The royal family is doing whatever it can to avoid another bombshell memoir from launching any further attacks on the palace, according to a royal expert.

Royal biographer Christopher Andersen, who penned “The King: The Life of King Charles III,” said the last thing senior members of the royal household want is “another kid writing a book” following the release of Prince Harry’s tell-all “Spare.”

“They have to think about George’s feelings in relation to his siblings. George has all this pressure,” Andersen told Us Weekly Monday, adding that Prince George, the second in line to the throne, will need to rely on his sister Princess Charlotte, 8, and his brother, Prince Louis, 5, for support later in life.

“He has these two siblings who can help him — who can ease some of the pressure and share some of the burden,” he added.

Andersen added that “by the same token, they don’t want to feel sidelined. They don’t want to feel invisible in his shadow.”

“The royal family does not want another kid writing a book… another edition of Spare,” Andersen added. “Obviously, Harry was very hurt by being in the shadow of his brother. I think they’re aware of that.”

The royal expert added that the “family dynamic” between George, 10, and his siblings “is much healthier than it normally would be in the royal family.”

It comes as the Duke of Sussex’s former biographer, Angela Levin, made the stern warning to the royals in a desperate bid to avoid George, the second in line to the throne, from walking a similar path to Harry.

“Kate and William are there to help him [George],” Levin told OK magazine. “But he needs to be kept away from Harry’s negative influence.”

“George doesn’t have a dysfunctional family, unlike William and Harry growing up, so he should fare better. Kate and William are there to help him. But he needs to be kept away from Harry’s negative influence,” she added.

In his protocol-shattering memoir, Harry detailed his experience of growing up in the palace as well as his fears about Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis growing up as “spares” to George.

“I still feel a responsibility knowing that out of those three children, at least one will end up like me, the spare. And that hurts, that worries me,” he wrote in his book, referencing William and Kate’s children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
