Pattie Boyd is in Liverpool to visit her exhibition of candid photos at The Beatles Story.
George, Eric and Me, on show at the attraction’s Pier Head venue, is a collection of intimate images taken of the 72-year-old’s former husbands George and Eric Clapton.
The photographs, some taken on Boyd’s Nikon but others snapped with a Polaroid camera, also feature some of their closest friends including the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Clapton’s Cream bandmates Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker.
Speaking at the exhibition, Pattie Boyd said: “I think it looks fabulous.

“What I really like is the natural light coming in and I love the way all the photographs have been put in different areas. I always leave it to the gallery owners to put the images where they think they should go.”
Boyd was a teenage model when she was cast in the Beatles’ first film, A Hard Day’s Night, catching the eye of the young George Harrison.
They married in 1966, but went their separate ways in the 1970s and divorced in 1977. Two years later Boyd married Harrison’s close friend Eric Clapton.
The exhibition, which features a total of 57 images, also includes a selection of the 60s style icon’s vintage dresses.
Boyd, who is meeting fans and talking to them about the show this afternoon and tomorrow morning, will be back in Liverpool next month to make a return appearance at International Beatle Week.
Meanwhile she took time out from viewing her exhibition to talk about some of the photographs and the stories behind them.
