Unmasked: A rare glimpse of Michael Jackson's kids facesSince Michael Jackson's children were first unveiled from their masked existence a year ago, they haven't been seen since without their face covered.
But yesterday Prince Michael I, 12, and Paris Michael, 11, were seen enjoying the fresh air with their faces revealed to the world as they joined their famous father at a Los Angeles recording studio.
Not realising they could be seen from the street, Prince and Paris looked like regular pre-teens as they strolled through the car park.

It was only when they left the studio two hours later, they were wearing masks again.
Also joining the Jacksons at the building was High School Musical director Kenny Ortega, who is creative director of the star's This Is It UK tour.
Michael has been hard at work in recent weeks preparing for his 50-date residency at London's O2 Arena, which kicks off on July 13.
He recently upset fans when he postponed the first four dates by a week, meaning many are frantically trying to rearrange travel plans.
The Thriller singer has kept his children's lives shrouded in mystery since he first became a father in 1997.
