedly led to Meghan wanting to distance herself from Engelson.
Author Lady Colin Campbell wrote in the book, “Trevor was always drawn back from where she controlled and controlled.” Meghan and Harry: The Real Story. “He was a little late and disorganized for appointments, with a spot of food from his trousers to his shirt and probably on his lapel, while the completely contained and self-sufficient Meghan always came out spotless.”
Lady Colin, citing Priddy in the description of Meghan and Engelson’s divorce, wrote, “After finding herself a new and more ‘classy’ circle of friends, according to Nikki’s interpretation of Meghan’s intentions, She didn’t want to be stuck with the shameful inappropriateness of a husband or even her establishment circle of older and lesser friends.”
