The 'King of Pop' met the People's Princess in the late eighties backstage at Wembley Stadium. As reported by Daily Mail, Prince shared wholesome memories from how his father remembered Diana and always held her dear in his heart. "Every time my father used to speak about his relationship with her it was filled with so much love, but also at the same time sorrow because he had lost a friend that was so near and dear to his heart," said the 25-year-old.

He remembered how his father felt he had a lot in common with the princess who was equally loved by the people as he said, "He just felt like, as he explained it to me, that he felt connected to her in a way that he didn't really have those connections with other people." He then added, "I think that, based off of what he was telling me, they kind of fed off each other in the sense that this love was communal, and he loved how she loved and he loved how she tried to be a great mom to her children and how she wanted to just be a good person." According to Prince, his father felt a connection with her because Michael himself wanted to be a great parent and a good person as he said, "And that was all that he was about. He wanted to be a great father, and he wanted to be a great person."

Prince Jackson, who was born just months before Princess Diana's death, did not have an opportunity to witness their friendship, however, from the way his father remembered his dear friend, he was able to grasp the great friendship shared by the two. "And I felt like there was just so much synergy there. And when he would speak about her it was with so much love, but also some sorrow because he had lost such a good friend."
