It's about as relatable as it gets.

Turns out, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are just like any other married couple: The quirks of living together have officially started to reveal themselves, six months post-wedding. The biggest thing the newlyweds don't see eye to eye on? Lights. The Duke of Sussex is apparently obsessive about turning lights off-and this environmentally-friendly habit is one Markle doesn't always understand, reports Entertainment Tonight.

In the new BBC documentary, Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70, Harry opened up about his passion for conserving energy (a lesson his father, Prince Charles, taught him!). "My wife certainly goes, 'Well, why turn the lights off? It's dark,'" Harry said. "I go, 'We only need one light, we don't need, like, six,' and all of a sudden, it becomes a habit."

Although she may have been baffled by her husband's eco-friendly habit at first, it sounds like Markle is getting on board. But turning the lights off isn't the only green trait her husband inherited from Prince Charles. The Duke of Sussex also explained that his father has always encouraged his sons to treat the environment with respect (both Prince Harry and Prince William picked up litter as children!)-and this is something the Prince of Wales has only become more passionate about since becoming a grandfather. "I am about to have another grandchild actually. I suspect quite a few of you may too have grandchildren or will do soon," Charles said during a visit to Ghana this week, reports The Telegraph. "It does seem to me insanity if we are going to bequeath this completely polluted, damaged and destroyed world to them."

We have a feeling that Prince Harry and Markle will take a similar approach to raising their future children. According to royal reporter Omid Scobie, soon-to-be parents are determined to give their future baby a "normal" life. "Meghan will take her kids on a subway. They'll have chores, and jobs one day. They won't be spoiled," the insider told Us Weekly.
