Model and photographer Pattie Boyd has opened up about her final moments with her ex-husband George Harrison.
Boyd and the former Beatle were married from 1966 until 1977. After their divorce, they remained friends until Harrison’s death in 2001.
Speaking to The Big Issue in an interview with Jane Graham for the weekly Letter To My Younger Self feature, Boyd recalled the last time Harrison came to see her.
“Before he died he came to visit me,” she said. “He was very ill but we didn’t talk about [him dying].
“I think he came just to see me, and catch up and to see where I live. He brought me a few little gifts and we had tea and listened to some music. And when he left I thought, I’ll never see him again.”
Pattie Boyd began a career modelling for magazines like Vogue and Vanity Fair, posing for elite photographers like David Bailey and Terence Donovan, when she was 18. She met Harrison shortly after and they were married when she was 22.
