Last week her bitter family feud between Priscilla, 77, over the multi-million dollar estate of the late Lisa Marie ended.
Lawyers for Elvis’ widow and Riley announced a Los Angeles probate court that the two had ‘reached a settlement.’
‘Riley is relieved to have settled the dispute over her mom’s estate. She doesn’t want any drama with her grandmother,’ an insider informed People.
Riley ‘is still grieving her mom,’ who died shockingly at the age of 54 in January after going into cardiac arrest at her Calabasas home.
When the legal tussle broke out between Riley and Priscilla, the former ‘was hoping they could reach a settlement quickly,’ the source added.
At Lisa Marie’s memorial service, Riley and her husband Ben Smith-Petersen went public with the arrival of their new baby daughter.
The People source shared that the outbreak of tension between grandmother and granddaughter ‘has been very tough for’ Riley.
‘She wants to focus on making memories with her own daughter now,’ the insider revealed to the magazine. ‘This is her priority.’
‘Priscilla is happy,’ her attorney Ronson Shamoun told DailyMail.com when the settlement was reached. ‘The families are happy and unified and together and excited for the future.’

Asked if Riley too was happy with the settlement, her attorney Justin Gold told DailyMail.com: ‘She would not have agreed to the settlement if she was not happy with it.’
Only two weeks after Lisa Marie’s death in January, her mother Priscilla filed a legal challenge to her daughter’s will – which gives control of Lisa Marie’s wealthy Promenade Trust to her daughter Riley.
Riley, who was reportedly furious when her grandmother went to court to protest the will, did not file an objection to Priscilla’s challenge.
And on Tuesday it became clear why: she and her grandmother had buried the hatchet and settled their differences.

It’s unlikely that the terms of their settlement will become known to outsiders. After announcing to LA Superior Court Judge Lynn Scaduto that there was an agreement between the two, Gold added that he planned to file a motion to seal the details of the settlement to keep them from the public eye.
The lawyers also declared in court Tuesday that the women had reached a settlement on a second trust involving Lisa Marie’s insurance policies – thought to total $35million.
Judge Scaduto scheduled a hearing August 4 for the court to give official approval of both settlements.
Riley always supported her mother during her drawn out, often nasty divorce and child custody disputes with her fourth husband, musician Michael Lockwood, 61, father of Lisa Marie’s twin, 14 year-old daughters, Finley and Harper.
It’s been reported that Priscilla and Lisa Marie were ‘barely speaking’ just before the latter’s death after Priscilla sided with Lockwood over custody of the twins.
Multiple sources told People that the mother and daughter were not on speaking terms, despite appearing at multiple events together, including the premiere for the Elvis biopic starring Austin Butler.
‘Riley was always on her mom’s side when it came to Michael (Lockwood),’ one source told the magazine. ‘It bothered her that her grandmother and Michael flew to (Lisa Marie’s) funeral together.’
Last month, a judge granted Lockwood’s petition to be appointed ‘guardian ad litem’ of Harper and Finley

Priscilla also helped Michael get into the ceremony at Elvis’s famous home, Graceland, despite her late daughter’s wishes.
‘Michael was not invited,’ a close friend of Lisa Marie told People. ‘He came to Memphis under the pretense that he had to chaperone the twins – and he forced his way in with Priscilla’s help.
‘The last thing Lisa Marie would have wanted was for Michael to be there.’
The rift between Riley and her grandmother began when Priscilla went to court – just days after Lisa Marie’s memorial service – to dispute her daughter’s decision in 2016 to change her will, remove Priscilla and her ex-manager Barry Siegel as trustees and replace them with Riley.
The will contains the rights to the Graceland mansion and a 15 percent stake in Elvis Presley Enterprises.
Lisa Marie also had two life insurance policies, one believed to be worth $25million and another one for $10million.
As well as replacing Priscilla as a trustee and cutting her out of the will, Lisa Marie’s 2016 amendment also named Riley’s brother Benjamin as the other trustee.
Benjamin however committed suicide in 2020, leaving Riley as sole named heir.
Priscilla’s challenging petition to the court questioned the ‘authenticity and validity’ of the trust, claiming that Lisa Marie’s signature was ‘inconsistent,’ and asked to be restored as a trustee.
The grandmother of four also claimed she was not aware Lisa Marie had changed the trust in 2016 until after her daughter passed away.

If Priscilla’s petition were granted, she and Riley would be made co-trustees of Lisa Marie’s estate.
Last month, Judge Scaduto granted Lockwood’s petition to be appointed ‘guardian ad litem’ of Harper and Finley – allowing him to represent the girls over their mother’s hotly-contested estate.
Harper and Finley are both beneficiaries of Lisa Marie’s trust while their father Lockwood is not.
But being declared their legal guardian gives him control over his daughters’ inheritance – at least until they reach adulthood at 18 – and his second chance to share in the Presley wealth after his first ended in a big fat zero in his divorce.
Lisa Marie – Elvis’ only child – filed for divorce from Lockwood in 2016 after 10 years of marriage. The two spent years fighting about finances and were still negotiating over child support for the twins up until her death.
Lockwood asked the divorce court in 2018 to order Lisa Marie to pay him $263,000 a year in spousal support so that he could ‘enjoy a lifestyle closer to my marital status of living’ – which included lavish entertaining, expensive vacations and flying on private jets.
