Viewers Can't Believe How 'Down To Earth' Michael Jackson's Son Is

Michael Jackson's eldest son Prince has taken part in his first ever UK TV interview today, when he appeared on This Morning.

The 20-year-old son of the late singer, spoke to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield about Heal LA, the charity he founded, and what it was like growing up.

Prince, who has siblings Paris, 19, and Blanket, 15, was asked by Holly what it was like growing up with Jackson, who valued privacy so much.

Holly said: "Protecting your privacy was hugely important to him and we would see the images of you and your siblings with masks covering your face. How did he explain it to you? Or was that just so normal you didn't question it?"

To which he replied: "I'm a very private person and only reveal what I like to reveal. That's why I went into production. It's behind the camera."

I think it's fair to say that Prince probably had an unconventional upbringing and then had to deal with losing his dad while just 13 can't have been easy.

However, he seems to have come through all that and viewers couldn't believe how 'articulate' and 'down to Earth' he is.

Heal LA, which is dedicated to Michael and named after his hit 'Heal The World', was set up to combat issues that blight the city, including homelessness, child abuse and hunger and food poverty.
