Prince Albert at the King's Castle

HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco and fiance Charlene Wittstock visited the mansion of the late "King of Rock & Roll" Elvis Presley, "Graceland" in Memphis. The couple had some of the barbeque Memphis is so famous for before touring the mansion and paying their respects at the grave of Elvis in the Meditation Garden. Prince Albert said that all in his party wanted to visit Graceland on their American vacation, pointing out how his music had touched their lives the same as anyone else and they wanted to view the cultural landmark that Graceland has become. He praised Elvis' contribution to the world of music as well as his charitable generosity, “He was an extraordinary figure of his time and our time. His legacy was tremendous in terms of the music he created, his films, and in terms of him as an entertainment personality. The generosity that he showed toward others is simply remarkable and I think it’s these aspects of his character, his persona, that make him such a special person.”
