Priscilla: 'Elvis Would Love The Tourists'

LATEST: ELVIS PRESLEY's ex-wife PRISCILLA has endorsed the designation of the singer's former home, Graceland, as a US National Historic Landmark, because he would have loved the attention. The rock 'n' roll legend's Memphis, Tennessee mansion was awarded the status last week (27MAR06), joining a select list of American sites including the White House, Pearl Harbor and the Alamo. And Priscilla insists the late star would be thrilled by the honour. She says, "It's very strange to have Graceland declared a National Historic Landmark, because it was our home first and foremost. "I had no idea when I opened the house to the public in 1982 that it would receive so many visitors. Elvis would be very pleased about it."
