Michael Jackson's son Prince has revealed that he thinks his father would have supported the campaign to free Britney Spears.
Appearing on Thursday's Good Morning Britain, 24-year-old Prince spoke to hosts Adil Ray and Charlotte Hawkins live from Los Angeles about his philanthropic work and continuing his father's legacy.
Adil and Charlotte were keen to hear Prince's thoughts on the Free Britney movement, which has seen fans campaign to free her of a conservatorship.
When asked about how his father would view the movement and Britney Spears’ bid to have her conservatorship ended, Prince said: "That’s a very tough question just because I don’t like to put words in my father’s mouth.
"I can’t say that I ever heard him mention anything about that and obviously this is something that’s really come to light in recent years, but knowing my father and the compassion that he had for individuals who wanted to remain in control of their own life as it was his goal to be in control of his own life, I would think that he would be very supportive of her cause.
"And he would understand the place that she’s coming from, and I think he would wholeheartedly support her," he added.
Prince, the eldest of Jackson’s three children, also said he still hears his father’s voice when doing philanthropic work, such as hosting the annual Thriller Night Halloween party at the family’s estate.
He said: “That is really when I hear my father’s voice the most because those are the times when you struggle the most.
“You almost wonder, ‘How can I continue to keep doing this?’ and it is during those moments that I hear him, like: ‘Somebody has to do it, you have to do it, you have to keep pushing forward and it is important that we do this'.
"He is always on my shoulder, in my ear, motivating me to keep that moral compass pointing north."
Jackson, one of the most influential musicians thanks to his era-defining albums and live performances, died in 2009 aged 50 following an overdose of the anaesthetic propofol.
