At least four senior staff members at Buckingham Palace have reportedly been made redundant as part of cost-cutting measures.
The Daily Mail said servants who had lost their jobs, some with young children, also faced losing their homes at the Royal Household, although a Palace spokeswoman denied the claim.
One source told the newspaper staff morale was at "rock-bottom - the worst I have ever known".
The newspaper also said Palace porters had their overtime stopped as part of the widespread cuts.
A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said costs were constantly reviewed and in "rare instances" staff were made redundant, but strongly denied claims of low morale.
As a public institution, scrutinised by Parliament, the Royal Household constantly reviews structures and staffing to ensure that it is run in the most effective and efficient way possible.
In rare instances this can involve redundancies; those affected are routinely offered a severance package and support, including retraining.
Internal surveys consistently show that employees are proud to work for the Royal Household and represent the Queen. Morale at Buckingham Palace continues to be high, with low staff turnover.

Investigators have been searching the home of a Royal Protection officer and a police building in the grounds of Buckingham Palace where ammunition was found.
Today's arrest came about as a result of an internal investigation by the Metropolitan Police.
The investigation, by the Directorate of Professional Standards, commenced a few weeks ago following the reporting by officers from Royalty Protection of ammunition found in their personal lockers or belongings.
Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said a reorganisation of the force's Protection Command had "revealed a few pockets of poor behaviour".
Metropolitan Police have said that the ammunition was found in personal lockers in a dedicated police building in the grounds of Buckingham Palace.
The officer arrested in connection with ammunition found in a locker area of Buckingham Palace was not assigned to guard any individual member of the Royal Family, police said.
The arrested officer is being questioned on suspicion of misconduct in public office and unlawful possession of ammunition.
He is in custody at a London police station and will be suspended from duty.
