Lisa Marie Presley's public memorial underway as she is laid to rest beside dad Elvis

A public memorial for Lisa Marie Presley is being held today at 3pm UK time, where her family, friends and fans will be able to pay tribute to the late singer.

It is believed that Lisa Marie was laid to rest besides her famous father Elvis at her childhood home in Tennessee at a private ceremony before the public memorial today.

It has been previously announced that Lisa Marie would be buried at Graceland next to her late son, Benjamin Keough, who died in 2020.

The daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley suffered a suspected cardiac arrest on the 12 January, and later passed away in a Californian hospital at the age of 54.

Announcing her death, Priscilla said: “It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us.

“She was the most passionate strong and loving woman I have ever known.

"We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers. At this time there will be no further comment.”

Lisa Marie's memorial will take place at her father's Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tennessee - on the front lawn of the famous estate.

However, if you are unable to attend the service in person, then you can watch online via Graceland's livestream page.

Ahead of the memorial, Lisa Marie's family have thanked friends, family and fans for the 'outpouring of love' following the singer's death.

Their recent statement read: "Riley, Harper, Finley, and Priscilla Presley are grateful for the support, well-wishes, and outpouring of love honouring their beloved Lisa Marie.

"A public memorial service for Lisa Marie Presley has been arranged for Sunday, January 22 at 9:00 am on the front lawn at Graceland Mansion in Memphis, Tennesse."

Members of the public that attend the ceremony are being encouraged to donate to The Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation instead of the traditional flowers.

As you'd expect, many tributes have been paid to Lisa Marie since she sadly passed away earlier this month.

Among them were Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson, who spent time with the Presley family while working on the 2022 film Elvis.

Wilson said: "Lisa was so honest and direct, vulnerable, in a state of anticipation about the movie.

"She spoke so eloquently about her father, what the movie meant to her, that it was a celebration of her dad.

"She had her gorgeous daughters Finley and Harper with her who made us all laugh.

"Our hearts and prayers go out to Riley, Harper, Finley, Danny and Priscilla. A mother should never have to lose a child."
