Royal competition: Meghan Markle’s ex marries heiress RICHER than Prince Harry
MEGHAN MARKLE’s ex-husband has enjoyed his own fairytale wedding, marrying his fiancée, who is worth even more than Prince Harry, in an intimate ceremony in California
Trevor Engelson, 41, who was married to the Duchess of Sussex for two years between September 2011 and August 2013, married nutritionist Tracey Kurland, 32, on Saturday night after only one year of dating.
The low-key ceremony took place at a private property in Hidden Hills, California, where Ms Kurland’s parents also live and A-list celebrities including Kim Kardashian and Kanye West reside.
One guest commented on the ceremony to DailyMailTV, saying: “The wedding seemed like a small, casual but intimate affair – a world away from Meghan’s huge marriage to Harry in England.
“The bride and groom looked so much in love and very happy together. The whole event was so them.”

Ms Kurland is an heiress to her father’s $200million (£152million) fortune, who made his money as a banker.
Mr Engelson and Ms Kurland began dating in November 2017, and the film producer popped the question just weeks after Meghan and Prince Harry married in their lavish ceremony in St George’s Chapel in May.
Meghan’s ex posted a photo on Instagram announcing his engagement, with a caption stating: “Luckiest guy I know. Get ready to party.”
Ms Kurland’s father made his fortune from selling $200million (£152million) in stock options after quitting as a senior executive at Countrywide, a mortgage lender, in 2006.
He also helped establish PennyMac, another mortgage lender, where he remained until he stood down as CEO in 2016.
Trevor and Meghan met in 2004, and dated for seven years before marrying in a relaxed ceremony at the Jamaica Inn in Ocho Rios, Jamaica on September 10 2011.
They separated only 18 months later, and were granted a no-fault divorce in August 2013.
The couple cited irreconcilable differences for the cause of their separation.
Meghan landed her starring role in the hit TV series Suits shortly before the couple’s wedding in 2011, and the Duchess’ move to Toronto reportedly put a strain on their relationship.
The Duchess subsequently dated celebrity chef and restauranteur Cory Vitiello for nearly two years while the actress lived in Toronto.
The relationship ended in May 2015 shortly before she started dating Prince Harry in June of the same year.
