Population Matters charity has given Harry and Meghan award for limiting family to two children.
Prince Harry, 36, told British Vogue in 2019 he and Meghan, 39, were only planning “two maximum” to reduce their impact on the environment.
Their son Archie was born on 6 May that year, followed by Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana on 4 June 2021.
The couple have said they only want two children.
The charity Population Matters said they were giving the couple the award after making the “enlightened decision” to have a smaller family and acting 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,” the charity said in a statement.
“We commend the duke and duchess for taking this enlightened decision, and for affirming that a smaller family is also a happy family.”
