Little Archie must be a whole lot of work! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s “two children” reveal in Vogue is pretty shocking. The Duke of Sussex spoke to Dr. Jane Goodall for the September Issue of British Vogue which—bonus!—his wife guest-edited. Prince Harry and Markle welcomed their little bundle of joy earlier this spring. The new parents adore their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, but have decided that a small little family is what they most desire. Goodall and Prince Harry were discussing the diminishing natural resources on our planet, a fact they pointed out was absolutely “terrifying,” especially as a parent.
“It is terrifying. Especially as you’ve just had a baby,” Goodall told the Duke, referencing two-month-old Archie.
“I view it differently now, without question,” Harry said. “But I’ve always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children …”
“Not too many!” Goodall joked.
“Two, maximum!” Harry added. “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.”
So it looks like baby Archie will only have on sibling! Luckily, he has three cousins to keep him plenty of company.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis join The Queen and Members of @TheRoyalFamily to watch the @RoyalAirForceUK @RAFRedArrows fly past over Buckingham Palace, following Trooping the Colour, The Queen’s Birthday Parade. Trooping the Colour has marked the official birthday of the British Sovereign for over 260 years. Over 1400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians come together each June in a great display of military precision, horsemanship and fanfare to mark The Queen's official birthday.📷PA @TheRoyalFamily #TroopingtheColour #BuckinghamPalace #QBP2019
If you haven’t taken a look at some of the other snippets from Markle’s guest-edited issue of British Vogue, you absolutely should. Prince Harry wrote an introduction where he heavily focused on racism, and how people develop an unconscious bias.
“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 said of biased people. “‘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.’ And that is the point at which people start to have to understand.”
