Here’s how to watch Lisa Marie Presley’s funeral service at Graceland

The life of Lisa Marie Presley will be celebrated at her father Elvis Presley’s Graceland mansion this weekend, less than two weeks after she died at the age of 54.

Presley’s family announced earlier this week that the landmark home in Memphis, Tennessee will hold a memorial to the musician, who was the only child of Elvis and Priscilla Presley. Lisa Marie died at West Hills Hospital on January 12 after suffering a heart attack.

“Priscilla Presley and the Presley family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Lisa Marie,” Graceland’s website said in an online post last week. “They are deeply grateful for everyone’s support, love and prayers and ask for privacy at this very difficult time.”

Presley is survived by her mother; her eldest daughter, actor Riley Keough; and 14-year-old twins Harper and Finley Lockwood, whom she shared with ex-husband Michael Lockwood.

Here’s everything you need to know about the service.

How can I watch and when does it start?

Presley will be buried before the memorial ceremony, which will be held at 9 a.m. local time (7 a.m. Pacific) Sunday. Fans unable to attend the public event can pay tribute by tuning in to the official livestream.

Footage will stream at 4:50am Pacific Time.

Where will the memorial service take place?

Attendees will gather on Graceland’s north front yard next to the seating area reserved for Presley’s loved ones.

After her parents divorced in October 1973, Presley spent her childhood between their two households. Her mother lived in Los Angeles.

When her father died on August 16, 1977, Presley became the sole heir to his vast estate. Eventually, Presley and her mother turned Graceland into a lucrative tourist attraction that still attracts generations of fans.

“I appreciate that part of my life can always stay the same,” Lisa Marie told NPR in 2013. “I think a lot of people would like that – your childhood home stayed exactly as it was. It’s heartwarming.”

Where is Lisa Marie buried?

She is buried opposite her father and next to her son, Benjamin Keough, in Graceland’s Meditation Garden. In 2020, Keough died by suicide at the age of 27. Presley had spoken openly about her grief after the death of her only son.

“Nothing, absolutely NOTHING takes away the pain, but finding support can sometimes help you feel a little less alone,” she wrote in a 2022 essay for People.

Also buried in the Meditation Garden are other members of the Presley family, including Lisa Marie’s paternal grandparents Gladys and Vernon Presley, and great-grandmother Minnie Mae Presley.

After the memorial service, visitors can take part in a procession in the meditation garden.

How can I pay tribute?

Fans attending the service in person are allowed to bring flowers and small trinkets to place on Lisa Marie’s grave.

Those watching at home can donate to the Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation, which supports organizations dedicated to the arts, education, and children’s programs in Tennessee.

The EPCF also funds the Elvis Presley Endwed Scholarship Fund at the University of Memphis College of Communication & Fine Arts.
