Jackson’s son Prince Michael, 13, and daughter Paris, 12, were sent by their grandmother Katherine, 80, after she complained: “They have no friends.”

The children, kept hidden from the public while Jackson was alive, have been enrolled at The Buckley School in California’s San Fernando Valley, a prestigious private day school that boasts of Paris Hilton and “Friends” actor Matthhew Perry as former pupils, reports thesun.co.uk.

Jackson’s youngest child, eight-year-old Blanket, is continuing to be taught at home and friends say he too will soon be attending classes.

Katherine, who is taking care of all three, wants them to have a normal life.

”They are such bright kids. They have adjusted very well to the loss of their father and are definitely ready for this step. Prince wants to be a movie director and Paris wants to be an actress,” said a family source.
