The former US leaders traveled down to the billionaire Virgin executive’s Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands shortly after Obama handed the White House over to Donald Trump.
Upon greeting Branson on the Caribbean island, Michelle Obama told him, ‘We’re free’, and told his staff to call her and her husband by their first names rather than their formal titles.

‘It’s so nice to have my name back after eight years’, Branson recalled Michelle Obama saying in his new book, Finding My Virginity, which also mentions his other famous friends including Bill Gates and the late Nelson Mandela.
Branson said that at the end of their ten-day trip, the Obamas treated his staff to a thank you party.
They were ‘dancing with us, getting the party going, making everybody feel at home and welcome’, Branson wrote in the book.
