"He was genuinely blindsided," the source said.
The source went on to add that Meghan's move to deal with the divorce had 'crushed' him and that he was "crushed all over again" when she went public with her relationship with Prince Harry.
As per the insider it "took a while to recover" and said: "He's a good guy but Meghan crushed him when she demanded a divorce."
