RIGHT-wing US activist Candace Owens has branded Meghan Markle a “witch” for “using African children as a backdrop” to moan about her privileged life.
Owens, 30, who is an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump, lashed out at the Duchess, 38, following the explosive ITV documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey.

In the doc, Meghan spoke candidly about her struggles with fame since she married into the British royal family while on her tour of southern Africa.
American activist Owens tweeted out her fury at the former Suits actress saying her comments were “offensive.”
She wrote: “Using African children as a backdrop to complain about your over-privileged life is offensive.”
The 30-year-old firebrand, who is married to a British hedge funder, also took aim at Prince Harry, 35, for comparing the intense media interest in his late-mother Diana to his own situation.
Owens tweeted: “Invoking your own mother’s tragic death to demand the press stop calling out your hypocritical wife is downright disgusting.”
But the American was not finished.
She ended her tweet with: “Meghan Markle is a witch. Harry is under her spell.”

In August, she married Brit financier George Farmer – the son of conservative peer Lord Farmer.
She is a vocal supporter of the Republican party and US President Trump.
In an Instagram post last week, she posted a picture of Trump, her new husband and herself.
Owens captioned the snap: “The only person I love more than the man on my left (Trump), is the man on my right (Farmer).”
Meghan appeared emotional during her interview with ITV’s Tom Bradby in Sunday’s doc.
Asked about the pressure of royal life, she said: “Look, any woman especially when they are pregnant you’re really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging, and then when you have a newborn – you know…
“And especially as a woman, it’s a lot. So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed it’s, well…
“And, also thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I’m OK. But it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”
Harry revealed he still feels the “festering wounds” left by his mother’s death and that he is constantly reminded of her during royal tours.
The dad-of-one was able to follow in her footsteps during the tour, as he worked with the charity HALO clearing landmines.
He said: “It’s been quite emotional retracing my mother’s steps, 22 years on. Let’s finish what was started.”
Following Prince Harry as he continued his mother’s work, Tom asked him if her death was still painful.
He asked: “Do you feel at peace in a way yet? Or is it still a sort of wound that festers?”
Revealing the emotional impact of Princess Diana’s death, even more than two decades later, Prince Harry said: “I think probably a wound that festers.
“I think being part of this family, in this role, in this job, every single time I see a camera, every single time I hear a click, every single time I see a flash it takes me straight back so in that respect it’s the worst reminder of her life as opposed to the best.
“Being here now 22 years later trying to finish what she started will be incredibly emotional but everything that I do reminds me of her.
“But as I said with the role, with the job, and the sort of pressures that come with that I get reminded of the bad stuff, unfortunately.”
