A British charity organization whose purpose is to encourage limiting family size to help save the environment has given a cash award to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for their decision to only have two children.
According to Page Six, the charity calls itself Population Matters and apparently they are over the moon with the news that the royal couple who welcomed their second child last month will now be $695 richer for their "enlightened decision" to have a small family.
A statement from the Population Matters charity read, "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 statement went on.
This award shouldn't have come as too much of a shock to the Prince and the mother of his two children. After all, the pair have made it no secret that they are actively not going to try for a third child in order to reduce their own personal impact on the earth's environment, but it does make one wonder what should happen if they do end up with a third child.
In the September 2019 issue of Vogue magazine, the Duke had this to say about having children, "I've always thought: this place is borrowed. And, surely, being a 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."
There is currently no information on what Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex plan to do with their cash award, or if it is to be donated.
