Following the announcement that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are now engaged, a former friend of the American actress has decided to slam her, and the accusations are pretty scandalous! According to new reports, the pal who was close to Meghan from when they were kids all the way through the Suit star’s first marriage, Ninaki Priddy, admitted that they are no longer on speaking terms.
The woman, who also acted as Markle’s maid of honor, claimed that they had a fallout when she voiced her disapproval regarding the way she split from first husband, Trevor Engelson.
‘The girl I knew isn’t there anymore. Meghan used to tell me she could not imagine a life without Trevor. She said that if anything were to happen to him, she would not be able to go on. He cherished her as well. You should’ve seen the way he used to hold her face in his hands….It was such a shock when she told me they were getting divorced. After three seasons of Suits, she called me and said she wanted me to know before it was going to come out in the papers,’ Priddy dished.
Even though the old friend tried to be as subtle as possible, it is pretty clear she suggested that Meghan changed a lot after getting the Suits gig and that was what ultimately ruined her marriage to Engelson.
Her traveling caused her to start forgetting about him and eventually, the feelings were gone on her part.
The insider added that the man was really ‘hurt.’
Besides, the former pal said Markle was always ‘calculated’ when interacting with people because all she wanted was to be famous.
Before she met Harry, Priddy noticed that the Suits actress had a book about Princess Diana on her bookshelf.
Apparently, she had an unhealthy fascination with England and the royal family, and she even wanted to stay in London for a whole month during a time she was still married, instead of spending that free time with Engelson.
Priddy claimed Markle was a big fan of The Princess Diaries as well – movies all about a commoner becoming a royal!
