Prince Charles & # 39; s staff stopped actors from Netflix drama The Crown attending a star-studded event alongside him, Prince William and Harry, was claimed today.

The premiere at the Natural History Museum marked the launch of the eight-part Netflix environmental series Our Planet by Sir David Attenborough.

Other celebrities present were David Beckham, singer Ellie Goulding, Camilla Thurlow from Love Island and presenter Konnie Huq, wife of Brooker.

A royal source told The sun: & # 39; Charles's staff is deeply paranoid about The Crown. They try to make him a popular waiting king.

& # 39; But the coming seasons will increasingly focus on the Prince of Wales behavior, especially around his marriage to Diana and affair with Camilla. & # 39;

The source then claimed to the newspaper that Charles & # 39; s staff made it clear that he would not be attending the event if Netflix had one of The Crown actors there & # 39 ;.

Palace staff confirmed that a decision had been made to ban stars from The Crown for the event, but insisted that Charles was not aware of the move.

Another source told MailOnline: & # 39; This decision was made with Netflix and all royal households during the screening to not distract the promotion of the Attenborough series.

& # 39; This had nothing to do with the upcoming series of The Crown that had not yet entered production at that time. & # 39;

It was also claimed that it would be difficult to see the relevance of the presence by The Crown cast and would be a distraction for the ultimate messages from Our Planet & # 39 ;.

Josh O & # 39; Connor, star of Les Misérables, will portray Charles, while Emerald Fennell of Call the Midwife plays Camilla in season three, shown on November 17.

A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace said: “The guest list was determined jointly. It is wrong to claim that the Prince of Wales intervened personally. & # 39;

The eight-part series presented by 93-year-old Sir David brought an openly ecological message about exploring the natural world and how to protect it.

Charles, who is president of WWF UK, and his two sons attended the premiere in April to underline the support of the Royal Family for action against climate change.

In a speech, Charles said that he & # 39; was enormously moved to be asked here with my two sons tonight to launch this truly remarkable series & # 39 ;.

He added that Sir David & # 39; had done so much to lift the veil of ignorance from our eyes over the integrated and innate beauty of our home & # 39 ;.
