[an error occurred while processing this directive]London (ANI): Late King of Pop michael jackson is all set to make his final journey to his former home Neverland ranch, where his body will lie in state so that thousands of grieving fans can say their goodbyes. His coffin will be driven through Los Angeles, and will make a 130-mile journey to Neverland-the site of the superstar's former fantasy home.

It is believed that the 'Thriller' star's body will be displayed in a glass coffin on Friday, and might be buried at the ranch at the weekend. Reports have suggested that Jacko's coffin will make its last trip to his beloved playground home in an amazing fairytale carriage.

However, the Jackson family is not divulging any details about the white horse-drawn coach. The white horse-drawn coach is being kept under wraps until Jacko's coffin is tenderly lifted on to it. A Jackson family source revealed that they want Michael to 'look like a prince' as fans pay their last respects, and the carriage is set to be the focal point in part of the star's last journey.

It is expected that huge crowds of fans will come out to watch the King of Pop's coffin taken through the streets of Los Angeles on July 2. A 30-car motorcade will then make the drive to the remote 2,800-acre site of Neverland in Santa Barbara County.

Jacko, who died aged 50 on June 25, will lie in state for public viewing at his fantasy property on Friday. "Details are still being finalised. The family will make an announcement soon," British tabloid The Sun quoted a source as saying.

"The family want to give him a really special send off. They want the carriage to be a surprise for everyone. They want it to add a wow factor to the day. It is being kept hidden and is top secret. Thursday will be his final, grand journey from Los Angeles to Neverland. Friday will be the big public event, with fans able to pay their respects. Michael always said Neverland kept him young. It seems fitting. On Sunday there will be a memorial service for his family and close friends to mourn in private," added the source.
