Thomas Markle had told his daughter Meghan and her husband Prince Harry that this is the "worst time in the world to be whining" given the coronavirus pandemic. Thomas had called out Meghan and Harry and had said that he doesn't "really appreciate what Meghan has become" after the new biography 'Finding Freedom' spoke about the friction and tensions inside the royal family. 

While speaking to The Sun, Thomas said, "This is the worst time in the world for them to be whining and complaining about anything — because people everywhere are suffering due to the coronavirus pandemic."

"I love my daughter but I really don't appreciate what she's become right now," Thomas continued. Extracts from the book had been published on Sunday, July 26, where it claimed that Harry and Meghan had "rejected" the idea of getting some protection for her father as the coverage of her romance with Harry grew, according to a Daily Mail report. 

"The fact the royals advised them to get me help and they refused to do it is incredible news," Thomas shared referring to the matter. The 76-year-old was also mentioned in the book written by Omid Scoobie and Carolyn Durand. The book says that Meghan has not spoken to her father since he failed to attend her wedding to Harry.

Meghan had reportedly sent Thomas one final text message on the night before her wedding. Thomas has said that he was unable to attend the wedding as he had some heart problems. Meghan had done all she could to convince her father to come to the wedding including leaving many messages and making sure a car would take him to the LA airport so that he could fly to London for the ceremony. 

The book says that he had stopped responding to messages after she had called him "at least 20 times".  We had earlier reported that a spokesman for Harry and Meghan revealed that the couple had not contributed to the book but he did not deny the content of the extracts. The spokesman said, "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to 'Finding Freedom'."

Harry and Meghan are currently living in Tyler Perry's $18 million mansion in Los Angeles. Perry's mansion boasts of eight bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and is located on 22 acres on top of a hill in the exclusive Beverly Ridge Estates guard-gated community. The former editor of Vanity Fair called Harry and Meghan's move to LA a "terrible mistake" as he feels that Prince Harry doesn't fit there. While doing an interview with The Telegraph, Carter said, "Los Angeles is not a place for people who don't have a part in the professional firmament."

"Meghan was on a middling TV show that a lot of people didn't see, and as for Harry: being a soldier and liking football are just not saleable talents out there. You can get it right if you stay on message in LA," Carter added. He revealed how it is hard for the couple to lecture people regarding the state of the planet when they're "flying in private planes, living in a 14-bedroom Beverly Hills mansion and living off the state".
