It takes a lot to impress royalty.
"People variously called the house a castle, a mansion, a palace, but it reminded me of the badger sett," he wrote, referencing the flat he once lived in. "Dark, claustrophobic. I walked around saying: The King lived here, you say? Really?"

Harry's recollection of the trip is a rather tame part of his book compared to other stories, though his aunt Sarah Ferguson, Eugenie and Beatrice's mother, was just at Graceland for the Sunday, January 22, memorial of Lisa Marie Presley, someone she called a friend.

After the tragic death, Ferguson made a tribute to the late singer in an Instagram post, which featured a smiley pic of the two.
"You were my sissy, an amazing mother to Ben, Riley, Harper and Finley and a superbly loving daughter to Priscilla," Prince Andrew's ex-wife penned. "You have been my devoted friend for many years and I am here for your family to support and love them. I am deeply saddened my sissy, you are in my heart."
As OK! reported, Lisa Marie's grave is situated between that of her son and her iconic father.
The memorial featured several musical performances, poetry reading and speeches, with one of the most emotional moments coming from her daughter Riley Keough, as she revealed she secretly welcomed a daughter with husband Ben Smith-Peterson.
