2. Daughter of a multi-millionaire

Tracey is the daughter of Sheila and Stanford Kurland. Stanford was the second most senior executive at mortgage lender Countrywide. He left in 2006 and sold $200 million in stock options. In 2008, Countrywide merged with Bank of America during the financial crisis. The company was largely blamed for the mortgage debts that set off the housing market implosion. Kurland then co-founded Penny Mac, another mortgage lender after the financial crisis. He stepped down as its CEO in 2016.

3. The wedding

Few images of the wedding have surfaced on social media. The ones that have show Engelson in a gray-blue suit with a pink shirt. The bride wore an off-the-shoulder, knee-length white dress with a stack of gold bracelets. The reception was reportedly decorated with strings of Mexican paper banners hung across a swimming pool and featured a tequila bar. Engelson proposed to Kurland in Napa Valley in June, two weeks after Meghan Markle married Prince Harry. The producer announced the news on Instagram, although his account is private. "Luckiest guy I know! Get ready to party!" he wrote in a post.

4. Trevor and the Duchess of Sussex

By comparison, Engelson's 2011 wedding to Meghan Markle was a four-day destination wedding in Ocho Rios, Jamaica with 102 guests. The former couple met in 2004 before Meghan was famous for her role on Suits. They dated for six years before getting engaged in 2010. The four-day wedding celebration included a brunch, a cocktail party, a barbeque, and human wheelbarrow races along the beach. Their relationship faltered when Meghan moved to Toronto to film Suits while Engelson remained in Los Angeles. The distance took its toll. They separated in the summer of 2013.

5. Trevor's TV show

After Meghan became engaged to Prince Harry, Engelson began writing a television show about an American actress and the ex-wife of the show's protagonist marrying a Prince. However, Meghan's friends convinced him to abandon the project so that it did not upset Meghan and Harry.
