Michelle Obama's advice for Meghan Markle: 'Don't be in a hurry'

Michelle Obama's been dropping some truth bombs during her massive, Becoming book tour, but it was her comments about the call for women to "lean in" that inspired some serious applause in Brooklyn over the weekend.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama may have left the White House, but she continues to rack up magazine covers - and dole out candid personal reflections.

Recalling another time she broke protocol, Mrs Obama said: 'This is just how it feels to be at these high levels where people are talking protocol to protocol, that is how these big foreign exchanges are.

While her time in the White House was often stressful, Obama also found joy and meaning in her work.

Obama repeated the claim she made in her best-seller, which was released last month, saying that she only went along with her spouse's campaign because "deep down, I was like: 'There's no way he's going to win'".

"It hurts me deeply that one of the sweetest young women anyone could hope to meet is being trashed and bashed at every turn by a British establishment hellbent on belittling her". She spoke there about visiting Windsor Castle in 2016 together with her husband, who was the United States president then.

"Marriage still ain't equal, y'all", Obama said to a crowd gathered in Brooklyn on Saturday for a leg of her worldwide book tour, several news outlets reported.

"This is how I picture Auntie Mich in er'yday convo cause she's a real one", wrote another. "I always thought love was up close". "I'm like, 'Duh.' Marriage is hard, you know". Alright, I'm back now.

"It is impossible to forget that she, like numerous female friends she quotes, is a wealthy, white, married woman with a 'vast support system, '" wrote critic Connie Schultz for the Washington Post.

The 54-year-old has been candid about her experiences since she began promoting her new book.

Obama added, "I'd walk away from those events so hopeful. So oftentimes it's not equal and you feel a bit resentful and so then it's time to go to marriage counseling".

"Part of what we have to do is expose them to the opportunities".

Right now, that vision is a pipe dream - experts say even women such as Sandberg who have pioneered paths that make "leaning in" seem possible fall under scrutiny their male counterparts somehow avoid when their companies are in crisis.

"As much as I wish that could happen in four years, I don't think that's a likely time period", said Sandberg.
