Lisa Marie and Priscilla Presley sat down for the first time inside of Graceland with TODAY Show's Natalie Morales to talk about Elvis and how his legacy continues to live on in the hearts of his fans.

Lisa Marie talked about what Graceland means to her and how she felt at home every time she returns to her childhood home.

"I'm always really happy when I'm here," Lisa Marie explained. "It always reminds me of when I was the happiest, I think, in my life. It always just brings me back there when I come back."

Both women shared memories about Elvis on and off the stage and added that they never dreamed that fans would continue to come three decades later.

"That's the force of Elvis," Priscilla insisted. "I remember Elvis saying that he didn't really know if he gave up singing, if he did want to retire, he felt that people would forget him. And to see this every year? It's like, 'Oh my gosh, you were wrong. Look at this! Look what you do every year. Look who you bring.' It brings a smile to my face, because … if he only knew."
