Conservative commentator Candace Owens has lashed out at Meghan Markle during an interview with Sean Hannity Wednesday night, describing the Duchess as a ‘liar’ and a ‘narcissist’.
Owens told the Fox News anchor that Meghan ‘couldn’t keep her stories straight’ during her bombshell interview with Oprah last weekend.
‘She [Meghan] said she doesn’t read newspapers or check social media. That’s not true because she then said that she was suicidal because of bad press,’ Owens stated.
Owens also claimed that Meghan’s insinuation that her son, Archie, was not offered a title because of his skin tone were also untrue.
‘If you have seen a picture of Archie and you believe he suffered anti-black racism, then call me a Nigerian prince and give me your credit card,’ the outspoken pundit proclaimed.
Owens additionally mocked Meghan for putting in a complaint to British broadcaster ITV because she was upset with critical comments made by Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan.

Morgan – who is an outspoken critic of the Duchess – quit Good Morning Britain on Wednesday after he savaged Meghan and Harry’s two-hour sit down with Oprah
Morgan – who is an outspoken critic of the Duchess – quit the breakfast program on Wednesday after he savaged Meghan and Harry’s two-hour sit down with Oprah.
He refused to apologize for his strongly-held opinion that the Royal Couple had lied throughout their interview and had done untold damage to the Monarchy.
‘Piers Morgan was all of us when he was dressing down Meghan Markle and calling her out on the lies she’s told… To put in her phone call to have his voice silenced because she is unhappy with the press? She is a typical leftist narcissist,’ Owens raged.
She added: ‘He believes that Meghan Markle was lying. I agree with him. Why aren’t we allowed to have an opinion anymore? It’s dangerous.’
Earlier in the day, Owens also showed her support to another outspoken TV pundit who had been critical of Meghan Markle.
Owens took to Twitter to lavish praise on Tucker Carlson, who described the Duchess as a ‘manipulative opportunist’ in a broadcast on Tuesday.
‘Tucker always nails it. If you believe Meghan Markle is a victim, you’re an idiot. There’s really no other way to say it,’ she wrote.
‘Bad press over bridesmaid dresses does not make you want to kill yourself and your unborn child unless you are: A) Unstable B) Lying for sympathy C) Both.’
Tucker Carlson said on Tuesday night he had no interest in ‘Prince Whatever-His-Name’
Carlson described Harry as ‘weak and unhappy’ and Meghan ‘a manipulative opportunist’
Carlson mocked Meghan for bringing up a tearful row with Kate Middleton shortly before her wedding – something he ridiculed as ‘her 9/11’.
‘Here’s this royal person, one of the most famous and fawned-over people in the world telling Oprah that she was incredibly wounded because she got into some kind of petty argument about dresses with her sister-in-law at her wedding three years ago.’
Carlson mockingly referred to Meghan and Kate’s row about bridesmaids dresses as ‘her 9/11’
‘So stop the presses.
‘She and her sister-in-law had a tiff about clothes. That’s never happened before.
‘She thinks this is important to bring up in a television interview. It was her 9/11. So of course she considers it newsworthy.’
Carlson mockingly said that when she goes to the gym, ‘it is treated like the moon landing’.
And he ridiculed her for telling Winfrey that she felt stifled and trapped inside the Palace machine.
‘She’s actually an oppressed victim,’ he deadpanned.
‘She may look powerful but she’s powerless.’
In response to Markle saying she was silenced, Carlson told viewers: ‘A rational person might consider this claim absurd, but amazingly no one else seems to think it is. Oprah clearly doesn’t think it’s absurd.
‘You’re not allowed to make fun of this.
‘Our friend Piers Morgan did that on television in the UK and had to resign from his job.’
Carlson concluded that it was not just Markle, but a number of ‘powerful people decid[ing] that they are oppressed,’ and pointed to Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, and New York Times tech reporter Taylor Lorenz.

Carlson’s show aired just hours after it was revealed that Piers Morgan had quit his Good Morning Britain breakfast show amid the fallout from the extraordinary Oprah interview.
It has since been revealed that Meghan is understood to have gone directly to ITV’s CEO Dame Carolyn McCall, the former boss of the left-wing Guardian newspaper, to complain about Morgan.
The Duchess of Sussex insists she was not upset that Morgan said he ‘didn’t believe a word she said’ in her Oprah interview – but was worried about how his comments could affect people attempting to deal with their own mental health problems, an insider told the Press Association.
Morgan is understood to have been ordered to apologize but he refused and quit, saying he had the right to tell viewers his ‘honestly held opinions’ and declaring: ‘Freedom of speech is a hill I’m happy to die on’.
Standing firm, Morgan told reporters outside his West London home: ‘If I have to fall on my sword for expressing an honestly held opinion about Meghan Markle and that diatribe of bilge that she came out with in that interview, so be it.’
Hours after the Oprah interview aired, Morgan branded Meghan ‘Princess Pinocchio’ after the Duchess said she was suicidal while five months pregnant but was denied any help by the palace.
She also accused the Royal Family of being concerned Archie’s skin would be too ‘dark’ and denying him the title of prince because he is mixed race.
Morgan had demanded the Sussexes back up their claims with evidence.
It came as leading figures in American media, including CNN anchor Jake Tapper and former Fox News host Megyn Kelly, showed their support for Morgan
His views, and his refusal to back down in the row, sparked more than 41,000 complaints made to Ofcom, fuelled by an orchestrated social media campaign spearheaded by his critics including several Labour MPs.
The Duchess of Sussex’s decision to intervene in the row came as Morgan doubled down after leaving GMB, calling her incendiary claims to Oprah about the Royal Family ‘contemptible’ and declaring: ‘I don’t believe almost anything that comes out of her mouth’.
It came as leading figures in American media showed their support for Morgan.
CNN anchor Jake Tapper and former Fox News host Megyn Kelly both praised Morgan and said he had been treated unfairly.
Tapper described the Ofcom investigation as ‘insanity’.
‘This is what happens when you live in a country where there is no First amendment. Insanity,’ he said, linking to a Variety article entitled: ‘U.K. media regulator Ofcom launched an investigation after more than 41,000 people complained about Piers Morgan’s comments on Meghan Markle.’
When Tapper was attacked by critics of Morgan, he concluded: ‘OK, British friends. We disagree.’
Kelly also sprung to Morgan’s defense, tweeting: ‘I don’t know what happened w/ @piersmorgan at GMB.
‘What I do know is he & Susannah have been a brilliant team that took risks & became must-watch TV.
‘In an era of free speech being stifled everywhere, Piers fearlessly speaks his mind. We need more, not fewer like that in media.’
