Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed baby Archie into the world – with the dad saying he wanted a maximum of two kids[/caption]

The couple welcomed their 21st child in November last year – with their kids ranging from 30-years-old to nine months.

And when quizzed on Good Morning Britain over what the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were missing out on with plans for two kids, mum Sue gushed over her own huge brood, saying: “We just love the chaos of them all.”

Dad Noel jumped in, saying: “The laughter, playing all the time. Just things like that.”

The dad added: “Fair enough, if he only wants the two.

“Not everyone wants a big family like we do.

“I think he’s using it – the excuse of the planet – you know. He’s flying around in private jets, isn’t he. He’s got his big entourage following him everywhere, his big luxury home that is heated, the lighting.

“He obviously just wants the two.”

The family said it was difficult keeping everyone amused – particularly during the school holidays – but said they loved every moment.

‘TWO, MAXIMUM!’

It comes after Harry, 34, opened up about his passion for the future generations, climate change and his love for nature as he spoke with conservationist Jane Goodall in a Q&A for Meghan Markle’s guest edition of September Vogue.

In the heart-to-heart chat, the 34-year-old new dad said he only wanted two kids in a bid to help save the planet.

He said: “I think, weirdly, because of the people that I’ve met and the places that I’ve been fortunate enough to go to, I’ve always had a connection and a love for nature. I view it differently now, without question.

“I’ve always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children…”

It was here that Dr Goodall jumped in – saying she hoped the parents would have “not too many” kids.

And Prince Harry replied: “Two, maximum!

“But I’ve always thought: this place is borrowed. And, surely, being 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.”

RADFORD BROOD

The Radford family first became known after starring in Channel 4’s 16 Kids and Counting.

Both Sue and Noel were given up for adoption at birth.

She fell pregnant with Chris at just 14 in 1989 and was determined to keep the baby.

They got hitched four years later and she was soon expecting their second child Sophie.

Just over a year later they learned they were expecting Chloe – and babies have followed in quick succession ever since.

The Radford children are: Chris, 29, Sophie, 25, Chloe, 23, Jack, 22, Daniel, 20, Luke, 18, Millie, 17, Katie, 16, James, 15, Ellie, 13, Aimee, 13, Josh, 11, Max, 10, Tillie, eight, Oscar, seven, Casper, six, Hallie, three, Phoebe, two, and Archie, one, and Bonnie, six months.

Their son Alfie was stillborn in 2014. Bonnie had the same due date as Alfie.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, 37, welcomed baby Archie in May – gushing over their “amazing” son.

Meghan guest edited the September issue of Vogue, but left herself off the cover over fears she would look “boastful”.

She chose to instead focus on 15 women who “break barriers” and the duchess hoped that readers would also be inspired by their work.

The magazine’s editor-in-chief Edward Enninful spoke of the Duchess of Sussex’s decision to leave herself off the cover – unlike Kate Middleton, 37, when she appeared in the magazine in June 2016.

He said: “From the very beginning, we talked about the cover – whether she would be on it or not. In the end, she felt that it would be in some ways a ‘boastful’ thing to do for this particular project.


Inside the magazine there is also a conversation between Meghan and former US First Lady Michelle Obama.

One of the 16 photo slots on the front cover is that of a mirror, which encourages the reader to use their own platform for change.

The edition is entitled Forces For Change, and Buckingham Palace said this highlights “trailblazing change makers, united by their fearlessness in breaking barriers”.
