Bohemian Rhapsody: WATCH Mary Austin reveal a major surprise about her love for Freddie
It is one of the great love stories. Many people, including Rami Malek who played Freddie on screen, had not realised the depth and beauty of the bond between the Queen icon and the woman he called the “love of my life.” Mary remained devoted to Freddie, even after he confessed he was gay and they both had other relationships. But even the start of their love affair was not quite as simple as people think, although it turned into a lifelong “marriage” of soul mates.
Brian May said: “It was very emotional attachment for both of them immediately. He’d had relationships with girls but i don’t think heart was ever in it. It worked because Freddie underneath was very shy and she was as well. They were a good match.”
Although they moved in together with months of dating, though, Mary revealed in a rare interview that she did not fall in love straight away.
Mary said: “It took a long while for me to really fall in love with this man but once there I could never turn away from him. His pain became my pain, his joy became my joy. I was able to look inside another human being and what I saw was a treasure trove of beauty.”
Mary has always been beloved of Freddie’s fans, often talking to them outside Freddie’s house, where she still lives. She explained why he had such a profound effect on so many others.
Mary said: “I think he also did that to a few million people outside too. That’s why I think the fans continue to feel the way they feel about him.
“They saw that that beauty, they saw the fun, they saw all the aspects of Freddie’s personality and they, too, fell in love with him.”
Freddie, as always, put it best in his own unique way in one of his most famous quotes.
Freddie said: “To me it was a marriage. She was my common-law wife. We carry on now as if we were married. Marriage is a term for other people. We believed in each other. So f*** everybody else.”
Even after he died, he trusted Mary like no-one else.
In accordance with Mercury’s wishes, Mary Austin took possession of his cremated remains and buried them in an undisclosed location. The whereabouts of his ashes are believed to be known only to Austin, who has stated that she will never reveal where she buried them.
