'Markle Bashir': Candace Owens compares Meghan Markle to Martin Bashir for 'manipulating' Prince Harry
STAMFORD, CONNECTICUT: As people continue to both praise and criticize Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's recently released Netflix docuseries 'Harry & Meghan', conservative author Candace Owens compared Meghan to former BBC journalist Martin Bashir.
The last three episodes of the ex-royal couple's six-part documentary are scheduled to air on December 15, and it is anticipated that they will discuss their choice to resign from their positions as senior royals and their permanent move to America in greater detail. While the pair has criticized the royal family in the first three episodes, it is anticipated that they will up the ante, as per the second trailer released on Monday, December 12, as per Newsweek.

One of the most explosive scenes in the trailer is when Harry says, "They were happy to lie to protect my brother but were never willing to tell the truth to protect us," as clips of Harry and Meghan receiving bad press are displayed as a picture of Buckingham Palace appears on the screen.
The trailer doesn't go into detail about the possible lies the prince may be alluding to, but it outraged British media personality Piers Morgan, a longtime critic of the pair. "Imagine being the Royal Family still grieving the loss of your great Matriarch just a few weeks ago, and now having to endure two relatives who deserted royal duty & Britain for riches in America, publicly trashing you as racists & liars week after week? It’s so disgusting," he tweeted. Agreeing with Morgan on the matter, Owens responded to Morgan's tweet, "Manipulating a royal to trash talk his/her own family for television views—This is why I refer to Meghan as Markle Bashir."

Bashir rose to fame when he interviewed the late Princess Diana for BBC, who made the unforgettable statement, "There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded," in reference to her husband King Charles III's relationship with Camilla Parker-Bowles. Since it broadcast, the interview, titled 'An Interview with HRH The Princess of Wales', has drawn attention for both its substance and Bashir's methods for getting close to Diana, which were later revealed to have involved fabricating remarks and documents. The channel later apologized to William and Harry, as well as to Diana's brother, Earl Spencer.
After the first part of the docuseries 'Harry & Meghan' aired on December 8, UK-based journalist Kirsty McCormack tweeted her sympathy for Harry as she wrote, "If you watch the first episode of #HarryandMeghanNetflix and feel nothing for Harry and his situation, then you have a heart of stone. He lost his mother at the age of 12, no wonder he is so protective of Meghan and his kids. Just heartbreaking." Owens shared a different opinion when she quoted McCormack's tweet and wrote, "I feel extreme compassion for Harry who is with a woman that is so manipulative that she has convinced him that she is Princess Diana reincarnated. It is disturbing to watch this Freudian transfer. Meghan is using Harry’s very real childhood trauma to mentally abuse him."
