Michelle Obama has some simple advice for Meghan Markle.
The former first lady of the United States, 54, chatted with Good Housekeeping for their January issue and shared something she learned about being in the public eye during her time in the White House.
Obama said Markle should “take her time” when taking on more projects.
“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,” she said.
“So my biggest piece of advice would be to take some time and don’t be in a hurry to do anything. I spent the first few months in the White House mainly worrying about my daughters, making sure they were off to a good start at school and making new friends before I launched into any more ambitious work.”
“I think it’s okay — it’s good, even — to do that.”
Obama is currently on a book tour promoting her memoir Becoming.
