Some Facts
Met George Harrison on the set of A Hard Day's Night (1964). George tried to ask her out, but she refused; she had a boyfriend at the time. But he persisted, she eventually gave in, and they started dating.
Release of her book, "Wonderful Tonight: George Harrison, Eric Clapton and Me" by Patti with Penny Junor.
At age three, Pattie nicknamed her newborn sister Helen Mary Boyd "Jenny", after one of her dolls. Jenny Boyd became a model in her own right, accompanied The Beatles to India to study meditation, inspired [pop singer Donovan (who wrote "Jennifer Juniper" during his fruitless pursuit of her), and married drummer Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac fame.

One of the problems in her marriage to George Harrison was their inability to conceive a child, as the other Beatles married and started families. George told their friends that he was infertile, but years later, after the birth of his son Dhani (with second wife Olivia Harrison) in 1978, everyone knew better.
