Prince Harry’s remark that he is protecting the world by having just 2 children has not gone down well with the Father of the largest British Family with 21 children who has said Harry’s green intentions do not tally up with his royal lifestyle.
The Duke of Sussex had given a barefoot speech’ at secretive Google Camp climate change conference in Italy where he said he and his wife Meghan wants a maximum of 2 children to in a bid to protect the environment by reducing their carbon footprint.
However reacting to the statement, Noel Radford, of Morecambe, Lancashire said his 21 children are a joy and suggested Harry’s green intentions do not tally up with his royal lifestyle.
Speaking to Good Morning Britain, Radford, 48, said: ‘Fair enough if he only wants the two. Not everyone wants a big family like us, do they.
‘But I think if he’s using the excuse of saving the planet, he’s flying around in private jets and he’s got his big entourage following him around everywhere.
‘He’s got his big luxury home that’s heated and has lighting everywhere.’
The Sussexes are known for their glamorous trips. In February, Meghan travelled by private jet for a five-night trip to New York, where she was thrown a lavish baby shower by her closest friends in a $75,000-a-night penthouse.
One return flight from London to New York generates more CO2 than citizens of some countries produce in a year, according to German nonprofit Atmosfair.
By not having a child, the carbon footprint of someone living in a developed country would be reduced on average by an extra 58.6 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year, based on emission rates in 2017.
