Priscilla Presley has said she has been ‘touched’ by all the love from fans following the death and subsequent memorial of her daughter, Lisa Marie Presley.

Presley died aged 54 on January 12 shortly after she was taken to hospital in cardiac arrest. Her death sparked an outpouring of grief and love from around the world.

On Sunday a public memorial for the singer-songwriter, the only child of Elvis, was held at her father’s Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tennessee.

It was attended by family members, fans, and friends including the Mayor of Memphis and the Duchess of York, with Elvis star Austin Butler joined by his girlfriend Kaia Gerber.

Priscilla shared a heartfelt message with her followers on Twitter on Tuesday, writing: ‘Thank you all for your condolences, you have touched me with your words.

‘It has been a very difficult time but just knowing your love is out there makes a difference.’

At the memorial, it was revealed that Presley was a grandmother to a baby girl after her daughter Riley Keough secretly welcomed her own daughter.

Presley was remembered as Memphis’s ‘precious jewel’, with her mother reading out poems written by the late star’s children.

‘Lisa Marie Presley was an icon, a role model, a superhero to many people all over the world,’ she said.

‘But mama was my icon, my role model, my superhero, and much more ways than one.’

The service also featured several musical tributes, including from Alanis Morissette, who delivered an emotional rendition of her song Rest.

Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose performed the band’s song November Rain, while Billy Corgan sang To Sheila by The Smashing Pumpkins.

Presley is to be buried at Graceland next to her son, Benjamin Keough, who died in 2020.

She is survived by eldest daughter Riley, 33, twins Finley and Harper, 14, with ex Michael Lockwood, and her mother Priscilla, 77.
