The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: March 16, 1969

John and Yoko have decided to get married, but not in Britain. Their first choice is to have the ceremony performed on a cross-channel ferry, but they are denied permission to board the “Dragon” at Southhampton Docks because of “inconsistencies in their passports.” Instead, they fly to Paris, where they spend four days planning their next move.

Meanwhile, Paul and Linda landed at John F Kennedy Airport in New York City. Their honeymoon lasted two weeks, and included time spent with the Eastman family.
