Prince Harry romanceSo this is awkward...

"Suits" actress Meghan Markle has been dating Prince Harry since the summer of 2016, but before that she was married to producer Trevor Engelson from 2011-2013. They had reportedly dated since 2004 before getting married, so it was a pretty long-term relationship.

Markle's romance with Prince Harry has made headlines around the world, and it looks like her ex is now capitalizing on that. According to Deadline, he's a producer behind a new single-camera comedy Fox has given a pilot commitment. The currently untitled comedy has the premise "Divorce is hard. Sharing custody is harder. Sharing custody with the British royal family when your wife marries a prince, in the unforgiving spotlight of London's tabloid media, is next level."

Sound a bit familiar?

The Hollywood Reporter's Annual Next Gen ReceptionThe comedy is reportedly fictional, and the lead characters are not based on Markle or Engelson, who have no kids together. But still. It's not like this is coming out of nowhere.

In fact, according to Deadline, the idea originated with Engelson and fellow producer Dan Farah, who wondered what it would've been like if Engelson and Markle had kids and he had to share custody with the British royal family. So they pitched it as a TV series. And Fox picked it up. Stay tuned for more details on production, casting, etc.

Meanwhile, Markle -- who still stars as Rachel Zane on USA's "Suits" -- recently opened up about her relationship with Prince Harry, telling Vanity Fair, "We're two people who are really happy and in love. We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people's perception. Nothing about me changed. I'm still the same person that I am, and I've never defined myself by my relationship."
