Sarah Ferguson has paid tribute to her friend Lisa Marie Presley outside the iconic estate of Graceland. 

The Duchess of York said it was a “great honour” as she stood delivering a speech today to Elvis’s only child outside the Presley family home in Memphis,Tennessee.

The 63-year-old told a packed audience how she and Lise Marie knew each other by the endearing nickname “sissy” and that she had been with some people in the crowd “all their lives”.

Paying tribute Sarah said: “Sissy, this is for you, with affection. My late mother-in-law used to say that nothing can be said, can take away the anguish and the pain of these moments, because grief is the price that we pay for love.”
