Elvis Presley’s Graceland share what Lisa Marie gets up to when visiting with her family

Elvis Presley: Priscilla and Lisa Marie discuss singer in 2012

Following Elvis Presley’s untimely death in 1977, Lisa Marie inherited Graceland alongside The King’s father Vernon and grandmother Minnie. Then just three years later aged only 12-years-old, she became the sole beneficiary named in her father’s will. Lisa Marie’s mother, Elvis’ ex-wife Priscilla Presley, acted as executor and decided to open Graceland as a museum to the public in 1982.

Despite now being one of the most popular museums and tourist attractions in the USA, Graceland is still very much Lisa Marie’s home.

And now the Vice President of Archives and Exhibits at Elvis Presley Enterprises and Graceland has shared what The King’s daughter and her family get up to when they visit the Memphis mansion.

Answering fan questions as part of a virtual live tour of Graceland that Express.co.uk attended, Angie shared: “Graceland is Lisa’s home whenever she is here.

“The kitchen appliances work, but she normally has meals catered in.”

Lisa Marie and her family have had Thanksgiving and Christmas together at Graceland in the past.

Angie also mentioned how Priscilla has joined for the latter as well.

But what about the mysterious and off-limits upstairs of Graceland? Do they sleep up there?

After all, Lisa Marie has a key to what she sees as her safe haven; where Elvis had his private space.

Angie shared: “They do love spending time here at Graceland but tend to actually sleep off property since we do still run tours even when they are in town.”

Back in April, the Graceland archivist gave more insight into what Lisa Marie gets up to when she visits.

During an Instagram live Q&A through the house, Angie said: “Yes, the family does still visit Graceland quite often. One of Lisa’s favourite things to do here is to actually share with her kids and her friends her memories of Graceland.

“And do things that Elvis and her used to do like ride golf carts or see the horses and things like that.”

Angie added: “But they do come quite often. This is still her home.”

While later on in the video, another fan asked about the half-century-old kitchen appliances.

Angie said: “Yes the kitchen appliances do work. They’re turned off for fire safety, but they do still work.

“And when Lisa Marie and her family are here we fire then up and sometimes they’ll have dinner here in the mansion.”

Tragically, Lisa Marie’s son Benjamin Keough died last year aged just 27-years-old.

Elvis’ only grandson, who looked a lot like The King, has been buried right by him in Graceland’s Meditation Garden.

His grave is on the other side of the fountain from Elvis, Vernon, Gladys and Minnie’s final resting places.

Graceland’s virtual live tours, which include a chance to pay respects in the Meditation Garden, can be booked here.
