Prince Harry and Meghan Markle might have only just welcomed their baby son Archie three months ago, but the question of baby No. 2 is already hot on everyone’s lips. And now, in a candid conversation that we weren’t expecting to hear so soon, we’ve got somewhat of an answer straight from the horses mouth. Brace yourself, Archie, because Harry has just revealed exactly how many siblings he expects!
In the glorious new upcoming issue of British Vogue, which has been guest-edited by Meghan Markle in a historic first, we can expect to see a candid interview between Meghan’s husband and a very special guest.
The charming red-headed royal speaks to Dr. Jane Goodall, celebrated ethologist and family friend of the Sussexes, about a number of topics. And between their inspiring words about conversation and environment, there was one line that’s piqued the interest of royal fans the world over.
While speaking about family planning along with conservation and climate change, Harry tells Goodall: “I view it very differently now, without question.”
He continues: “I’ve always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children…” to which Jane interjects, saying: “Not too many!”
Harry then shared the golden nugget that has royal fans surprised: “Two, maximum!”
The very exciting revelation is welcome news to fans, who would love to see a baby sibling for Archie.
In the interview, Harry continues his train of thought saying, “I’ve always thought, this place is borrowed. And surely, 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.”
Harry and Jane have recently shared some sweet moments together in the public eye. Earlier in July, the pair attended a special event in London where they chatted together like old friends.
Jane also revealed that she had met baby Archie in June, saying she had shared a cuddle with him and describing the newborn as “very cute and very gentle.”

Earlier this summer HRH The Duke of Sussex met with world renowned ethologist Dr. Jane Goodall for an intimate conversation on environment, activism, and the world as they see it. This special sit-down was requested by The Duchess of Sussex, who has long admired Dr. Goodall and wanted to feature her in the September issue of @BritishVogue, which HRH has guest edited. HRH and Dr. Goodall spoke candidly about many topics including the effects of unconscious bias, and the need for people to acknowledge that your upbringing and environment can cause you to be prejudiced without realising it. The Duke described that “[when] you start to peel away all the layers, all the taught behaviour, the learned behaviour, the experienced behaviour, you start to peel all that away – and at the end of the day, we’re all humans.” • Through @RootsandShoots the global youth service program @JaneGoodallInst founded in 1991, she has created and encouraged a global youth community to recognise the power of their individual strength – that each day you live, you can make a difference.

The candid conversation between Harry and Jane in Vogue is one that will no doubt be devoured by readers as the September issue of the magazine hits stands at the end of the week.
Meghan’s milestone edit of the iconic fashion bible will also feature 15 women who were hand-selected by Meghan for being “changemakers” and “trailblazers.”
Among the women who feature on the front cover are Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern, body positivity advocate and actor Jameela Jamil, women’s rights advocate and actor Salma Hayek Pinault, and campaigner and actor Jane Fonda.
Meghan has explained her thought process behind the theme, saying in a statement that she has decided to take “the year’s most read fashion issue and steer its focus to the values, causes, and people making impact in the world today.”
Suffice to say we can’t wait to read it!
