A British charity dedicated to limiting family size to help save the environment presented Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with an award this week for their decision to have only two children.
According to reports, Population Matters will award the couple, who welcomed their second child last month, the equivalent of $695 for their “enlightened decision” to have a small family and for serving as “role models for others.”
“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,” the charity said in a statement.
In 2019, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle told British Vogue that they were planning “two maximum” children to reduce their environmental impact.
The couple welcomed their second child, a daughter named Lilibet Diana, last month. Meanwhile, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, their first child, was born in May 2019.
