Prince Harry says he wants to have only two children 'maximum' with Meghan Markle in bid to help save the planet

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly want only two children in an apparent bid to help save the planet.

In a candid interview with conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall, Prince Harry made the exceptional revelation as part of the September issue of British Vogue guest edited by wife Meghan Markle, Daily Mail reports.

He said that the pair planned to have just one more child after their son Archie after discussing the "terrifying" effects of climate change.

According to Harry, who claimed that becoming a father has changed the way he sees the world, the couple only wants "two maximum" for the sake of the environment.


Meanwhile, his brother William and his wife Kate have already defied convention by having three kids, and speculation is rife a fourth may well be on its way.

"I view it differently now, without question," Harry said, referring to his outlook after the birth of his newborn son. "But I've always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children…"

"Not too many...," Dr. Goodall cut in saying, when Harry responded: "Two, maximum!"

Harry also chimed in on the issue of racism in Britain and explained how "unconscious bias" is often passed down generations.
Furthermore, he told Dr. Goodall that in order to tackle racial discrimination, Britons need to make an effort to understand where their respective prejudices come from.Meghan has faced disparaging comments about her race ever since news of her engagement to Harry broke in the autumn of 2017.


But while the Duchess has often dodged questions about her racial heritage, her husband did not shy away from the subject.

"Despite the fact that if you go up to someone and say 'what you've just said, or the way you've behaved, is racist' - they'll turn around and say, 'I'm not a racist'," Harry told Dr. Goodall while commenting on "unconscious bias".

He continued: "I'm not saying you're a racist, I'm just saying that your unconscious bias is proving that because of the way that you've been brought up, the environment you've been brought up in, suggests that you have this point of view - unconscious point of view - where naturally you will look at someone in a different way."

As guest editor for the popular magazine's September issue, Meghan chose 15 women to function as "trailblazers" and "forces for change" in Britain. 
The Duchess chose women who have become firebrands of a series of causes from transgender rights to body positivity to feature in the magazine, including British model Adwoa Aboah and New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
However, she faced a major backlash over her choices, with many saying she should not be editing magazines under a royal title.
Furthermore, she was also ridiculed for not including the Queen and for glossing over nurses, lawyers, doctors, and teachers who have made valuable contributions to society.
