Prince Harry reveals the "maximum" number of kids he wants with Duchess Meghan

Prince Harry has hinted he and Duchess Meghan are planning to have one more child. 

The Duke of Sussex, 34, opened up during an interview with world-famous ethologist Dr. Jane Goodall for the September issue Vogue, edited by Meghan. 

The couple welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor, on May 6. 

In the intimate conversation between the royal and Goodall, they discussed preserving the world for the next generation.

“We are the one species on this planet that seems to think that this place belongs to us, and only us,” the 34-year-old royal said. 

The royal also pointed out the “terrifying” state of the world - a feeling that truly dawned on him when he welcomed his little Archie. 

“Well, it does make it different, doesn’t it?” she said.

“It does make it different,” Harry replied. “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. 

“But I’ve always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children…”

“Not too many!” Dr. Goodall responded with a laugh.

“Two, maximum!” said Prince Harry. “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.”

While visiting the royal couple’s Frogmore Cottage home, the famed primatologist admitted to getting in a quick cuddle session with baby Archie. 

“He’s very cute and very gentle,” Dr. Goodall told reporters.

The Duchess of Sussex revealed in her editor’s letter she had been working on her project with Vogue for many months - all while preparing for the arrival of her first baby boy. 

“I was about five months pregnant when this process began, and by the time you hold this issue in your hands, my husband and I will be holding our three-month-old baby boy in ours,” the royal wrote. 

“It’s a very special time for me personally, on so many levels; working with Edward and his team, both during my pregnancy and my maternity leave, has played no small part in that joy – it has been a privilege to be welcomed and supported by this amazing team.”
