Prince Charles is said to be "deeply hurt" after Prince Harry suggested his father let him suffer in silence following the death of Princess Diana.
Speaking on the new Apple+ TV show The Me You Can't See, Harry, 36, criticised his father's style of parenting.
He said: "When I was younger my father used to say to William and I, 'It was like that for me so it's going to be like that for you'. That doesn't make sense! Just because you suffered doesn't mean your kids have to suffer.
"In fact just the opposite. If you suffered, do everything you can to make sure whatever negative experiences you had, you can make right for your kids. Isn’t this all about breaking the cycle?"
According to The Sun, sources close to the palace said the latest revelations have left Charles "at a loss about what to do" after Harry seemed to "villainise" his father.
“Father and son relations are at their lowest ever point," a source reportedly said.
"Harry doesn’t seem to take into account that parenting styles have radically changed over recent years, especially the role a father plays.
“It’s just so wounding to him [Charles], he’s a sensitive man and these personal attacks hurt deeply. He can’t understand why Harry is doing this to him."
Harry revealed that while grieving for his mother's death he began drinking to mask the pain.
He said: "I was wanting to drink, take drugs, do the things that made me feel less like I was feeling. I wasn't drinking Monday to Friday, but I would probably drink a week's worth on one day. I was drinking not because I was enjoying it but because I was trying to mask something."
The former royal appeared on Good Morning America via video link to promote his new Apple TV documentary The Me You Can't See.
The five part mini series has been produced and is hosted by Oprah Winfrey.
Speaking about experiencing loss at a young age, Harry told GMA: "If we hold on to grief it manifests itself and appears later in life.
"That is what I have learned from this process.
"But being able to put ourselves in someone else's shoes and to be able to help in that healing process is absolutely critical."
