Meghan Markle’s life changed forever when she started dating Prince Harry in the summer of 2016. While the world waits for the couple’s royal wedding this May, an inside source recently revealed that the Suits star started dating Harry before ending her relationship with ex-boyfriend Cory Vitiello.
A source told Life & Style that Markle and Vitiello had hit a rough patch in their relationship when she first met Harry. They hadn’t, however, officially called it quits. But that didn’t stop Markle from pursuing a relationship with Harry, leaving Vitiello wondering what was going on.
In fact, the insider says that Markle just stopped returning texts and calls from Vitiello and that a mutual friend broke the news to him.

Vitiello is a well-known chef in Toronto, where Markle lived and worked for the past seven years. He is also one of the founders of the Soho House branch in the city, where Markle and Harry recently stopped for a bite to eat.
“Cory is a founding member of Toronto’s Soho House,” an insider shared. “Meghan and Harry had dinner there in a private room once, and the staff and management were on the lookout for Cory at all times.”
Markle has not commented on her romance with Vitiello. The former actress is set to tie the knot with Prince Harry on May 19. Although Markle will begin a new career once she becomes a part of the royal family, she tried her hand in quite a few business ventures as an actress.
Back in 2012, Markle tried to trademark a brand that would sell drops and lollipops. The business never got off the ground but that didn’t stop Markle from trying her hand in other ventures.
Long before Prince Harry popped the big question, Markle launched her own blog, a fashion line, and dabbled in humanitarian work. Markle worked with women’s rights organizations, including One Young World, World Vision Canada and the United Nations.
Her charity work will likely continue after she becomes a part of the royal family, but her other interests will likely be abandoned.
Thank you so much for all of the wonderful comments following the release of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle's engagement photographs. The couple are so grateful for the warm and generous messages they have received during such a happy time in their lives. As a way to say thank you, they have decided to share this candid photograph from the day of their portrait sittings directly with all of you.
Markle announced her retirement from acting ahead of the Season 7 finale of Suits. She will also stop her personal blog and will probably setup a social media account through the royal family. In fact, pretty much everything Markle does from now on will run through several channels before it gets to the public.
As far as her humanity work is concerned, the actress should be able to double down on her efforts, as this will likely become a central part of her life moving forward.
Unfortunately, Markle’s dreams of making candy will probably never come to fruition. But with a royal wedding on the horizon, it’s safe to say that Meghan Markle is happy with how things have turned out. The same probably can’t be said of her poor ex-boyfriend, who was completely blindsided by her royal affair.
