Let $G$ be a simple graph of order $n$. The resolvent Estrada index of $G$ is defined as $REE(G)=\sum_{i=1}^n {\frac{n-1}{n-1-\lambda _i }} $, where $\lambda _1 , \lambda _2 , \cdots , \lambda _n $ are the eigenvalues of the adjacency matrix $A(G)$. In this paper, we present several lower bounds of the resolvent Estrada indices for line graphs of any regular graphs and their complementary graphs.
