Because prism split white light to different colors according to their wave lengths ...
The wave length of Red is Longer than the wave length of Violet
Thats why the Violet bends more than the Red

The red light has a longer wave length and a lower frequency than the violet light...
Longer wave length = Less refraction, Lower frequency = less refraction. The violet light has a shorter wave length and a higher frequency.Source(s): own knowledge
