Wills tells parents to stop having kids…while expecting third child
Prince William has urged people not to have too many children in a bid to avoid overpopulation.
William, whose wife is expecting their third child, said population growth is “staggering”.
At a gala for conservation charity Tusk in London, he said: “In my lifetime, we have seen global wildlife populations decline by over half.
“We are going to have to work much harder, and think much deeper, if we are to ensure that human beings and the other species of animal with which we share this planet can continue to co-exist.
“Africa’s rapidly growing human population is predicted to more than double by 2050 – a staggering increase of three and a half million people per month.”

He added that urbanisation and cultivation were “good things in themselves” but will have a “terrible impact” on the environment.
His call echoed grandad Prince Philip who once suggested a “voluntary family limitation” policy.
