The environmental group Population Matters has announced they are presenting an award to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for their decision to limit their family to two children.
Price Harry said in a 2019 interview with British Vogue that was guest-edited by Markle that they would only have two kids, “maximum” because they believe the Earth “is borrowed.” Explaining his decision, Harry added, “Because 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.”
The couple, who currently have a son (2-year-old Archie Harrison) and a daughter (one-month-old Lilibet Diana), have vowed not to add any more children to their family. Population Matters called this an “enlightened decision” and dubbed the Sussexes “role models.” Population Matters, whose aim is to “create a wave of public awareness and corresponding policy action on overpopulation and unsustainable consumption,” will also present the couple with approximately $695 to contribute to the charity of their choice.
“In choosing and publicly declaring their intention to limit their family to two, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are helping to ensure a better future for their children and providing a role model for other families,” a spokesperson said. “Having a smaller family reduces our impact on the Earth, and provides a better chance for all our children, their children, and future generations to flourish on a healthy planet. We commend the Duke and Duchess for taking this enlightened decision, and for affirming that a smaller family is also a happy family.”
