Conservative commentator and political activist Candace Owens has lashed out at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, branding the former actress a "witch" after their explosive ITV documentary.
Meghan and Harry’s documentary, which aired on Sunday night, saw the couple opening up about the effects of public scrutiny and pressure from British tabloids.
The documentary was filmed while Harry and Meghan were on tour in Africa, and Owens seemed to imply that they exploited the plight of African kids.
"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."
"Using African children as a backdrop to complain about your over-privileged life is offensive," she tweeted before singling out Harry for allegedly comparing his mother Princess Diana’s tragic death to Meghan’s situation.
"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."
According to Daily Mail, Owens got married in August to British hedge funder and fellow conservative George Farmer.
On Sunday, viewers in the UK got to watch the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's ITV documentary "Harry & Meghan: An African Journey." In it, Meghan opened up about the pressures of negative coverage from British tabloids in the past year since she’s been married to Harry. The couple welcomed their son, Archie, in May.
In a clip of the interview published by Daily Mail, Meghan said:
"When I first met my now-husband, my friends were really happy because I was so happy, but my British friends said to me ‘I’ sure he’s great, but you shouldn’t do it ‘cause the British tabloids will destroy your life. And I very naively – I’m American, we don’t have that there – I didn’t get it. It’s been complicated."
"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 added, per the outlet. "But (I) just take each day as it comes."
Harry also expressed concern in the documentary that Meghan’s hounding from the press mirrors the travails of his late mother, who died in a 1997 car crash while trying to avoid paparazzi.
"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," the Duke admitted. "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."
Harry and Meghan’s documentary is now set to be broadcast across the world, according to a recent Daily Mail report.
While ABC has obtained rights to air it in the US, BBC Studios Lifestyle channel has done the same for Africa and Poland. Network 10 for Australia, TVNZ in New Zealand, TV2 for Denmark, RTL for the Netherlands, and Medialaan for Belgium.
