Olivia Harrison has revealed that she is hospitalized with Covid-19 but is on the mend. In a Jan. 10, 2021, post to her Instagram, the 72-year-old widow of George Harrison even displayed a bit of humor, writing that she was redesigning her hospital room curtain. The sole image was of the curtain tied in a bow at the undisclosed London hospital.

Olivia Harrison was born on May 18, 1948. She and George wed in 1978 a month before she gave birth to their son, Dhani, who is now 42 and a musician.

Her brief note on Instagram said, “Redesigning my hospital room curtain. Unlucky to get covid but on the mend. Gratitude to all the selfless carers.”

Among those wishing her well on her post was longtime music host for the BBC, “Whispering Bob” Harris, who wrote, “I’m so sorry to know you’re unwell. Stout heart. Sending you fondest love x.”

2021 is expected to be a big year for lavish anniversary releases for George Harrison and the Beatles. Olivia Harrison, with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and Yoko Ono Lennon, together approve Beatles projects. The much-delayed The Beatles: Get Back documentary from director Peter Jackson is now scheduled to be released on Aug. 27, 2021.

Last Nov. 27, the George Harrison Estate released a 2020 stereo mix of the title cut from Harrison‘s landmark solo album All Things Must Pass in celebration of its 50th anniversary. The Estate called it “a prelude of what’s to come.”

Originally released on November 27, 1970, All Things Must Pass, the triple album produced by Phil Spector, includes “My Sweet Lord,” the first number one single by a solo Beatle, plus such classic rock songs as “What is Life,” “Wah-Wah,” “Isn’t It a Pity” and “Awaiting on You All.” The critically acclaimed album topped both the U.K. and U.S. album charts, upon its release.

    Thank goodness this wonderful woman is on the mend, it would be sad beyond belief to have lost her.
    Was ALWAYS a Beatles fan, George was an extremely talented musician.
