The siblings looked close as can be, hugging tight in photos from Riley’s wedding to Ben Smith-Petersen five years ago.

While the Mad Max: Fury Road talent looked stunning, her brother was equally striking in his classic suit.

Benjamin appeared a bit camera shy, keeping his gaze away from the camera. 

Still, it seemed a touching moment, as the late musician smiled offered a thumbs up before staring at the ground with a small smile.

Riley and Benjamin looked like they were having fun as they hopped onto two toy motorcycles at a fair. 

Clearly a moment from the 90s, she had on a denim shirt with flowers on the collar and her hair was done up into pigtails.

Ben had curly golden locks that went down to past his chin and wore a blue plaid top that matched his sister.

Mr. Keough died in July after shooting himself in his family’s mansion in Calabasas, California.

At the time, sources revealed he’d been ‘struggling’ and that his death, while devastating, was not a ‘huge surprise’ to his mother or other relatives. 

Keough was the son of Lisa Marie and Danny Keough, her first of four husbands. The pair were together from 1988 until 1994.

Last week a newly-released autopsy report has revealed Lisa Marie Presley’s son had cocaine and alcohol in his system when he shot himself.

It’s unclear how much alcohol or cocaine he had in his system but there were traces of both, according to the report which was released by the LA County Coroner’s office released earlier this week. 

The report also describes Keough’s history with mental illness. He had tried to take his life six months earlier, then spent three weeks in rehab four months before he died. 

Keough had attempted rehab three times before but never completed it.

Lisa Marie has previously spoken of her son's, pictured, similarity to her dad Elvis, calling their resemblance 'uncanny' Lisa Marie has previously spoken of her son's similarity to her dad Elvis, pictured, calling their resemblance 'uncanny'.
