While it hasn’t even been one week since we learned that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their second child together, we can’t deny we’re already wondering about the possibility of baby number three. However, in a recently resurfaced interview from 2019, the Duke of Sussex revealed that the couple’s second child will be their last.
During the interview, which was released in the September 2019 issue of British Vogue, the 35-year-old ex-royal opened up to his friend and fellow environmentalist, Jane Goodall, about growing his family. Turns out, due to environmental reasons, the plan all along was to have no more than two children.
“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,” Harry told Goodall per Marie Claire. “I’ve always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children.”
“We are the one species on this planet that seems to think that this place belongs to us, and only us,” Harry continued, after revealing that he and Markle would have two kids “maximum.” “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.”
