Candace Owens Blasts Meghan Markle for 'Using African Kids' - She 'is a WITCH'
Conservative firebrand shreds Prince Harry and 'over-privileged' wife over Africa trip
Conservative firebrand Candace Owens has lashed out at jet-setting British royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle over their recent trip to Africa, accusing the pair of "using African kids."
Political commentator Owens blasted Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, slamming her as "a witch" who has Harry "under her spell."
Owens was responding to comments from Markle after she spoke out about the "difficulties" she has faced over the past year due to her new jet-set lifestyle as a royal.
Owens, a proud supporter of President Donald Trump, took to social media on Monday to criticize the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to her 1.7 million followers.
"Using African children as a backdrop to complain about your over-privileged life is offensive," Owens said of the American-born member of the Royal Family.
She also shredded Prince Harry, saying: "Invoking your own mother's tragic death to demand the press stop calling out your hypocritical wife is downright disgusting."
According to the Daily Mail, Owens, who counts Kanye West among her supporters, lashed out at the royal couple following the airing of an ITV documentary that featured interviews with Harry and Meghan from their recent Southern Africa tour.
The conservative political activist is married to British hedge funder and fellow conservative George Farmer.
Her husband, who she married in August, is the son of UK conservative peer Lord Farmer.
In the ITV documentary - titled Harry & Meghan: An African Journey - Meghan said her first year of marriage to Harry had been difficult because of the pressure from Britain's tabloid press.

Invoking your own mother’s tragic death to demand the press stop calling out your hypocritical wife is downright disgusting.
Meghan Markle is a witch.
Harry is under her spell.
She said her British friends had warned her not to marry him because of the intense media scrutiny that would follow.
But the former actress said she "naively" dismissed the warnings 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."
Both Harry and Meghan said they had struggled with the spotlight, particularly because they say much of what is printed is untrue.
Harry has previously accused the media of hounding his wife the same way it did with his late mother, Princess Diana, who died in a 1997 car crash trying to elude paparazzi.
In the ITV interview, Harry said: "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."
