The 67-year-old actress - who was married to the late singer, who died in 1977, for six years before they divorced - finds it "pointless" to compare him to other guys because nobody will ever be able to better the 'Hound Dog' hitmaker.
She said: "I don't think I'll ever find anyone I'll love as much as I loved Elvis. It's pointless trying to compare him to anyone.
"Yes, some men I've been with have mattered to me, but Elvis was my first love, he'll be my last."
Priscilla had one child, Lisa Marie, 44, with Elvis and she admits the pair have both had trouble finding men over the years because they still live in "the shadow of Elvis".
She explained: "Lisa Marie first got married at 20, and became pregnant at 21 - almost the same age as me. We had a long talk about it, but then she did exactly what she wanted to do. Just like her father!
"Sadly, that marriage didn't work out and I have to admit we've both had problems with men over the years. We've both made some bad choices. And maybe it's because we both still live with the shadow of Elvis.
"What I mean is, any man who comes into our lives has to understand that being with us can be overwhelming. The whole world is always watching."
Priscilla refers to Lisa - who has three-year-old twin daughters, Harper and Finley, with husband Michael Lockwood - as her "best friend" nowadays but she didn't get on well with her daughter when she split with Elvis as while she was trying to enforce some rules in the youngster's life, he would let her do "whatever she wanted to", and Priscilla was "fearful" that Lisa was getting mixed up in drugs.
She added to The Sunday Times Magazine: "I knew she was getting in with the wrong crowd. Drugs were prevalent. Underage drinking.
"I was so fearful that I used to follow her when she went out at night ... I used to drive her to school, just to make sure she was actually going to school."
