Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Only Want 'Maximum' Two Children Over Climate Concerns

In an effort to empower young children to save the planet, Prince Harry and his brother Prince William had recently interacted with Dr. Jane Goodall earlier this month.

At a time when it is extremely pivotal to take every possible measure to save the planet from the looming climate crisis, Royal couple Prince Harry and Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle have pledged that they will only have two kids at the most and it's for a very good reason. The loving parents of son Archie made the decision keeping in mind to save the planet and slow down climate change.

Being one of the most influentials couples around, the Duke of Sussex spoke to environmental activist Jane Goodall for an interview to be published in the September issue of British Vogue. And it was guest-edited by Markle herself.  

 



 

 

Harry and Goodall spoke about a multitude of topics ranging from racism to the environment and even climate change. The Royal Prince spoke to Dr. Goodall about how having a child gives you a whole new perspective to what is happening to the environment and that it is indeed “terrifying,” reports British Vogue

 



 

 

“It does make it different,” Harry told Goodall during the interview. “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. But I’ve always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children…”

Goodall chimed into the conversation, saying “Not too many!”

“Two, maximum!” said Prince Harry. “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.”

 



 

 

In an effort to empower young children to save the planet, Prince Harry and his brother Prince William had interacted with Goodall earlier this month. The Duke of Sussex heaped praises on Goodall, the legendary scientist and conservationist, for working with kids and helping them shape a better future.

The duo also spoke about other pivotal topics including global warming, animal protection, ocean pollution, unsustainable human lifestyle, and conflict resolution. Their interaction was attended by students from 26 nations at Windsor Castle, part of Roots & Shoots project.

 



 

 

"But, in fact, we've stolen their future," Goodall said, in an alarming tone. "Not all of it. But we've got to try and pay a little of it back. And get together to try and heal some of the harm, and at least slow down climate change." 

There's no better way to end this without a quote from Sir David Attenborough who perfectly describes that “It’s not just climate change; it’s sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us. The natural world is doing it for us right now.”
