The siblings have remained close since Michael Jackson's death
Michael Jackson‘s daughter Paris has shared a rare home video of her brother Prince, to mark his birthday.
The two siblings, along with their 15-year-old brother Prince Michael Jackson II (known as Blanket), have remained close since their father’s death in 2009.
Writing on Instagram in celebration of Prince’s birthday, Paris said: “my dearest brother. i could fly to the moon and back a thousand times and the distance still wouldn’t amount to how much i adore you. i’ve always looked up to you, and to this day you’re still the greatest role model i could ever hope for. i miss these days where we could wrestle and i’d still have a chance at winning, though. i miss playing hot wheels and my little pony with you, i miss fighting like pirates and trying to cast spells with our harry potter wands. i miss the saturdays where we would sleep in and eat porridge and OJ and watch gargoyles and transformers (and sometimes cartoons in arabic?), and staying up late listening to you tell us wild bed time stories that always had a crazy twist at the end.”
She continued: “you’ve always been my best friend in the whole wide universe and i’m so lucky to have you in my life. i couldn’t have wished for our friendship to turn out any better. we may not have our water guns and crash bandicoot, but we have so much more. you’re the most fun, genuine, determined and hilarious person i know. and it makes ma soul happy to know dat i can always count on you, and no matter where we are in the world and in life, my home is with you and the little guy. i love you so much, gooko. i’m so proud of you. happy birthday.”

Last year, a video of Paris singing proved she had vocal chops not to dissimilar to her father’s.
The 19 year old daughter of the iconic popstar performed at Soho House in West Hollywood with her cousin and fellow Jackson family member Austin Brown. Singing Brown’s track ‘Smile’, Paris chimed in with some Jackson-esque falsetto over the chorus.
Thank God for the Jackson family! Can’t imagine a world without your Loving contributions!” commented one user under the video.
In August, Paris used a speech at the MTV VMA awards to call out “nazi, white supremacist jerks” in the wake of racial tension in Charlottesville, Virginia.
“We must show these nazi, white supremacist jerks, in Charlottesville and all over the country, that as a nation with liberty as our slogan, we have zero tolerance for their violence, their hatred and their discrimination.”

“We must resist,” she said, before presenting the award for Best Pop Video.
