Michelle Obama: 'I still have imposter syndrome'

Meghan Markle wanted to make changes to the St George’s chapel before her wedding to Prince Harry

Earlier this year, Obama was named the world's second-most admired woman, behind Angelina Jolie, in a YouGov poll, but she said she still sometimes questioned if she was good enough.

"This is true for women, this is true for working-class people but it is profound for women of colour in a way that I don't think most people understand".

"He doesn't play games fellas, that's a very attractive quality", she said.

She went on to say that choosing projects is important and is to be done wisely.

Even Sandberg herself acknowledged that "leaning in" didn't really benefit women in the years after her book became a best-seller, and after her husband passed away, she wrote that she had never realized just how hard it is to be a single mother, and how many institutions are created to work against their professional successes.

Obama said that marriage should be hard work, given it involves two independent individuals coming together to build a life forever - also, she was blunt about how kids can cause havoc on a relationship.

She added, "That's a lie".

Obama will speak on Monday evening at the Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall about her memoir released last month.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has extended her hand of support to the Duchess of Sussex and offered some valuable advice about handling the spotlight, by drawing on her own experience after entering the White House with her husband.

Obama said her visit to the London school in 2009 inspired her to use her time in the White House to campaign for education for all girls as well as work to combat childhood obesity. I thought I wanted to be a lawyer because I didn't really know what I wanted to do after college so I applied to law school, went to harvard, thought "well that should be good" and turns out I hated law.

She said: "Why is that?"

Michelle Obama has criticised Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg's "lean-in" feminist mantra, telling an audience "that s**t doesn't work all the time".

"Practice that kind of sisterhood", Michelle Obama said.

While the duchess was heaped with praise from royal fans during her recent tour of Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji, things have taken a sudden turn for the worse in the headlines over the past few weeks amid sensational claims the mother-to-be is having problems with Catherine. I grew up where I trusted men to take care of me. The next phase, Ii want to sit down and hear, particularly from young people, what is resonating and I think i'll learn something more about the next phase based on what's resonating.

She told them: "We as women don't have the luxury of tearing each other down, there are enough barriers out there".
