Prince Charles is prepared to leave his younger son "out in the cold" if he publicly criticises the Queen, an insider claims.
However the heir to the throne allegedly "still wants to engage" with Prince Harry despite a string of interviews criticising the Royal Family and his parenting.
The monarch is said to be "deeply upset" after the Duke of Sussex claimed that he and Meghan Markle suffered "total neglect" from the Royal Family in his Apple TV series.
A source told the Mail on Sunday: "I don't think the Prince will cut his son off despite what Harry has said.
"Charles will want to engage, but it's fair to say what Harry has said in both interviews with Oprah has been seen as very callous within the family.
"If Harry was to attack the Queen in a more personal way, Charles would close ranks with the Queen without a doubt and Harry would be out in the cold."
Harry made his latest claims about the Royal Family in his documentary series The Me You Can't See, which focuses on mental health.
The Duke of Sussex claimed that he and Meghan, along with their son Archie, "spent four years trying to make it work".
But their requests for help when Meghan was suicidal were "met with total silence, total neglect".
He said: "We did everything that we possibly could to stay there and carry on doing the role and doing the job. But Meghan was struggling.

"That feeling of being trapped within the family, there was no option to leave."
He also alleged that the Royal Family tried to "smear" him and Meghan before their bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview back in March.
The previous week Harry had told a podcast he wanted to "break the cycle" of "genetic pain".

He told Hollywood actor Dax Shepard on the Armchair Expert podcast: "When it comes to parenting, if I’ve experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered, I’m going to make sure I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on."
Harry's representatives have been approached for comment.
The documentary completed a turbulent week for the royals after the fallout from the inquiry into how the BBC secured its interview with Princess Diana.
Prince William slammed the broadcaster for "tricking" his mum into the interview with Martin Bashir.
Harry also condemned the media after Lord Dyson's inquiry made damning conclusions that the broadcaster covered up Bashir's "deceitful behaviour".
