Elvis Presley died 44 years ago on Monday and as usual, fans have been celebrating his legacy at Elvis Week, held at his home of Graceland. As is the annual tradition, the Graceland Candlelight Vigil took place with fans walking by The King’s grave in the Meditation Garden. During the speeches, Elvis’ former wife Priscilla Presley paid tribute to the music icon she was married to from 1967-1973.

Late on August 15 in Memphis Tennessee, Priscilla spoke to the vast crowd of Elvis fans gathered holding candles.

The 76-year-old said: “It’s 44 years since Elvis’ passing, which is still hard for me to believe.

“I’ll never forget when I got the telephone call from Joe Esposito saying that Elvis had passed.

“And literally my knees are shaking, I could not believe he could pass because the whole group, the guys and everything, never thought Elvis would die because he was such a big personality.”
