Priscilla Presley has confirmed that she wishes to be buried next to her late ex-husband Elvis at their Graceland estate in Memphis when she dies.
In a new clip released ahead of the airing of her interview with Piers Morgan Uncensored, Priscilla talks about her wishes for her burial at Graceland.
It comes as a judge today officially approved his settlement with his granddaughter Riley Keough over his late daughter Lisa-Marie’s will.
One of the details of the agreement is that Priscilla will be buried at Graceland, as close to the Elvis plot as possible.
Addressing the dispute in his interview, Piers probed Priscilla about the disagreement and what happened between her and Riley.
He said: ‘Deep down, it seemed pretty clear that Lisa-Marie had changed her will and hadn’t told you. By changing it, she had turned the administrators into her children, which is perfectly understandable, you just didn’t know it.
“So when she dies suddenly, tragically young, and all this comes to light, you were caught by surprise, or that’s what it seemed to me.”
Priscilla replied: ‘Yes, that’s it. I think Riley will be great, she’s asked me a few things like what to do with Graceland.
Piers asked: “There may be some problem with the fact that you will one day be buried at Graceland, with Elvis, do you want to clear that up?” What are your feelings?
Priscilla added: “My feelings are great, that’s what I want and wanted.”
Piers asked: “So you will be buried there?”, and she replied “yes.”
It comes after a judge approved Priscilla and Elvis’s granddaughter Riley’s settlement ten months after Lisa Marie’s death.
The two had reached an agreement months ago that resulted in the actress becoming the sole administrator of her late mother’s estate and owning the iconic Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tennessee.
Priscilla will receive a $1 million lump sum payment that was funded by Lisa Marie’s life insurance policy in the settlement recently officially approved by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge, according to documents obtained by People.
Additionally, her son Navarone Garibaldi will also be a beneficiary of Lisa Marie’s trust and perhaps most important of all, Priscilla will be buried near her ex-husband Elvis at Graceland when she passes away.
The publication obtained an unredacted copy of the agreement after Riley’s attorney, Justin Gold, requested it.
People reports that Priscilla will also be paid $100,000 a year for her role as special counsel “for her role as special counsel to the promenade trust related to her ownership interest in Elvis Presley Enterprises, a non-trust role.”
According to the paperwork, those payments will be distributed in monthly installments that are guaranteed for 10 years or Priscilla’s death, regardless of whether or not Riley ever ends his role as Priscilla’s special advisor.
Lisa Marie died IN January after going into cardiac arrest at her Calabasas home.
It was later learned that he died from a “small intestine obstruction” caused by bariatric surgery he had undergone, according to the autopsy.
In August, Riley was named sole administrator of the family estate, as she now owns Graceland, after a battle with her grandmother Priscilla.
The appointment was approved during a hearing today before Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Lynn Healey Scaduto, Deadline reported.
Her grandmother had filed a petition to challenge the validity of her late daughter Lisa Marie’s will in January.
The two had been at odds since Lisa Marie’s death. Riley is Elvis’ oldest surviving grandson; His brother Benjamin committed suicide three years ago and he has two 14-year-old half-sisters, Harper and Finley Lockwood.
The legal action challenged a 2016 amendment to Lisa Marie’s will that excluded Priscilla as a trustee of the estate.
Priscilla’s lawyers said she only learned of the amendment after her daughter’s death.
The amendment removed Priscilla and Lisa Marie’s former business manager, Barry Siegel, and replaced them with Lisa Marie’s children, Riley and Benjamin Keough.
Benjamin died in 2020 after shooting himself by suicide in the family mansion, and sources revealed that he had been struggling at the time.
