Prince William is said to be "sick" of the drama surrounding the royal family, it has been reported.
It comes following a number of comments made by the Duke of Cambridge's brother Prince Harry this year which have brought a number of matters into the public eye.
And now, members of the royal family are said to be sick of everything "being played out so publicly", with reports suggesting it is a particular annoyance to Prince William.
"The royal family, especially Prince William, is sick of all the drama being played out so publicly," a source reportedly told InTouch Weekly magazine.
Prince Harry is set to return to the UK and make a public appearance with his brother at the unveiling of a statue of their late mum Princess Diana, which will be held at Kensington Palace on July 1, on what would have been her 60th birthday.
And while they are expected to show a united front at the event, it is reported that the royals are "bracing for a showdown behind closed doors".
The source added: "They’ve agreed to put their issues [aside] in public, but behind closed doors, everyone is bracing for a showdown.

This year the Duke of Sussex has appeared in an interview alongside wife Meghan Markle with Oprah Winfrey, in which the Sussexes made a series of bombshell claims about the royal family during their chat with the US TV legend.
They included allegations that Kate Middleton made her new sister-in-law Meghan cry, as well as revelations that the Duchess of Sussex had suicidal thoughts and that there were concerns within the Palace about "how dark" their baby would be.
He also appeared on The Late Late Show With James Corden where he spoke about his need to get his family out of the "toxic" environment they were in during their life in the UK.
While discussing his life in his new Apple TV+ documentary series The Me You Can't See the Duke revealed: "Cause my father used to say to me when I was younger, he used to say to both William and I 'Well it was like that for me so it’s gonna be like that for you'.

"That doesn’t make sense. Just because you suffered, that doesn’t mean that your kids have to suffer. In fact quite the opposite, if you’ve suffered, do whatever you can to make sure that whatever experiences, negative experiences you had, that you can make it right for your kids."
He also said he moved Archie and Meghan to the US to "break the cycle" of "genetic pain and suffering" from his own childhood in an appearance on the Armchair Expert podcast with Dax Shepard.
