With the post, Priscilla added a touching photo of her mom Anna. It shows her stylish mother seated with a pretty basket of flowers.
As the mother of Priscilla, Anna Wagner-Beaulieu (née Iversen) was also the mother-in-law of Elvis Presley during her daughter's marriage to the music icon. This Aug. 16, it will also have been 44 years since the death of Elvis.
It's another sad loss for the Presley family that comes just over a year after Lisa Marie Presley's son Benjamin died tragically at the age of just 27.
Lisa Marie's daughter, Riley Keough, was also among those who paid tribute to Anna, her great-grandmother, today.
She wrote on Instagram: "We lost our beautiful Nana this morning. She was an incredible woman and mother. Rest In Peace nana."
Our thoughts are with the family at this sad time.
