Priscilla Presley was the picture of a proud grandmother as she attended her twin granddaughters’ graduation – but there was a noticeable absence from the celebrations.
Elvis’ widow, 77, was pictured at the Harper and Finley Lockwood ceremony in Los Angeles on Friday. The occasion was also attended by the girls’ father, Michael Lockwood.
However, the late Lisa Marie Presley’s daughter, Riley Keough, stayed away from the graduation.
Keough, 33, was embroiled in a bitter family dispute with Priscilla over the multi-million dollar estate of the late Lisa Marie. Lawyers for the widow of Elvis and Riley announced in a Los Angeles probate court on Tuesday that the two have “reached a settlement.”
At graduation on Friday, Priscilla proudly watched the ceremony but remained separated from the rest of her family and left alone.

The family has been dealing with the death of Lisa Marie Presley, who died suddenly at the age of 54 in January after suffering cardiac arrest at her home in Calabasas.
Riley hopes there will be no more bad blood with her grandmother Priscilla after their spiteful legal battle ends, it is claimed.
‘Riley is relieved to have settled the dispute over her mother’s estate. She doesn’t want any drama with her grandmother,’ an insider said People.
When the legal tussle broke out between Riley and Priscilla, the former “hoped they could come to a settlement quickly,” the source added.
At Lisa Marie’s memorial service, Riley and husband Ben Smith-Petersen announced the arrival of their new baby girl.
The source shared that the flare-up of tension between grandmother and granddaughter “has been very difficult for” Riley.

“She wants to focus on making memories with her own daughter now,” the insider revealed. “It’s his priority.”
“Priscilla is happy,” her lawyer Ronson Shamoun told DailyMail.com when the settlement was reached. “Families are happy and unified and together and excited for the future.”
Asked if Riley was also happy with the settlement, her lawyer Justin Gold told DailyMail.com: “She wouldn’t have accepted the settlement if she wasn’t happy with it.”
Just two weeks after Lisa Marie died in January, her mother Priscilla filed a legal challenge to her daughter’s will – which gives control of Lisa Marie’s wealthy Promenade Trust to her daughter Riley.
Riley, who was reportedly furious when her grandmother went to court to protest the will, did not file an objection to Priscilla’s challenge.

Riley has always been supportive of her mother during her long and often nasty divorce and child custody disputes with her fourth husband, musician Michael Lockwood, 61, father of Lisa Marie’s twin, 14-year-old daughters Finley and Harper .
It was reported that Priscilla and Lisa Marie “barely spoke” just before the latter’s death after Priscilla sided with Lockwood for custody of the twins.
Multiple sources told People the mother and daughter aren’t on good terms, despite appearing at several events together, including the premiere of the Elvis biopic starring Austin Butler.
“Riley was always on his mother’s side when it came to Michael (Lockwood),” a source told the magazine. “It bothered her that her grandmother and Michael flew out together for (Lisa Marie’s) funeral.”
