Lisa Marie Presley, who died last week of cardiac arrest, was buried at Elvis’ Graceland estate. The 54-year-old only child of Elvis Presley was laid to rest next to her son Benjamin Keough, who committed suicide in 2020 at the age of 27.

Benjamin’s grave in the Graceland Meditation Garden in Memphis was “moved slightly” to make room for his mother, a representative for the late Presley told Page Six.

They are also buried at Graceland Elvis Presley and his parents Vernon and Gladys. Lisa Marie will be honored Sunday with a memorial service open to the public.

Meanwhile, her eldest daughter, an actress, spoke today for the first time since Presley’s sudden death on January 12 Riley Keough. The 33-year-old posted a black-and-white photo of herself as a child on Instagram, gazing lovingly at her mother with a bouquet in her hand. At the same time, she merely added a heart. Many celebrities and fans express their condolences under the post.

In addition to Riley, Lisa Marie had Riley, who was born in her first marriage with Danny Keough14-year-old twins Finley and Harper, who were born to her in a relationship with a guitarist Michael Lockwood. She was very close to her son Benjamin, so his son’s death hit her extremely hard.

After going into cardiac arrest at her home in Calabasas, California, Lisa Marie was resuscitated and rushed to the hospital, where she suffered another arrest and eventually died, along with her mother Priscilla Presley.

“It is with a heavy heart that I have to share the difficult news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” said 77-year-old Priscilla, who was married to Elvis between 1967 and 1973.

“My daughter was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known. We ask for your privacy at this time as we try to cope with this profound loss. Thank you for your love and prayers.”
