Meghan Markle is one of the most talked about people in the world, making news this week after announcing that she has guest-edited the British Vogue September issue – a royal first.
But it wasn’t the cover art or her conversation with Michelle Obama that had everyone talking this week. Instead, it was her husband Prince Harry’s contribution to the magazine’s issue.
Yes, Prince Harry also took part in the production, writing an introduction about society’s ‘unconscious bias’ and its connection to racism, as well as sitting down with primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall to talk about the climate change, something that it seems has affected his parenting plans.
‘What we need to remind everybody is: These are things that are happening now. We are already living in it,’ Prince Harry explained in his conversation with Jane. ‘We are the frog in the water and it’s already been brought to the boil. Which is terrifying.’
‘Happening and happened,’ Dr Jane Goodall responded. ‘It is terrifying. Especially as you’ve just had a baby.’
‘I know,’ the new father responded. ’It does make it different. I think, weirdly because of the people that I’ve met and the places I’ve been fortunate enough to go, I’ve always had a connection and a love for nature. 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…’, before the primatologist jumped in to clarify : ‘Not too many!’
Prince Harry’s answer? ‘Two, maximum! But 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.’
Well, that’s that.
