Harry and Meghan have denied having anything to do with the biography, though questions about their participation have been raised by the high level of detail in the book. 

Mr Markle told the Sun: ‘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.’

In an extract from the book published on Sunday, it claims that Harry and Meghan  had ‘rejected’ the idea of getting help to protect her father as coverage of their romance grew. 

Mr Markle said: ‘The fact the royals advised them to get me help and they refused to do it is incredible news.’ 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s biography is already the bestselling book on Amazon UK, two weeks ahead of its release.

Finding Freedom, by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, is not released until August 11 but is already top of the media giant’s bestsellers list as royal fans rush to pre-order their copy. The book is at number 14 on the US chart at the time of writing.

Scobie and Duran they have spoken to more than 100 sources including ‘close friends of Harry and Meghan’s, royal aides and palace staff (past and present)’, with all the information in the book having ‘at least two sources.’

Extraordinary personal details littered throughout Finding Freedom include particulars of the moment the Meghan confessed she wrote her estranged father Thomas one final message while on FaceTime in a bathtub.

The book also claims that Meghan has not spoken to her father since he failed to attend her wedding. 

A heartbroken Meghan sent Mr Markle one final text on the night before her wedding, the book claims.

Mr Markle didn’t attend the wedding and was unable to walk her down the aisle. 

This was despite Meghan’s desperate attempts to persuade him to attend.   

She reportedly left dozens of frantic messages for her father, even telling him a car would take him to Los Angeles airport so he could fly to London for the ceremony.

But despite the ‘barrage of voicemails and texts’, he refused to get in the waiting vehicle.

Finding Freedom then says he stopped responding to messages after she called him ‘at least 20 times’.

Mr Markle eventually said the stress of dealing with the media had caused him to have a heart attack.
