Prince Harry has admitted he wants “two kids, maximum” with wife Meghan Markle in a bid to help save the planet.
The Duke of Sussex made the candid remark during an interview with legendary ethologist Dr Jane Goodall, 85, which will be published in September’s issue of British Vogue, guest-edited by Meghan.
The 34-year-old new dad was prompted to make the revelation as the pair discussed the environment and climate change.
Harry said: “I think, weirdly, because of the people that I’ve met and the places that I’ve been fortunate enough to go to, I’ve always had a connection and a love for nature. I view it differently now, without question.
“I’ve always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children…”
Dr Goodall then jumped in – saying she hoped the parents wouldn’t “too many” kids.
He replied: “Two, maximum!”
The Duke then added: “ But I’ve always thought: this place is borrowed. And, surely, being as intelligent as we all are, or as evolved as we all are supposed to be, we should be able to leave something better behind for the next generation.”
Brother Prince William and wife Kate Middleton have three children, while Harry and Meghan welcomed son Archie in May.
The Duke went on to issue a warning about the world needing to wake up to the damage being caused to the earth.
He continued: “I always think to myself, whenever there’s another natural disaster, a huge increase in volcano eruptions or earthquakes or flooding, how many clues does nature have to give us before we actually learn, or wake ourselves up to the damage and the destruction that we’re causing?”
