Prince Jackson shared a photo of his youngest brother Blanket, and fans can’t believe how grown-up the teenager is.

Prince Jackson went out with a big group of family and friends to watch “Avengers: End Game,” the 22nd and final film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
He made sure to immortalize the moment with an Instagram pic, and fans were surprised to catch a glimpse of his younger brother, Blanket, who’s rarely seen in family pics or events.
Prince, real name Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., can be seen kneeling on the far left of the picture, while Blanket, whose real name is Prince Michael Jackson II, is smiling from ear to ear in the center of the pic.

He’s still wearing long hair and rocked a graphic Marvel t-shirt for the occasion.
“#endgame,” Prince captioned the picture.
Fans were quick to fill his comment section to gush about his 17-year-old brother.
And a third one agreed, “Oh this Made me cry to see you guys all together.”
Also in the pic are Prince and Blanket’s cousins, TJ Jackson, the youngest son of Tito Jackson, Jaafar and Jermajesty, Jermaine Jackson’s sons, and Randy Jackson Jr., Randy’s son.
Paris Jackson was the big absent of the night.
Blanket, or Bigi as he’s known these days, is the most private out of the three kids of the late King of Pop. Paris is a model and singer, and Prince is working as a producer.
The teen must be on his final high school year, and reportedly still lives with his grandmother, Katherine Jackson at her mansion in Calabasas, California.

He is under the custody of Katherine, and co-guardian T.J. Jackson, Michael’s nephew.
Born to an unknown surrogate, Bigi first came into the spotlight while he was still a baby and Michael held him over the railing of a hotel balcony in Berlin while greeting his fans.

The “Smooth Criminal” singer earned a lot of backlash for his actions and later admitted he made a “terrible mistake,” adding that “I got caught up in the excitement of the moment. I would never intentionally endanger the lives of my children.”
Neither Prince nor Bigi have addressed the controversial HBO documentary “Leaving Neverland.”
Their sister Paris explained on Twitter that it was “not her role” to defend Michael from the sexual molestation allegations made by Wade Robson and James Safechuck in the documentary.
She explained that she was supporting her cousin Taj Jackson, who stood up for her father, and that she was trying to “get everyone to chill out and go with the flow, be mellow and think about the bigger picture. that’s me.”
