Queen 'reminded Barack of his gran', Michelle Obama says

Queen 'reminded Barack of his gran', Michelle Obama says

As noted by Fox News, the memoir's sales in the USA and Canada have exceeded 2 million copies in just the first 15 days from its release on November 15.

It marks a return visit for the former first lady, who heard girls at EGA perform in 2009 - months after her husband Barack Obama took office.

Mrs Obama also criticises the current President, Donald Trump, for his championing of the "birther" theory that her husband was not born in the U.S., so was not a legitimate president.

"It is our responsibility to have hope, and act with hope and lead with hope", Obama told 300 teenage students. "You don't have room to make mistakes", she said.

"When you're the first of anything, the bar feels higher".

Obama said that a focus on issues that she's passionate about not only helped others but ultimately had an impact on her own well-being.

"You reminded me of me, all the fears, the challenges you face".

"She's right you know", tweeted another. "So my biggest piece of advice would be to take some time and don't be in a hurry to do anything".

"So to welcome her back is so special".

Obama delivered her insights while on a European promotional tour for her new memoir, Becoming.

Obama's "Becoming" is flying off the shelves.

"The building was nothing special - a boxy brick building on a nondescript street". "As I settled into a folding chair onstage and started watching the performance ... something inside me began to quake".

She continued: "Overall, we are not seeing a major increase in female leadership in any industry or in any government in the world, and I think that's a shame".

The Obamas enjoyed a friendly relationship with the Windsors, their multiple relaxed and happy encounters with the royals seemingly going beyond the regular formalities afforded most presidents.

Barack Obama has called the Queen one of his "favourite" people.

A military veteran and Buckeye State native, I've written for the likes of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Atlanta Business Chronicle and the Detroit Free Press.

On one of the most fun days she had at the White House: "It's impossible to single out one day, because there were so many good ones, but something that always made me feel good was being around children and young people..."
