The King of Pop's son, Prince Michael Jackson, 14, arrived in Berlin, Germany for an appearance at United Charity to auction off hand-written manuscripts of three of his father's biggest hits: "Bad," "Smooth Criminal," and "Billie Jean."

With the whole world fixated on the beginning of Michael Jackson's doctor's trial today (Sep. 27), Prince Michael is making his own headlines with charity work.

Wearing an exact replica of his father's wardrobe from the 1989 American Music Awards, Prince Michael ultimately came to support disadvantaged kids the same way his father did saying, "With everything I do, I try to build on what my father did. I also try to help and change things – just like he did.”

Bidding for the United Charity auction for those items will end on Nov. 10, and already the copy of "Bad" was up to $20,400.

Prince Michael left the festivities early because he had school work to catch up on, but the upcoming months may prove to be more taxing for the young student.

Starting today Michael Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray, 58, will be going on trial for the death of the late pop star on June 25 2009.

Direct witnesses, Prince Michael and his sister Paris, 12, were reportedly called into the room by Murray while he was trying to resuscitate their father.

"Dr. Murray summoned Prince to the room when MJ died. Why he did it, is still a question. But that's what Prince will talk about," an insider told FOX 411's Pop Tart Column.

The same source said, "Prince has already been prepped to take the stand and he's anxious to do so." But his legal guardian and grandmother, Katherine Jackson, feels this could be too "traumatic" for them.

If Murray is convicted, he would lose his medical license and possibly face a four-year prison term.

Jackson has a third child as well, Prince Michael II (Blanket) who is aged just nine.
