Yes I uninstalled WhatsApp from the new device and when reinstalled today it said backup available from this morning but it didn't bring everything in.
It didn't load any messages??
Tried uninstalling and trying again?

You do have to click on the backup and restore it from there.

If you properly uninstalled it, and restored it from today's backup then that doesn't make much sense.
Try again it can't hurt.

Asking to restore from Google drive makes sense? I didn't save anything there

On which phone?
Just make sure the latest GDrive backup is from the phone with all your messages, then restore from GDrive on the new phone

The old original phone, no idea how to do gdrive backup, I assumed that if WhatsApp does backup then it should bring everything in till today.

Gotta be more specific. Which phone and which backup the local or with GDrive?

Go in your backup settings and make sure GDrive is configured.

The new phone this morning when I tried to reinstall it showed last backup this morning but it didn't bring everything in.
So now I should go to old phone look for back up to google? Why is the WhatsApp backup not bringing in latest? backup

Yes.
It's possible it backed up the new phone, so the "latest" backup won't include all massages.
