Archie’s Story moves Meghan Markle

Contestant Archie is a singer who has mesmerized the judges as well as the audience in the past. However, he has a sad history of wrongful convictions. He got wrongly convicted for the rape. After 12 years of imprisonment, he tried to overturn his sentence by connecting with the Innocence Project. After 36 years of imprisonment, he finally got acquitted in 2019 after the fingerprints from the scene matched with a serial rapist. Meghan was touched by it and said:

β€œJust wanted to let you know that we’ve been so moved by your story and we’ve been cheering you on every week and it’s not just because we’re partial to the name.”

The Duchess of Sussex conveyed that she and Harry are rooting for Archie to win the competition. She said:

β€œSo, a very special message to you that I’ll probably be saying all of my life, but on this night it’s specifically for you: Archie, we are proud of you and are rooting for you, we can’t wait to see what you do. We’re in your corner, have a good night.”

β€œI knew I was innocent, I didn’t commit a crime. But being a poor Black kid, I didn’t have the economic ability to fight the state of Louisiana.”
