Meghan Markle is a 'witch' who has put Prince Harry 'under her spell', says Candace Owens
The 30-year-old political activist also slammed the royal couple for "using African children as a backdrop" to complain about their "over-privileged life"
Conservative commentator and political activist Candace Owens, who is known or her pro-Trump activism, tweeted on Monday, October 21, calling Meghan Markle a "witch" who had put a "spell" on Prince Harry.
The 30-year-old former Turning Point USA member took to social media and told her 1.7 million followers that she did not approve of the rhetoric used by the Royal couple during their 10-day South Africa tour.
"Using African children as a backdrop to complain about your over-privileged life is offensive," Candace said of the Duchess of Sussex. Next, she turned her wrath toward the Duke, commenting, "Invoking your own mother's tragic death to demand the press stop calling out your hypocritical wife is downright disgusting."
She concluded her tweet with a scathing remark. "Meghan Markle is a witch. Harry is under her spell," she wrote.
The comments came a day after the ITV documentary, "Harry & Meghan: An African Journey" released, which saw both Meghan and Harry recalling their own struggles to deal with the daily scrutiny of the British press, that is obsessed with the Royal family.
While the American-born duchess recalled her friends in England warning her not to get married to her husband because of the pressure she will have to deal with from the tabloids, she said she did not heed their concerns because as an American she didn't understand how the British press worked.
"I never thought this would be easy, but I thought it would be fair. And that is the part that is hard to reconcile," she said. "But (I) just take each day as it comes."
Harry, on the other hand, accused the press of driving his mother to death in 1997, when Princess Diana, who died in a car crash trying to elude paparazzi.
"I will not be bullied into playing a game that killed my mom. Part of this job, and part of any job, like everybody, is putting on a brave face and turning a cheek to a lot of the stuff. But again, for me and again for my wife, of course, there is a lot of stuff that hurts, especially when the majority of it is untrue," he said, explaining why he was extra-defensive of Meghan.
