    Commercializing the crown is what this woman is trying to do. Anything for money!
    She wants titles for the kids. But they are in America now and we don’t use titles. She has always been a money hungry social climber. She set her eyes on Harry when she realized she couldn’t become a big star, she was always a starlet. Mediocre Megan uses her husband to get into society and get access to places where she couldn’t have gain entrance before. Poor Harry married to that horrible manipulator!!!!
