"So I had all this protocol buzzing in my head, and I was like 'don't trip down the stairs and don't touch anybody, whatever you do,' " Obama said. "And so the Queen says 'just get in, sit wherever' and she's telling you one thing and you're remembering protocol and she says 'Oh it's all rubbish, just get in.' "
 
Obama also revealed that her husband, former President Obama, is a "huge fan" of the queen.
 
"She's smart and funny and honest," Michelle Obama said.
 
The former first lady was in London as part of a promotional tour for her memoir "Becoming," which hit shelves last month and quickly became the best-selling hardcover book of 2018.
