Riley Keough might not be quite as popular as her grandfather, Elvis Presley, but she is still living her life to the fullest.
When you are the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley, and the granddaughter of legendary rock ‘n roll star Elvis Presley, the bar is set pretty high. Despite those high pressures, Riley Keough has actually managed to live a life mostly out of the spotlight. She did become a successful actress, however. You may recall seeing her in the CBS hit series, The Good Doctor, or in the 2015 film, Mad Max: Fury Road. Or perhaps you remember seeing her make her acting debut alongside Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart in The Runaways, back in 2010.
But what has the 32-year-old been up to lately? Well, it turns out she likes to spend her time vacationing it up on the beach. And how can we blame her? There’s nothing better than soaking up some sun with family and friends. And moreover, one of the best feelings in the world is that of a nice ocean breeze.
The granddaughter of the great Elvis Presley has nearly half a million followers on just Instagram alone. She often takes to her official account to keep in touch with her fans and provide updates about what’s going on in her life. That’s exactly what she did on Sunday afternoon during a beach day with her dad and some close friends. Have a look down below:
“Dad and co.,” Keough captioned her latest snap.
What Is It Like Being the Granddaughter of Elvis Presley?
It is a question that many of us fans have long wondered when seeing Riley Keough out and about. How much does she actually know about her grandfather’s legacy? After all, Elvis Presley was dubbed the “King of Rock and Roll” and was easily one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century.
But according to Riley Keough, she doesn’t really think about it all that much. She was never able to meet Elvis Presley. He died in 1977 and Keough was born in 1989. She explained as much in a sit-down with Esquire back in 2016.
“The reality is I know as much about my grandpa as you’d know about a grandpa you never met,” Keough said.
However, when it comes to his music, Keough admitted that she does listen to it from time to time. However, it can be hard because she remembers all of the grief of her mom and her grandma growing up.
“If it’s on, I’ll listen to it. There’s definitely emotion around it,” she explained. “There was a sad thing, tragic kind of a thing. So, there was definitely that relationship to it.”
