Her final resting place: Lisa Marie Presley’s sarcophagus is unveiled at Graceland, as family prepares to bury tragic music heiress next to her son Ben and late father Elvis

  • Lisa Marie Presley’s tomb has been unveiled at Graceland a day ahead of her funeral on Sunday 
  • Her sarcophagus matches her son Benjamin’s, who she will be laid to rest next to and across from her famous father Elvis 
  • The family is expected to have a private ceremony ahead of the public service 

Lisa Marie Presley’s resting place has been unveiled at Graceland a day ahead of her funeral as her family prepares to lay her to rest next to her son and her famous father. 

Presley’s body will be on display to the public during her Sunday celebration of life at the family’s Graceland estate in Memphis. 

The singer and mother-of-four died last week after suffering from cardiac arrest twice, leaving behind her three daughters Riley, 33, and twins Finley and Harper, 14. 

Presley will be buried next to her son Benjamin, who took his own life in 2020, and across from her father’s Elvis’ plot around the backyard fountain.

Benjamin’s resting place had to be moved slightly to accommodate his mother’s. 

The plaque that will cover the gravesite is currently covered with a tarp for protection. 

The family is reportedly hosting a private ceremony ahead of the public one at 9am tomorrow. 

A stage has been constructed for the public service on the front lawn with a podium. Hundreds of seats have been set out around it and screens have been put up around the burial site.   

Yesterday, her daughter Riley posted a touching tribute post on Instagram for her mother – the first time she’s acknowledged her death. 

She posted a photo of her mother looking adoringly down at her as a small child while she gazed back with a soft smile on her face.

Presley’s oldest child simply captioned the heartbreaking post with a red heart.

Presley grew up fearing her own mortality after she found her father dead at the age of nine, traumatizing her. She often spoke of her own death and even referred to the backyard at the Graceland estate as a ‘graveyard.’

‘How many people have a family grave in the backyard? How many people are reminded of their fate, of their mortality, every f**king day? All the graves are lined up and there’s a spot there, waiting for me, right next to my grandmother,’ she told Playboy in 2003.

Despite her fear, the singer believed she had many more years to live last Sunday and told her friend David Kessler, who works as a grief counselor, that she had ‘so much to do.’

The pair were at the Graceland estate to celebrate what would have been Elvis’ 88th birthday and Presley, who rarely made public appearances since her son’s death, told the adoring crowd ‘you are the only people who can bring me out of the house.’

Several of the Presleys also died from heart conditions, including her own father, who died in 1977 at the age of 42 from cardiac arrhythmia with ventricular fibrillation – a condition where the heart beats abnormally and then stops.

Her grandmother, Gladys Love Presley, died at the age of 46 from heart failure, and her grandfather, Vernon Elvis Presley, died at 63 from cardiac arrest.
