Prince Harry Just Revealed the Exact Number of Kids He Wants...and It May Surprise You

Don't worry, baby Archie. It doesn't sound like you'll have to share the spotlight with too many other Sussexes.

That is, according to Prince Harry, who sat down with conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall for a candid interview for British Vogue's September issue, of which his wife Meghan Markle is guest editor.

During the interview, the Duke of Sussex revealed the maximum number of kids he wants with the duchess, and his answer sorta surprised us (but more on that later).When chatting with Goodall about the environment and climate change, Harry brought up the finite natural resources left on Earth. Goodall, a legendary octogenarian primatologist and anthropologist, commented that having a child changes your perspective a bit, alluding to royal baby Archie. 

Prince Harry agreed, saying having Archie "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," Harry continued. "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.."

"Not too many..." Goodall interjected with a laugh.

"Two, maximum!" Harry replied quickly.

Two?! We only get one more royal Sussex baby?! We need a moment to absorb this new info...

This news may come as a shock to royal stans, who believed Markle and Harry wanted a big family. In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, royal correspondent and biographer Katie Nicholl said "sources close to the couple told me that they really would love to have a big family."

"They are, by all accounts, amazing parents. They are loving parenthood," Nicholl continued.

Big fam or small, Archie always has his three older cousins to look up to. (Can we please get a Keeping Up with the Cambridges sitcom, stat?!)
