Mayte Garcia’s memoir, The Most Beautiful: My Life With Prince, pulls back the curtain on their relationship, which was pretty heartbreaking. Just 16 when they met, Mayte went on six years later, on Valentine’s Day in 1996, to marry Prince, who died last April from an accidental overdose of the painkiller fentanyl.
