A new report has revealed the steely determination with which Meghan Markle is approaching her marriage to Prince Harry.
Relationship coach Sami Wunder has told The Express that the Duchess of Sussex was able to draw on some important lessons from her ill-fated 18-month marriage to first husband Trevor Engelson – and she’s determined to not make the same mistakes again.

“Meghan is not afraid to call the shots and make her own decisions, something many women with less experience would be afraid to do,” Wunder said.
Meghan’s relationship with film director Engelson is believed to have broken down in 2013 mainly because of their clashing work schedules and commitments, which forced them to live in two different countries.
“Just the fact that Meghan went on to date Prince Harry after her bad marriage to Trevor Engelson tells me that she is a woman who believes in love and in not giving up.
“Entering into a second marriage, I am confident she has come into it learning the bitter yet useful principles from a broken marriage and painful divorce.
“While there is no magic formula that can predict whether a second marriage will be successful or not, it is true that recovering from a first bad marriage can actually make you into a better, richer, wiser and more mature person.
“I believe this has been the case for Meghan.
“She knows what she wants - whether it’s deciding to live away from William and Kate in her own home or having her mother by her side during the birth of her son.
“Not only that, I believe that having navigated a bad divorce, Meghan cherishes and values the love and support she has found in Prince Harry and understands that marriage is not just about the glorious moments but also about embracing the imperfections, warts and all that come as a result of the union.
