On what would have been Benjamin’s 28th birthday in October that year, she shared some emotional words for him.

“My beautiful beautiful angel, I worshipped the ground you walked on, on this earth and now in Heaven,” she wrote on Instagram.

“My heart and soul went with you. The depth of the pain is suffocating and bottomless without you every moment of every day. I will never be the same.

“Please wait for me my love, and hold my hand while I stay to continue to protect and raise your little sisters and to be here for Riley,” she continued.

“I know you would want that. Happy Birthday my sweet sweet Boy. You were much too good for this world.”

Riley also shared a tribute post to Benjamin, sharing a gallery of throwback photos from her wedding day, and their childhood. She captioned the post: “Happy Birthday beautiful angel”.

To remember her late brother on the second anniversary of his death, the actress shared another rare sibling photo from her wedding.

“Not an hour goes by where I don’t think of you and miss you,” she captioned the photo.

“It’s been two years today since you left and I still can’t believe you’re not here. You are so loved my Ben Ben.”

On her Instagram Stories, Riley also reshared a number of other tribute posts made by friends and family.

Diana Pinto, Benjamin’s former girlfriend shared a particularly heartbreaking screenshot from a conversation she had with Benjamin on a day when she’d been feeling down.

“I told him I was feeling sad one day and this was his response. I wish I could text him & ask how to fix it today,” she wrote.

Benjamin’s message to Pinto read: “Hi little heart. Why are you so upset? You should ask it too. And try and see what it says back! Did you talk to it? Close your eyes and talk to it!”

Following his death, close friend and musician Brandon Howard told People that Benjamin had struggled with his mental health and the “pressure” of his family name.

“Sometimes he struggled with depression, which is a serious thing with [the COVID-19 pandemic],” said Howard, who added that “being a Presley” was a factor too.

“That kind of pressure is definitely a part of what happened,” he said. “It’s a tough thing when you have a lot of pressure with your family and living up to a name and an image.

“It’s a lot of pressure. It’s almost like you’re pressured into having to be a musician, having to be an actor.”

Finley Aaron Love Lockwood and Harper Vivienne Ann Lockwood

Twins Finley Aaron and Harper Vivienne, 13, are the daughters of Lisa Marie Presley and her second husband, Michael Lockwood.

Presley was married to Lockwood from 2006 to 2016, when their marriage came to a frosty end.

The couple split citing “irreconcilable differences”, with Presley’s then-legal representative Ronald Litz telling People that Lockwood had “taken advantage” of Presley.

“He apparently was in charge of her assets throughout the marriage and didn’t do what he should have done on a fiduciary basis,” Litz said. “He took advantage of her.”

Yet the twins, who were born on October 7, 2008, seem as happy as ever, and have made numerous public appearances alongside their mum and step-sister, Riley.

In the lead-up to the release of Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis, the twins often stood side-by-side with their mum at premieres and other events.

As for their own careers, the twins are reportedly yet to pursue acting or music, focusing on their education for the time being.

It’s understood that the Presley family has rallied around the twins and Riley following their mother’s tragic death in January 2023.
