MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE: Prince Andrew’s ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, a dear friend of Lisa Marie Presley, had come in to attend the memorial service for her at the Presleys' family estate in Graceland. Ferguson spoke to the media at the airport and had stated that the singer-songwriter had not been fine ever since her son Benjamin Keough’s’s suicide in 2020, and that she had died of a broken heart. Lisa shockingly died from a sudden cardiac arrest, two days after she had attended the Golden Globes to support Austin Butler, who played her father Elvis Presley in the movie ‘Elvis’.

“I think we need to make sure Finley, Riley and Harper are fully supported going forward,” Ferguson said. The Duchess of New York added, “She was so proud of them, so proud.

The Duchess and the singer have been friends for long, from back when Lisa used to live in Sussex, England, along with her ex-husband Michael Lockwood. "They hit it off straight away, they just seemed to understand each other,” an insider said of Lisa and Lockwood. The pair had continued to be friends even after Lisa moved back to the States and the latter also supported the Duchess when things were going south. “They became quite close and kept in touch when Lisa Marie moved back to the States,” the source continued, adding, “and she was very supportive of the Duchess when she had tough times.”
