Meghan Markle has reportedly persuaded her ex-husband to pull the plug on an 'embarrassing' TV show based on her relationship with Prince Harry.

According to The Sun close friends of the bride-to-be held a meeting with Trevor Engelson in a bid to dissuade him from developing the TV series that he had been working on with Fox.

Engelson was reportedly working on a new sitcom show about a divorced American mother who moves to London to marry a British royal. 

An unnamed TV executive told the Sun Online: 'Trevor’s project is currently on hold after several months of anguish for Meghan.

'She reached out to him at first through friends and now they have kept up the pressure and Trevor has pushed things back.'

MailOnline has contacted Fox for a comment.

While some parallels can be found, Trevor claims that the characters have nothing to do with his relationship with Meghan.

Trevor is thought to have mentored Meghan when she first entered the film industry and was responsible for her cameo in the Robert Pattinson film Remember Me in 2010. They dated for seven years before tying the knot.

Meghan and Trevor got married on September 10, 2011 at the Jamaica Inn in Ocho Rios, Jamaica from which pictures have been shared of the four-day celebration.

Citing ‘irreconcilable differences’, Meghan and Trevor separated two years after their wedding and were divorced by August 2013. However, a source claimed that the separation was due to the soon-to-be Royal’s new role on Suits.

‘Meghan landed her role in Suits just a few months before they married. And despite being together for six years before getting hitched, things started to fall apart not long after the wedding,’ the source revealed.

They continued: ‘They really battled with long distances. Trevor was based in LA while Meghan was in Toronto, a five-hour flight away. It was a very difficult way to start married life’.

Royal biographer Andrew Morton’s new book Meghan, A Hollywood Princess revealed that the couple split because she started to land roles.
