Meghan Markle just gave one lucky America’s Got Talent contestant a major shoutout.
The Duchess of Sussex recently filmed a good luck message for one of the show’s finalists, Archie Williams, which aired on the AGT finale on Wednesday. According to a People exclusive, Markle and her hubby, Prince Harry, have been “watching the series and loved him from the moment they first saw him.”
“Just 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,” she said in the clip referring to the fact that Williams shares a first name with her son, Archie. “So, 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.”
Williams has become a national favorite this season, after impressing viewers with his vocal cords. Not to mention, his story caught the attention of millions. Turns out, the 59-year-old was wrongfully convicted for aggravated rape and attempted murder in Louisiana when he was in his 20s. His conviction was overturned (with the help of the Innocence Project) after he served 12 years.
This is the second time this week the 39-year-old duchess has made an appearance on primetime television. In honor of National Voter Registration Day, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined ABC's Time 100 special. The event marked their first TV appearance since the couple stepped down as senior members of the royal family.
Who knew we had the same taste in television as Harry and Meghan?
