In an exclusive interview with Us Weekly ahead of the first Graceland's Elegant Southern Style Weekend, the proud grandma gushed about the twins.

Priscilla told the news outlet, 

"I can't believe they are so smart." 

After which she went on to explain that the twins are technologically savvy, and can use a smartphone, and Google better than she can. She described them as "Little girls experiencing life, and having fun."


The twins are in awe of the number of people that turn up, and the love they show to their grandfather

The wife of Elvis Presley, who is the twins' maternal grandmother, also spoke about her late husband's legacy and the twins understanding of who he was. Priscilla said

"I don't know how much they can understand at 10-year-old."

Adding that the girls know who their grandfather was, and enjoy his music.


The mom-of-one noted that whenever they hold the annual candlelight vigil in honor of Elvis at Graceland, the twins are in awe of the number of people that turn up, and the love they show to their grandfather.

Harper and Finley are the children of Priscilla's daughter, Lisa Marie Presley. The latter had them with her ex-husband, Michael Lockwood. Before the twins, the only child of the rock and roll king, had two children from her first marriage to the musician, Danny Keough. 

I see a lot of [Elvis] in Benjamin, but you know, Ben is very much his own person


Lisa's first daughter, Riley Keough, followed her grandfather's footsteps into show business, but rather than singing, she is an actress and a model.

She has appeared on the big and small screens, and some of her notable works include roles in "Mad Max: Fury Road," in 2015, and "The Good Doctor."

Riley's brother, Benjamin Keough, mostly stays out of the spotlight. But the 27-year-old appeared in the documentary, "Elvis By the Presleys'," and the TV show, "Rod and Barry."


The young man looks a lot like his grandfather, and Priscilla said in her interview, 

"I see a lot of [Elvis] in Benjamin, but you know, Ben is very much his own person." 

The late rock and roll singer's wife added that she and Lisa do not comment on the resemblance because Benjamin wants to discover himself away from his grandfather's legacy.

Priscilla is proud of her grandchildren, and even takes the twins on tour with her, when possible.
