Who Gets Graceland After Lisa Marie Presley Dies? Elvis Presley's home will go to her daughters

The world is still reeling from the sudden death of Elvis Presley's only child, Lisa Marie Presley, from cardiac arrest on January 12 . The public will be able to say goodbye to the late musician at a scheduled public memorial service on Sunday, January 22 at 9 a.m. on the front lawn of Elvis Presley’s legacy, Graceland.

The location in Memphis, Tennessee will also be her final resting place. According to People , Presley will be buried in the Meditation Garden at Graceland next to her son Benjamin, who died in 2020. The estate is also the final resting place of the King of Rock and Roll himself, his parents Gladys and Vernon and his grandmother Minnie Mae.

In a 2013 interview with Entertainment Tonight , Presley already shared what will happen once she no longer has Graceland. "It's absolutely 100 percent mine and it's always been mine, Graceland," she began. "That's how it's always going to be. When it's no longer mine, it's going to be my children's. That's it."

This is exactly what will happen. On January 17, a family representative confirmed to Bustle that Graceland will be inherited by Presley's daughter Riley Keough (33) and twins Harper Lockwood (14) and Finley Lockwood (14). Riley is Presley's daughter with her first husband, Danny Keough, while Harper and Finley Lockwood are her daughters with Presley's fourth husband, Michael Lockwood. Although she filed for divorce in 2016, it was not legalized until 2021.

According to Graceland's official website, after Elvis' death in 1977, Presley became the sole heir to Elvis' estate. His father and grandmother died in 1978 and 1980 respectively. The property was held in a trust which was dissolved when she was 25 years old. Presley later formed a new trust, the Elvis Presley Trust, and appointed Priscilla Presley and National Commerce Bank as co-trustees.

In 1982, the family opened Graceland to the public for tours, and it has since become a National Historic Landmark. According to the website, Graceland welcomes more than 500,000 visitors annually and contributes significantly to Memphis' tourism industry.

Elvis died when Presley was nine, and in 2013, Presley appeared on The Talk to recall growing up with his father in their Graceland home. "He and I spent a lot of time together upstairs. The upper floor of Graceland was basically his room in my room, so we spent a lot of time there," she added. "He put a little chair and a TV in my room and was in my room regularly."

"That's when I was really, you know, with him."
