Since their father’s death, a little over a year ago, Prince, 13, Paris, 12, and Blanket, 8, have said goodbye to their masks and veils and hello to more public appearances. In addition to Michael Jackson‘s memorial service, the children braved the crowd at the Grammys and, come this fall, they will attend a private school.
The children were homeschooled by private tutors in a classroom inside the family’s Encino estate ever since Jackson’s passing. Katherine Jackson, Michael’s mother and legal guardian of the children, has not identified the private school, but that she is ready for the children to branch out.
“I’d say I’m a little less strict but I’ve tried to follow the way Michael was raising them,” Jackson said. “But they don’t have friends. They don’t go to school. They have private lessons at home. They’ll be going to a private school in September for the first time.”
Prince, whose birth name is Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr. has shown a lot of interest in film making. As for Michael’s daughter, “Paris has that lovely way like Michael, and I see his talent in her. Whatever she does she’s very good at it. She’s a good artist and plays the piano. She wants to be an actress,” Jackson said.
