Content duplication (embedded Word) when copying worksheet

Dear Aspose Support Team

We have a template excel file (Template.xlsx) which contains a worksheet with an embedded Word document. We would like to copy this worksheet into a new workbook (Result.xlsx).
When doing this, however, the content of the embedded Word document is duplicated: a picture with the content of the embedded Word document is shown on top of the actual embedded Word document content.
Why does this happen? How can we prevent this? We only want the actual embedded Word document content in the result file, no additional picture.

This is the code we are using to copy the worksheet:

workbook = new Workbook();

Workbook templateWorkbook = new Workbook(TEMPLATE_FILE);
Worksheet sourceSheet = templateWorkbook.getWorksheets().get(TEMPLATE_SHEET);
int index = workbook.getWorksheets().add();
Worksheet newSheet = workbook.getWorksheets().get(index);
