One of the controversial revelations stated in the royal biography is that Meghan Markle persuaded Prince Harry while living with her ex-boyfriend Cory Vitiello, according to Tom Bower’s new book, Revenge: Meghan, Harry, and the War Between the Windsors. The new book asserts that Meghan devised a plan to make friends with a group of powerful Brits in 2016, while she was working as an actor on the USA Network drama “Suits.” They included spokesperson for Ralph Lauren and Violet von Westenholz, an acquaintance from Harry’s youth.
Meghan was contracted to wear the designer’s outfit during Wimbledon in the summer of 2016. According to author Tom Bower, after a talk with Westenholz at Wimbledon, Meghan persuaded the “tender soul” Von Westenholz to arrange for her to go on a blind date with Harry, according to Page Six. Her issues—fear of loneliness and psychological and financial insecurity—were universal among unknown, unmarried actresses in their mid-thirties, according to Bower. It should come as no surprise that Meghan was focused on her own financial stability and finding a marriage. Before agreeing to the set-up, Westenholz allegedly gave Harry images of the actress with dark hair.
Who is Cory Vitiello?
Canadian of Italian descent, Vitiello is a chef and restaurateur. He is a well-known celebrity chef in his region and the director of culinary development at the Cactus Club Café. Meghan had been living together with Toronto-based chef Vitiello for two years when she first met Harry, but their relationship was ending. According to the book, “Harry surreptitiously traveled to Toronto” two weeks after their first date, which happened on July 1, 2016. He spent about a week at the home of a Meghan friend, most likely Jessica Mulroney. At the time, Meghan was still living with Vitiello.
Meghan was convinced that her spell had been cast and their relationship was doomed once Harry left for London at the conclusion of the week. According to Bower, she told Cory that their relationship was over. According to the book, Vitiello “was relieved. The months before had been terrible.
How did Cory Vitiello and Meghan Markle first connect?
It’s thought that Vitiello and Meghan initially spoke in 2014. The Daily Mail claims that the two got in touch when Meghan posted a positive review of his Toronto restaurant, The Harbord Room, on her now-defunct lifestyle blog, The Tig. Meghan and Vitiello were in a serious relationship. In 2015, she even spent Christmas with his family. Vitiello’s mother referred to Meghan as “a wonderful, charming woman,” who was also “very talented, caring, and smart.” She gives off a warm and real vibe. We enjoyed our conversation with her a lot. She fit right in with our family.
On the other side, Vitiello and Meghan broke up in 2016. According to Meghan’s contribution to the biography “Finding Freedom” by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, Vitiello and her split up due to differences in their levels of commitment. Meghan had acknowledged to friends that she regretted how quickly her connection with him had grown at the start of 2016. The fact that Meghan kept her rental house and didn’t move in with the chef made it very evident to some of her closest friends, according to the author. But it wasn’t until the first of May that they publicly called it quits on their two-year romance. Scobie and Durand wrote, “According to a source close to the couple, Cory’s unwillingness to settle down was the issue.
According to the other account of events, the two split up because of Harry. Meghan and Prince Harry travelled around Europe. The affair between the “Suit” actress and a royal family member garnered media attention when they returned from their visit. In the end, this led to Vitiello and Meghan breaking up.
But there is no animosity or bitterness between the former couple. Vitiello has only been supportive of Meghan’s friendship with Harry. It appears that as a consequence, Meghan and Vitiello are no longer at odds. Vitiello is in a relationship with Canadian singer Martina Sorbara, and the two of them have a three-year-old kid, however it is unknown whether they are married.
