Mrs Obama is now in the United Kingdom promoting her book where an appearance in London's South Bank Centre tonight has been sold out for weeks. The memoir sold more than 2 million copies in all formats in the United States and Canada in its first 15 days, according to a statement by Penguin Random House.

The publisher says the book is also a bestseller in many other countries including Australia and Britain.

Although US president Donald Trump was not referred tow by name, Mrs Obama did refer to "the bitterness, the nastiness that we see in politics".

Speaking ahead of today's event, Elizabeth Garrett Anderson's executive headteacher Jo Dibb said: "It's really exciting to welcome Mrs Obama back to EGA".

Obama realized her faux pas straight away, remarking: "I forgot where I was for a moment!"

"Michelle Obama was PHENOMENAL at Barclays".

Recalling one of her first trips to London as the first lady, Obama said it was "incredibly irritating" that British journalists, including women journalists, focused on what she was wearing rather than on the work she was trying to do.

"Your task is to get yourself ready because people will try to hold you back ... it will crush you if you are not ready".
