Prince Harry Reveals Exactly How Many Kids He And Meghan Will Have

For anyone choosing to have children, there are a lot of factors contributing to how many they will have. Things like time and resources (financial and other) are definitely contributing factors. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex aka Prince Harry and Meghan Markle don't have too many things to worry about in terms of resources. But environmental resources may be playing a part in how many children they decide to have.

Prince Harry recently sat down with Dr. Jane Goodall, a world renowned ethologist known for her work with primates, to talk about environmental health and conservation. In their conversation, which you can find in the September issue of British Vogue, Prince Harry talks about just how many kids may be in the couple's future. "Two, maximum!" he exclaimed when asked.

During their conversation for British Vogue, which is guest edited by Meghan Markle, they talk about all things surrounding climate change. Dr. Goodall points out that we may feel differently about the world around us after children, to which Prince Harry agrees.

"It does make it different. 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," he says.

"But I’ve always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children," he says, which caused Dr. Goodall to remark, "Not too many!" with a laugh. "Two, maximum!" Prince Harry replies.

Dr. Goodall's response isn't actually that weird. There are many environmentalists and people fighting to stop climate change who would agree with her. What they believe is having more children will create more of a drain on natural resources. While it's obviously a personal choice, the want to leave something behind for our children certainly will affect some people's decisions about how many children to have in the future.

"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," Prince Harry says.

Following that, Dr. Goodall makes an excellent point. "But, in fact, we’ve stolen their future. Not all of it. But we’ve got to try and pay a little of it back," she says.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just welcomed their first son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor in May. So they're probably still just reveling in the joy of being parents for the first time. Family planning may be on their minds, but it's doubtful they've made any firm decisions. But if climate change and environmentalism play a part in their decision, that's an admirable choice.
