"You have to keep striving for quality and preserving and being very protective," Lisa Marie said. "It's a non-stop focus and job for all of us."

When the outlet asked Presley what her favorite memory of Graceland was, she could not pick just one. 

"Everything [in] there is kind of everything that was close to him or whatever, so it's all very important and meaningful," she said of her late father Elvis

Lisa Marie is the sole heir of Elvis’ beloved Graceland estate. According to Graceland’s website, Elvis listed his father, Vernon Presley, and his grandmother, Minnie Mae Presley, in his will.

Following both of their deaths, Lisa Marie became the sole heir of the famed estate. 

"Vernon Presley died in 1979. Minnie Mae Presley died in 1980. This left Lisa Marie Presley as the sole heir to the estate. Elvis' will stated that her inheritance was to be held in trust for her until her twenty-fifth birthday, February 1, 1993," the website states.

According to the website, once Lisa Marie turned 25, she chose to form a new trust.

"Upon Lisa Presley's twenty-fifth birthday in 1993, the trust automatically dissolved and Lisa chose to form a new trust, The Elvis Presley Trust, to continue the successful management of the estate, with Priscilla Presley and the National Bank of Commerce continuing to serve as co-trustees."
