Fan Sandra Sims managed to get past police and clung to George until a police officer was able to pry her off (and George tried calming her down, it seems), Teddington Television Studios, 23 February 1964.

Pattie & George’s Rose Garden - photo by Pattie Boyd

“I went to great pains to set up a tripod in front of the climbing rosebush I planted in the garden at Kinfauns, but George got bored waiting for the shutter to close and it caught him looking away.” - Pattie Boyd, Wonderful Tonight

“This is when George and I lived in a house in Esher, Surrey, England. I had been waiting all spring for these gorgeous roses to bloom, so I was absolutely thrilled they all seemed to bloom at the same time. So I said to George, ‘I want to take a picture of them - you stand here and I’ll put the camera on my tripod.’ I set it all up, and clearly it took too long because George was just looking away the moment when the camera clicked. He has a visionary look about him and I think he looks utterly beautiful, but the story is he’s bored waiting for the camera.” - Pattie Boyd, Entertainment Weekly, 28 June 2013

“The BBC’s Steve Race, a well-disposed if ageing straight, was the night’s commentator: flitting about him were the socil butterflies of newly-born psychedelia. He remembers that the guests ‘included some of the most beautiful girls I have ever seen in my life. The most rivetingly pretty turned out to be Patti [sic] Boyd.’

[Among the friends there for the recording and broadcast of ‘All You Need Is Love’ were Jane Asher, Eric Clapton, Keith Moon and his wife Kim Kerrigan, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Mike McCartney, and more]

[Photographer David Magnus names his favorite photos as those with Brian Epstein] [W]ith a rare lack of stiffness, the manager goes tie-less, and beams happily at his boys. But two months later Brian was dead, an apparent suicide, and these are the last pictures of him with his beloved Beatles.” - Paul DuNoyer, Mojo, August 1997

Klaus Voormann on a Roman adventure with George, Pattie, and Terry Doran, translated from his German book (hopefully, my non-certified translation does the memory justice):

“Suddenly he turned around. ‘How about Rome?’

‘What do you mean?’

'Why don’t we drive to Rome, could be fun.’

Within the shortest amount of time, we had packed the necessary things and off we went to Rome. We rented a suite in an unbelievably beautiful hotel. I can’t remember the name, but I still remember the many interlocked pools with their bizarre shapes.
