Meghan Markle's royal romance with Prince Harry appears to have inspired her ex-husband Trevor Engelson's new project. According to Deadline, the Suits star's former husband is producing a TV show based on an American divorced mother who moves to London to marry a British Prince.

The comedy will explore the difficulties of sharing custody with the royal family when your ex-wife is married to a Prince. While the upcoming Fox show is fictional, Deadline noted "it is fair to say that the show was inspired by real-life events." Meghan and Trevor, who do not share any children together, started dating in 2004 and were married in September 2011, but divorced two years later.

The show reportedly originated after Trevor had a conversation with fellow producer Dan Farah, musing what it would have been like if he and Meghan had had children together and he had to share custody with the royal family if she went on to marry a Prince.

Fox bought the comedy, with Modern Family executive producer Danny Zuker at the helm, and producers Trevor Engelson, Dan Farah and Jake Kasdan of New Girl fame all on board. The lead characters are not based on Meghan or Trevor and Prince Harry's girlfriend has had no involvement in the project.

The Hollywood actress began dating Queen Elizabeth's grandson last summer. The claims that a new royal TV show is in the making is likely to upset Meghan, who has made every effort to keep her relationship out of the public eye. She and Harry have only just made their first high-profile official appearance together, attending the opening ceremony of Harry's Invictus Games in Toronto over the weekend. However, the couple did their best to attract as little attention as possible, and were seated apart from each other.
