This Friday, June 4, Meghan Markle gave birth to her second child, Lilibet Diana. And Archie’s little sister could be the last of the family, as Meghan Markle and Harry have already said they do not want a third child.
Her name pays tribute to two women of the highest importance in the life of her father, Harry. Lilibet for Queen Elizabeth II and Diana for the late Princess of Hearts. Little Lilibet Diana was born on June 4, two days before her parents, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, officially announced her arrival in the world. If she is not a princess, the little girl born at the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California could end up becoming one, a fact that could be re-evaluated in a few years. What may not change is her status as the youngest child in the family. Indeed, her parents the Sussexes have already stated that they do not want a third child.
It was during an interview with British Vogue, that Prince Harry mentioned it for the first time, in July 2019, recalls Elle UK this June 7. Asked about climate change, he answered the importance of this subject in his life especially since he became a father and intends to have several children. “I’ve always had a connection and a love for nature. But I see things differently now, obviously. But I’ve always made sure that I pay attention to it, even before I had a child, or hope to have children,” Prince William’s brother told Dr. Jane Goodall. She would then interrupt him by saying, “Not too much!” What Henry of Sussex replied then: “Two, at most!” The message is clear.
Two, at the most!
Of course, Meghan Markle’s age most certainly comes into the equation as well. The Duchess of Sussex will indeed celebrate her 40th birthday on August 4. But more than this famous biological clock, behind the choice of Prince Harry and his wife not to have a third child is hidden first this ecological will.
