It was 44 years ago on Monday that Elvis Presley died at the age of just 42. While today is the anniversary of The King’s funeral, which took place in Memphis, Tennessee as fans lined the city’s streets to pay their respects. One of those present was Elvis’ girlfriend of four years Linda Thompson, who has now shared photos of herself from that terribly sad day in 1977.

Linda posted a couple of pictures of herself from August 18, 1977, at Elvis’ funeral on her Instagram stories.

The first sees her standing outside mourning next to a Shelby County police escort motorbike, presumably for the hearse.

While another less clear snap sees her standing with others as Elvis singing They Remind Me Too Much Of You is played over the Instagram story.

Linda broke up amicably with The King in late 1976 after living with him at Graceland for four years.
