Family and close friends of the late Lisa Marie Presley will get their chance to give her a personal goodbye before the public descends on Graceland to pay respects this weekend.

54-year-old Marie Presley lost her life after suffering cardiac arrest in her home on Thursday, last week.

The family of the late artist will be holding a memorial service for her over the weekend and it has been revealed the ceremony will be extremely private, and those attending will be required to sign a nondisclosure agreement (NDA) to prevent details about the service from leaking.

In addition to the private memorial service, the family will also attend Sunday's public service at Graceland where Marie will be laid to rest.

Lisa Marie was the only child of the late "King of Rock 'n' Roll", Elvis Presley.

According to America's media outlet TMZ, sources with direct knowledge of the family revealed that Lisa Marie's 3 daughters, her mother Priscilla Presley, exes Danny Keough and Michael Lockwood will all be part of a small group that will gather at Graceland before Sunday to mourn her loss

The family has also invited celebrated actor Austin Butler, who played Elvis in the new Oscar-buzz-worthy film has been invited to the memorial.

As for Lisa Marie's twin 14-year-old daughters, Harper and Finley Lockwood, sources say they've been staying with their dad, Michael, at his home since Lisa Marie died.

Lisa's gravesite will be positioned around the famous backyard fountain area next to where Elvis and his parents are buried. However, her exact laying place will be next to her late son, Benjamin who took his own life back in 2020 at the family's Tennessee estate, Graceland.

Her plot’s location is direct across the fountain from her late father, Elvis Presley‘s grave site. 

Instead of flowers, Lisa's family has requested mourners and well-wishers to instead donate to The Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation. 

There is still no word on who might be addressing the gathered crowd, or performing but considering the family has announced they'll have a live broadcast after the private memorial and the fact that Lisa was so beloved in the media industry we can expect to see a couple of Hollywood's big names.
