Riley Keough, the oldest daughter of the late Lisa Marie Presley, shared the last picture she took with her mom before she passed away on January 12, 2023.
The actress and model took to Instagram to share a picture of them sitting at a restaurant and smiling softly at the camera while leaning toward each other.
“I feel blessed to have a photo of the last time I saw my beautiful mama. Grateful @georgieflores took this,” she captioned the post.
Keough, 33, wore a matching silver and gold crop top and bottoms while the late singer wore a black blouse and a black jacket with gold buttons.
Keough’s husband Ben Smith-Peterson paid a tribute at Presley’s memorial at Graceland on Sunday, which was written by the Daisy Jones & The Six star.
Also remembering her late younger brother Benjamin Keough, who passed away of suicide in July 2020 at the age of 27, she wrote, “Thank you for giving me strength, my heart, my empathy, my courage, my sense of humor, my manners, my temper, my wildness, my tenacity. I’m a product of your heart, my sisters are a product of your heart, my brother is a product of your heart.”
Keough also added that she "hope[s] I could love my daughter the way you loved me.”
The statement did confirm that she had welcomed a child, a girl, with her husband but was unclear when she gave birth. Riley Keough and Ben Smith-Peterson married in 2015.
The heartfelt note continued, “I remember how it felt to be loved by the most loving mother I’ve ever known. How safe it felt to be in your arms: I remember that feeling as a child and I remember it two weeks ago on your couch.”
The only child of late icon Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley, Lisa Marie Presley, passed away at 54. Her housemaid was the one who found her, her ex-husband Danny Keough performed CPR until paramedics arrived and rushed her to her husband. After she was discovered to be brain-dead, her family had signed a DNR in case of a second cardiac arrest- which Presley did suffer the same night.
Lisa Marie Presley was buried at Graceland, next to her beloved son and father, on Sunday. She is survived by her mother Priscilla, 77, fraternal twin daughters Finley and Harper Lockwood, 14, and older daughter Riley Keough.
