A 3rd child may no longer be relevant for the Sussexes. Indeed, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle received a particularly surprising parental award. This is the “An Informed Decision” award. A prize received for having limited their family to 2 children. After the birth of Lilibet Diana Mountbatten Windsor on June 4, the British charity Population Matters presented the couple with an award. An award received after the family decided not to have more children. This charitable organization aims to help limit the size of families. This in order to preserve the environment. A reward of £ 500 (around $ 928) following this informed decision is notably offered to couples who decide to have a small family.
The couple Harry and Meghan have been called “role models for others”. The cash prize will be donated to a charity of their choice. “Having a smaller family reduces our impact on Earth and gives all of our children, their children and future generations a better chance to thrive on a healthy planet,” the charity said in a statement.
“Two children maximum to limit its environmental impact”
Harry and Meghan’s decision is not much of a surprise. Indeed, the couple had already made an announcement in this direction before the birth of Archie Mountbatten Windsor in 2019. Harry and Meghan had notably declared to British Vogue that they plan to have “two children maximum to limit their environmental impact” .
During this interview, the Duke of Sussex had claimed that the land was borrowed. “Surely, being as smart as we all are, or as evolved as we are all supposed to be, we should be able to leave something better behind for the next generation,” he told Vogue.
