The Duchess of Sussex was with Engleson for almost six years before the two decided to tie the knot in 2010. Interestingly, as per the Sun, the ceremony went on for about “15 minutes” only. However, the duo’s relationship soon hit the rocks.
The couple called it quit in 2013. While the reason behind the divorce is not yet clear, the couple apparently cited “irreconcilable differences” and went separate ways. Meanwhile, a source close to the matter shed some light on the topic.
