With royal rumors continuing to dominate the tabloids, Meghan Markle still seems to do what she loves most: to work (much to the apparent horror of some royal helpers). In fact, on Monday evening, the Duchess of Sussex allegedly even held a secret "power meeting" with Michelle Obama to discuss important reasons and issues that both women are working on.
As reported by Evening Standard Meghan and Michelle met in private function – which means that it was not an official royal meeting – on Monday night in London, while the former First Lady in the The city was to promote their new memoirs, Becoming . The couple is said to have met to discuss their "common" concerns, including promoting girls' education around the world. Per Standard :
A friend who also participated in the event said Meghan "has a long private audience with Michelle. They spoke at length about the importance of supporting and empowering women in all cultures and communities. They also talked about shared experiences with pregnancy and parenting as well as common causes, including girls' education.
The meeting took place after the former First Lady's book visit at the Royal Festival Hall, a sold-out event where an event took place between her and the writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. The standard states that Meghan was present during the event and the women chatted backstage . The "friend" in the report said that the two women had a strong bond and would likely stay in "close contact", and Meghan said she felt "welcome" in London.
Prince Harry met with the Obama several times – and even interviewed former President Barack Obama, while last year was guest editor of BBC Radio 4. In addition, prior to the "Power Meeting," Michelle Meghan publicly gave advice on how to handle life in the limelight (take your time and do not take any steps). We can only hope that Meghan and the former First Lady will soon be in the public eye.
