Taylor still longs for Burton
The pair fell in love while filming 1963's Cleopatra and wed just 12 months later before Burton's drinking eventually led to a divorce in 1974.
The Hollywood couple couldn't keep away from one another and tied the knot once again less than a year later - before ending the union after just 11 months.
Burton died in 1984 of a brain haemorrhage and although his widow Sally Hay banned Taylor from his funeral, the 77-year-old actress is still in love with him, according to Burton's niece Sian Owen.
Owen explains, "I was in America last summer and I went to see Elizabeth. In the house in Bel Air I saw pictures of Uncle Rich everywhere and it's a picture of uncle Rich that's by her bed still.
"She still says that had he lived that they'd be back together once again - that it would have been third time lucky. They were mad about each other.
"She believes that in the last years in their lives when everything had been toned down with the drinking and everything else, she believes that they'd be together. She's certain of that, they were soulmates."
