Regarding climate change, he said that "we are already living in it. We are the frog in the water and it's already been brought to the boil." When asked about his family, Prince Harry said he would keep it small after Goodall suggested they have "not too many" kids.

He said "I view it differently now, without question. But I've always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children."
When Goodall added "Not too many," Harry said: "two, maximum."
?????? Is this the same Harry who uses helicopters to go from London to Birmingham & whose wife uses celebrity mates’ private jets to cross the Atlantic? https://t.co/KvOhlbWI3C— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 30, 2019
Indeed, a recent report showed that "In 2019 its CO2 emission total for business travel was 3,344 tonnes, compared to 1,687 tonnes in 2018," according to CNN.
Aside from the actual math of the situation, LiveAction's Lila Rose pointed out the sadness in the Royal family's world view.
"Kids are never the problem. We don’t solve concerns of war, the economy or climate by rejecting the GIFT of kids," Rose tweeted, "We solve our problems by taking ownership for whatever our part is in them, & by using the creativity, gifts & talents we have to serve others & make the world better."
