Priscilla Presley opens up about Elvis Presley’s private life, saying, “The King was so very private.”

ELVIS PRESLEY was a global superstar, but he kept his home life at Graceland incredibly private.

Priscilla Presley, his ex-wife, has revealed details of their secret routine from their 50-year marriage.

Fans have gathered outside Graceland to pay tribute to Elvis Presley, who would have turned 87 today.

His ex-wife Priscilla took to the podium today at the annual proclamation ceremony in Memphis, Tennessee, in front of a giant birthday cake modeled after the mansion’s living room and stained-glass peacock windows.

The 76-year-old gave a moving speech, emphasizing how Graceland served as a sanctuary and safe haven for Elvis throughout his life, something he valued greatly as such a private individual.

“Elvis loved Graceland, as you know,” Priscilla said.

It was the first place he went after seeing a movie, seeing a show, or going on a tour.

He’d return home.

This was where I belonged.

“When I think back on it, he had a very private life here, and I think to myself, ‘My gosh.’

‘How private we lived.’

This wasn’t just our home; it was also a gathering place for our friends.

The guys were in…very small women.

I was the only little lady, so it was just me and the guys, and we went about our business.

We’d have dinner, sit at the table, talk and laugh, and watch Johnny Carson all the time, I imagine.

After that, go straight to the [movie]theater.

In that sense, we had a fairly regular existence.

“However, as the years passed, I realized that Elvis was a very private man.”

He came here to be with his family.

He was ecstatic to be at Graceland.

And the more I come, the more I realize why.

It’s simply a place of peace, memories, and friends.

We’ve also lost a number of them.

“I know we’d have the horses, the chickens, and my dogs when we came here.”

It was as if we were living in our own little world.

It’s where he’d completely surrender.

Nothing came to mind for him.

He was completely immersed in the present moment, savoring every second.
