Buckingham Palace aides have reportedly been plotting to stop Prince Harry's upcoming memoir from being released.
It is said there is deep concern from King Charles III's staff over the possible impact of his son's revelations.
The bombshell book is set to be released later this year, although there has been speculation it may be delayed to 2023 following the Queen's death.

According to the Daily Mail, aides have been discussing how to block the book as part of a new, presidential-style strategy focused on the first 100 days of the King's reign.
A friend of the King told the publication: "The question inside the Palace is: 'Can the book be stopped?' It may be that even Harry can’t stop it at this stage but the feeling at the very top is that there’s no good that can come of airing grievances in public."
The Royal Family's lawyers from the firm Harbottle and Lewis are expected to comb through the book when it is released.
Harry has signed a £36million deal with Penguin Random House for the book, and it remains unlikely the King will wage a legal battle against his son.
A Palace source told the Daily Mail: "His Majesty will build on the points he has expressed to the nation: now that the period of mourning is over, he will support diversity, promote community spirit and protect the space for those with faith and those without.
"He is mindful that, as King, his interests and passions will continue but that… some of his previous commitments will now continue in the trusted hands of others."

Discussing the book, Harry previously said: "I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become. I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story – the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned – I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.
"I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a first-hand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful."
