Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been named as environmental “role models” for deciding to have no more than two children to reduce their impact on the planet. Population Matters, a UK-based charity that campaigns for sustainable human population said it had chosen the couple to receive an award for their “enlightened” decision to have 2 kids.
The charity sees population growth as a major contributor to environmental degradation, biodiversity loss, resource depletion, and climate change. A spokesman said: “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.
“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.”
