Author Shirley Dieu, who interviewed Priscilla at length, says she told her she met the King of Rock and Roll in July 1977, four years after their divorce, and he begged: “I’m miserable. I want my family back.” Calling her Satnin, his pet name for her during six years of marriage, Elvis referred to their daughter Lisa Marie, saying: “I miss the family times we all had. Lisa needs her mom and dad together.”

He also told Priscilla he had no intention of marrying his new fiancée, 20-year-old Ginger Alden, who was devastated to discover she did not figure in his will after his death on August 16.

Ms Dieu, a long-time girlfriend of Elvis’s former road manager and ­confidant Joe Esposito, recounts the story in her book Memphis Mafia ­Princess: Living In The Elvis World.

The former model included the ­revelations with Priscilla’s blessing.

She said: “She hadn’t put it in her autobiography. She said she thought enough time had passed and was happy for me to include it in my book. I feel so privileged she trusted me with this.” Elvis’s sad attempt to woo back the woman he met while doing national service in the US Army in Germany would probably have worked had he lived, Ms Dieu believes.

She said: “I don’t believe Elvis would ever have married Ginger. Nobody liked Ginger. She didn’t fit in with the group. She was 20 years old and he was 42. When you think of all the women Elvis dated – and we liked them all – why would he pick this one girl? I think her mother was pushing her on him.

“I believe there were three women in Elvis’s life who really cared about him – Linda Thompson, the longtime girlfriend he split from before turning to Ginger, his former screen co-star and lover Ann-Margret and Priscilla. Those women would have been there for him no matter what, especially Priscilla.”

Her book tells how Elvis doted on Priscilla. Ms Dieu added: “Who knows what might have happened had she said yes immediately to his final plea to her to come back.”

THANK YOU Liliane, for sharing this article.

It is strange: I had never heard of that Shirley Dieu before, but I have come across her name several times in the last two days... I looked for her image and there appeared the pics of the last holidays in Hawaii Elvis spent with friends (Larry Geller was one of them) and Ginger, just before that August '77. In some of them he is hugging friendly a blond young woman. Now I discover she is Shirley Dieu. :roll:
