Prince Harry has been criticized for not being “as smart” as his wife Meghan Markle as the couple continue to build their life in California, one commentator has claimed.
Daily Wire host Candace Owens criticized the Duke of Sussex for having been “manipulated” by the Duchess since the start of their relationship in 2016.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down from their roles within the Royal Family in January 2020 and moved to Montecito, California, to start their new life.
The royal couple have been keeping busy landing a series of deals with entertainment moguls Netflix and Spotify, as well as writing their own books.
Candace Owens says Prince Harry is ‘not as smart’ as Meghan Markle
Prince Harry returned to the UK this week for a brief visit to his estranged father, King Charles, following the announcement of his cancer diagnosis.
The Prince spent a “maximum of 45 minutes” with the King, before flying back to Los Angeles, where he then traveled to Los Angeles for the NFL Awards.
Discussing the Prince’s quick visit amid King Charles and Princess Kate’s health problems, commentator Candace Owens claimed that Americans are “not happy” about the Duke’s return to the United States.
Owens claimed Harry “followed Meghan’s American dream” and is “subject to her manipulation.”
Harry and Meghan have adopted their most famous lifestyle since moving to California.
Owens told GBN America host Nigel Farage: “I knew they would end up in Los Angeles because that was Meghan’s dream. “Her dream was to be a star and she couldn’t achieve it on her own merits as an actress.
“So she figured out how to maneuver that by marrying a Prince, which the only way to put it is that he’s not as smart as her. He’s not reading the situation as clearly as other people see it. And he’s been subjected to her manipulation. “
Owens also claimed that Meghan Markle was seeking to “deconstruct” the Royal Family based on “something noble,” which was her accusations of “racism.”
He added: “She wanted fame and she wanted wealth. And I don’t want to say that Prince Harry was an unwitting participant. He’s obviously not as smart as her, but he also liked fame and he liked attention in a certain way as well.”

Nigel Farage reacted to Owens’ comments and said it will be “very difficult” for the Royal Family to forgive Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for what they have done.
Nigel explained: “It’s very difficult for the Queen to forgive him. It’s very difficult for William and Kate to forgive him, given the horrible things he wrote about them in that Spare book.
“I suppose if he apologized, then he could receive forgiveness. And certainly, in this country there was a kind of hope for reconciliation.
“But, you know, your thesis is that she’s basically using him. She’s using the fact that he’s a British prince and it’s all about her.”
