AceShowbiz – The Duchess of York is reportedly set to hand out a gong at this year’s Oscars due to her friendship with Elvis Presley‘s family. Sarah Ferguson, 63, gave a tribute speech at Graceland about Elvis’ late daughter Lisa Marie Presley in January at a memorial service for the singer, 54, after she was killed by two heart attacks on January 12, and is now said to be headed to the Academy Awards where Baz Luhrmann’s “Elvis” biopic is up for eight awards.
A source told The Sun on Monday, March 6, “There have been discussions about The Duchess attending and it now looks as though that will happen – the plan is for her to present an award. She has been a very close friend of the Presley family, especially Elvis’ daughter Lisa Marie, and she even spoke at her funeral recently. That sparked some conversations about the possibility of her attending – and after some back and forth it looks like it’s happening.”
