Prince Harry’s emotional trailer for a TV show that includes footage of his mother’s funeral has sparked fears of another attack on Prince Charles.
Sources say royal aides are concerned over what he will say about his relationship with his dad following his explosive Oprah Winfrey interview and appearance on a US podcast last week.
The mental health film teaser shows the then 12-year-old Duke of Sussex as Princess Diana’s coffin passes by.
And Prince Charles can be seen speaking to his son as a female voice says over music: “Treating people with dignity is the first act.”
Harry teams up again with chat show host Winfrey and is heard telling her: “To make that decision to receive help is not a sign of weakness. In today’s world, more than ever, it is a sign of strength.”

The trailer for The Me You Can’t See was released on Monday on Harry and wife Megan’s Archewell website.
It comes just days after he appeared to suggest his father, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh had failed as parents, while the family is still mourning Philip.
Speaking on the Armchair Expert podcast, Harry, 36, said he wanted to “break the cycle” of “genetic pain and suffering” for the sake of his children.
He said of Charles: “He’s treated me the way he was treated, so how can I change that for my own kids?”
A source added: “There is concern given the Duke and Duchess’s recent claims as to just what they may have said to Winfrey. They have not held back in their allegations and there is nothing to suggest they won’t make further ones.”
The Apple TV+ series begins on Friday.
Singer Lady Gaga, actress Glenn Close and basketball star DeMar DeRozan also appear in the trailer.
Gaga, Close and Winfrey appear close to tears as they discuss their mental health experiences. Winfrey says: “It’s just something I accepted.”
Meghan makes a brief appearance in the trailer, coming into shot at Harry’s side. She is seen smiling and wearing a T-shirt printed with the slogan “Raising the Future”.
The Sussexes’ son Archie is also shown sitting on his mum’s lap in footage filmed around the time of his first birthday.
Harry and Winfrey have joined forces to guide “honest discussions about mental health and emotional wellbeing while opening up about their personal journeys and struggles”, the Archewell website said.
The Duke adds: “The results of this year will be felt for decades. The kids, families, husbands, wives, everybody.”

Harry and Winfrey are co-creators and executive producers of the project.
The Sussexes made a series of damaging allegations about the Royal Family when they were interviewed
by Winfrey back in March.
The couple accused an unnamed royal – not the Queen or Prince Philip – of raising concerns about how dark their son’s skin tone would be before his birth.
Meghan also said she asked for help when she was suicidal but claimed the monarchy gave her no support.
Harry has spoken of the emotional turmoil he faced after his mother was killed in a Paris car crash in 1997.
He said he spent nearly two decades “not thinking” about her death before eventually getting help after a period of “total chaos”.
Prince cashes in on family he shuns’
– Comment by Russell Myers, Mirror Royal Editor
The image of young Prince Harry walking behind his mother’s coffin, his face etched with pain, is hard to forget.
Recently he has cut ties with his family and taken to airing grievances about them to journalists and TV hosts.
Now, as he pockets £100million from Netflix, the contradictions are flowing thick and fast.
Days after comparing his old life to living in a zoo, he’s using his mother’s legacy to expand his profile.
But as he used the derogatory term “bonkers” in his Oprah interview, mental health crusader Harry may find the path to righteousness is a bumpy one.
