Riley Keough Shares Pics from Vacation With Husband Ben

by Amanda Glover

What other way is there to kick off the holidays then with a vacation with the person you love?

Earlier today, the actress granddaughter of Elvis Presley shared with fans pictures of her pre-holiday trip to London with her husband, Ben Smith-Petersen. The couple looks much in love as Keough dreamily gazes at her man in the first photo.

In the second, Smith-Petersen twists as a squirrel grabs hold of his leg! We don’t know how that event came to be, only that Smith-Petersen made a brief, unexpected friend in the woods. Whatever he did to do so, he made an impression. No doubt the photo grabbed hold of the eyes of the fans.

Keough’s third picture caught the attention of a follower: “That ring.” Simple, but agreeable. While sipping either coffee or tea, Keough sports a huge red rock on her right ring finger.

She titled her post a silly playoff of their location: ‘Landon.’

Many followers commented wishing the couple well on her trip. “welcome to England. Enjoy your Christmas xx.” Others commented on the joy on her face in the photos. “Look at your happy face in your happy place.”

Pre-holiday trips might be a tradition for the Keough’s as they went on an adventurous road trip for a week before Thanksgiving last month.

Riley Keough Continues to Grieve after the Death of her Brother

The holidays are meant to be the time of year that brings friends and family together. They’re supposed to be reminders of everything you have and to be grateful. The holidays are meant to be a time for us to set aside our troubles and enjoy the festivities. But the death of Keough’s younger brother, Benjamin Keough back on July 20th, 2020 still weighs heavy on her heart.

Over a year ago, the grandson of Elvis Presley took his life in Calabasas, California.

In an emotional article for ET Tonight, Keough discusses continuing to deal with the loss of her brother. She talks about attempting to live her life the best she can, but not ignore how Benjamin’s death has affected her. “I’m really consciously trying to be present, and not use anything as any kind of escape, and be cognizant of when I’m doing that,” she states.

“I’m trying to operate in love and keep my heart open and give and receive love. And not in a woo-woo way, because I definitely have hard days, and all kinds of pain and suffering and all that. But I think when you realize that’s part of it, and your expectation isn’t to just be feeling joy.”

We hope she continues healing, and wish her and her family a Merry Christmas!
