Presley will be buried at Graceland next to her late son, Benjamin Keough, who died by suicide in 2020, according to a family spokesperson. Elvis, the King of Rock and Roll, is also buried at Graceland, along with his parents and grandmother, People magazine noted.
Lisa Marie was the only daughter of Elvis and Pricilla and the sole inheritor of Graceland. At 9 years old, she was given the estate in a trust that was officially dissolved when she turned 25, according to the Graceland website. In 1993, she gained total ownership of the mansion.
The property will go to Lisa Marie’s three daughters.
“The mansion is in a trust that will go to the benefit of her [Presley’s] children,” a spokesperson for Graceland told WMC.
Lisa Marie’s mother, Priscilla, confirmed her death on January 12 hours after she was rushed to a hospital.
“My beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” a statement from her mother read. “She was the most passionate strong and loving woman I have ever known. We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers. At this time there will be no further comment.”
