When two widely respected women link up, great things are bound to happen. Such was the case Monday evening when Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, attended former first lady Michelle Obama's book tour stop at London's Royal Festival Hall.
Following the first lady's appearance, which was moderated by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Obama and the Duchess held a "power meeting," an anonymous source told the Evening Standard. A friend who attended the lecture with the Duchess claimed Markle "had a long private audience with Michelle."
"They spoke at length about the importance of supporting and empowering women across all cultures and communities," the friend disclosed to The Standard.
The famous women also exchanged pregnancy stories and anecdotes on raising children, The Telegraph reports. In October, Kensington Palace announced the Duchess is pregnant with her first child, which is due spring 2019.
While Obama and Markle's husband, Prince Harry, have interacted before, this was the first meeting between the two ladies.
This encounter comes fresh off the advice the former FLOTUS publicly shared with the newest member of the Royal Family.
"Like me, Meghan probably never dreamt that she'd have a life like this, and the pressure you feel — from yourself and from others — can sometimes feel like a lot," the Becoming author said in Good Housekeeping's January issue. "So my biggest piece of advice would be to take some time and don't be in a hurry to do anything."
