(Newser) – If Prince Harry has another baby, it will be his last, he reveals in a new interview with environmental activist Jane Goodall. In discussing their concerns about the planet and its diminishing resources, Harry told Goodall he's become even more concerned about Earth's future since having his first baby, Archie, in May. "But I've always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children," he continued. Goodall jumped in to warn: "Not too many," to which Harry replied, "Two, maximum." CNN reports the interview will be part of British Vogue's September issue, out Aug. 2, which Meghan guest-edited.

Of course, the comment spurred some to scratch their heads, considering Harry's brother has three children: "If Prince Harry wants to have two kids to save the planet did he just say Prince William has too many kids?" wondered one Twitter user. Another aspect of the Vogue issue also caused headlines suggesting royal sibling drama: Insider points out that Meghan Markle reportedly said it would be too "boastful" for her to appear on the cover, but sister-in-law Kate Middleton appeared on the cover of the same magazine in 2016. The Daily Express adds that Princess Diana also appeared on the cover, and notes that some royal-watchers see Meghan's move as a swipe at Kate. (Read more Prince Harry stories.)
