Priscilla Ann Presley (née Wagner/Beaulieu) [24.05.45]

“I was always hidden away, I was always the girl at home, ‘the girl he left behind’ and all of a sudden everyone wanted to know who was Priscilla Beaulieu?" 

"If you think about what the world would have been like without an Elvis, then you have to think ‘What kind of world would the Elvis world have been like without a Priscilla?’” - Joan Esposito.

“Priscilla used to dress up as a vampire. With that black hair and dark eyes she made a very convincing vampire. Then she’d turn off the lights and chase us around the dark house. Those were good times.” - David Stanley.

“For some reason I saw her as a bird. I wrote it for her. We were in the car and I let her hear a rough cut of it and she started crying. I knew she would because it’s an emotional song…it’s her favorite song.” - Lisa Marie Presley on her song Raven.

“Of all the women in my life, she definitely has the most beautiful face. Her features are classic.” - Elvis Presley on Priscilla.
