Lisa Marie Presley's eldest daughter Riley Keough has posted a heartbreaking tribute to her late mother following her touching memorial service.

Lisa Marie passed away on January 13 aged 54 after suffering a full cardiac arrest.

Friends and family gathered over the weekend to remember the singer and only daughter of Elvis Presley before she was laid to rest in Graceland.

Days after the service, Riley, 33, took to Instagram to share an emotional tribute to her late mum.

Posting a photo of the pair sitting side by side and smiling sweetly at the camera, Riley wrote: "I feel blessed to have a photo of the last time I saw my beautiful mama. Grateful."

Riley was flooded with loving messages from fans and famous friends including Teresa Palmer, Georgie Flores, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Lucy Boynton.

Lisa Marie shared her daughter Riley with her ex-husband Danny Keough.

They were also parents to son Benjamin Keough, who died by suicide in 2020.

Lisa Marie was also mum to twins Finley and Harper Lockwood, 14, who she shared with ex-husband Michael Lockwood.

During her memorial service in Memphis, Tennessee, a letter written by Riley was read out by her husband Ben Smith-Peterson.

In the letter, it was revealed that Riley and Ben had secretly welcomed a daughter, and that Lisa Marie was a grandmother.

"Thank you for being my mother in this life," the letter read.

"I am eternally grateful to have spent 33 years with you.

"I'm certain I chose the best mother for me in this world and I knew that as far back as I remember you."

With a clear lump in his throat, Ben added: "Thank you for showing me that love is the only thing that matters in this life.

"I hope I can love my daughter the way you loved me, the way you loved my brother and my sisters."

Tyla has contacted Riley Keough's reps for comment.

Lisa Marie’s mother Priscilla Presley, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, and former Memphis Mayor A C Wharton also spoke during the service.

Artists like Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins, Alanis Morissette, and Axl Rose also performed.

Just days before her passing Lisa Marie attended the Golden Globes with Priscilla Presley in support of Austin Butler, who was nominated for - and subsequently won - an award for Best Actor for his performance in Baz Luhrmann's Elvis.

In his acceptance speech, Austin dedicated his win to Lisa Marie and Priscilla.

"I want to thank the Presley family," Butler said. "Thank you, guys. Thank you for opening your hearts, your memories, and your home to me.

"Lisa Marie, Priscilla, I love you forever."
