Priscilla Presley Remembers Ex-Husband Elvis On The 46th Anniversary Of His Death
Wednesday (August 16) was the 46th anniversary of Elvis Presley‘s death. He died at his Graceland estate in Memphis, Tennessee at the age of 42.
Graceland Honors Elvis On Anniversary Of His Passing
Each year, Graceland hosts “Elvis Week” around the anniversary of Elvis’ death. Fans gather from all over the world to watch performances, hear Elvis’ friends speak about his life, and to participate in the candlelight vigil in his honor.
“Thank you, Elvis. January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977” Graceland wrote on social media on the anniversary of Elvis’ death. They shared a photo of his gravesite, which visitors covered with flowers.

This year was also the first “Elvis Week” following the death of Lisa Marie on January 12. She was laid to rest in Graceland’s Meditation Garden next to her son, Benjamin Keough (who died in 2020).
Elvis, his parents, and his grandmother are also buried on the estate.

Priscilla shared her own tribute to Elvis on social media. She wrote:

May Elvis and Lisa Marie both rest in peace…
