Thomas recalled seeing the couple at his and Meghan’s grandmother Doris’ funeral. He told royal biographer Andrew Morton: “She was completely head over heels and seemed really happy when I saw them together, despite the sad circumstances. They seemed extremely happy together.”

Trevor, a Hollywood producer and agent, met Meghan back in 2004 and the couple lived together in Los Angeles.

They tied the knot in 2011 at a beautiful wedding in Jamaica with their friends and family.

It was around this time that Meghan’s paternal grandmother Doris was unwell, and Meghan frequently visited her before she sadly died that year.

Her funeral was the first time several of the Markle family had met Trevor.

However, the couple’s wedding coincided with Meghan moving to Toronto to film Suits, which she starred in for seven seasons.

The distance, as well as their opposing personalities, eventually wore them down and they divorced in 2013.

Meghan reportedly sent her rings back to Trevor in the post.

Despite his earlier comments about the couple seeming very happy at the funeral, Thomas admitted in an interview this year that, even then, he had some reservations about the relationship.

He told Express.co.uk: “I met Trevor two or three times before my grandmother’s funeral ‒ he’s a really good guy, really nice guy.

“But then at my grandmother’s funeral I saw this side of Meghan, like scowling at him and him cowering like a puppy dog and doing what he’s told.

“And really just treating him like… and he worshipped the ground she walked on.”

Despite their near decade-long relationship and Meghan’s rise to royal stardom, Trevor has never spoken to the press about her.

However, according to Mr Morton’s 2018 biography ‘Meghan: A Hollywood Princess’, he had been shocked by the break-up and still felt bitterly about it after five years.

One of Meghan’s oldest friends, Ninaki Priddy reportedly told writer Rebecca Hardy: “It was such a surprise for Trevor that even at a distance of five years, he can barely contain his anger.

“The normally affable laid-back New Yorker switching gear from his usual ‘hi bro, how’s it going?’ to a cold fury when her name comes into the conversation.”

This is backed up by Thomas’ claim that Trevor told him never to mention Meghan’s name to him.

He told Express.co.uk: “I even talked to Trevor a couple of times on a project I was trying to put together and he said ‘I’ll talk to you, but don’t ever mention her name because I’ll hang up on you. I don’t want to hear her name. Period.’”

Thomas added that he could not understand the break-up, because Trevor was a man “who would have given her everything”.

He claimed Trevor had “plenty of money”, a successful production company and treated Meghan well.

After the divorce, Meghan dated restauranter Cory Vitiello for two years before meeting Prince Harry in London in 2016.

Meghan and Harry had their fairytale wedding in 2018, had their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor in 2019 and at the beginning of this year stepped down as senior royals.

Meanwhile, Trevor married dietician Tracey Kurland in California last year.
