Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have been awarded a unique prize from the Population Matters charity. A spokesman for the group announced the "Special Award" this week.
The reason for the award is the couple's family planning: they've consciously chosen to have only two children for the sake of the environment. Prince Harry explained this decision in a Vogue interview back in 2019.

Population Matters, which gave Harry and Meghan the award, is a British environmental sustainability charity. Announcing the Sussexes as the winners of the Special Award, a spokesman said:
"In choosing and publicly declaring their intention to limit their family to two, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are helping to ensure a better future for their children and providing a role model for other families."
The spokesman continued: "Having a smaller family reduces our impact on the Earth, and provides a better chance for all our children, their children and future generations to flourish on a healthy planet.
"We commend the Duke and Duchess for taking this enlightened decision, and for affirming that a smaller family is also a happy family."
In his 2019 Vogue interview, Prince Harry justified the two-child decision by explaining how environmental conservation has always been a priority in his life.
But, now that he's a father himself, it's an even greater matter of the heart to preserve for future generations. So the Duke and Duchess decided to have just two children.
