mustard quoted Paul as having said:

"If you listen to it now – the high harmony on The Beatles’ ‘Let It Be’ – that’s Linda doing it. "

Where in the song is that?  Does anyone have the time-stamped specific or something close?

I sincerely doubt it's true. George is singing the high harmony, John the low one. You can see and hear George singing that bit in the Let It Be film. There aren't any other harmonies, are there?

 

Maybe he meant another song. Linda sings on Hey Jude , right? Perhaps he's got his songs mixed up.

The question still remains whether she sang on Let it be or not..

Maybe Paul mistook George for Linda a-hard-days-night-paul-7a-hard-days-night-john-6

Linda added harmonies in January 1970 which are on the single version ('Past Masters ') and 'Let It Be ... Naked'.

During the January 4, 1970, session, Paul replaced track 4 with a bass performance of his own. Brass (scored by George Martin) was overdubbed on track 5, along with Paul’s descending electric piano riffs.The song was given a tape reduction into takes 28–30, with a simultaneous new overdub doubling the brass on track 5 and adding cellos at the end of track 2. Paul, George, and Linda (making her sole appearance on a Beatles recording) also triple-tracked some high harmonies (bouncing from track 7 to 4 and back to 7).
Finally, track 4 received an overdub of George’s lead guitar (non-Leslied, including a new solo), plus maracas (Paul) and extra drums (Ringo) for the last half of the song. The eight-track tape now contained:

track 1 —lead vocal and electric piano
track 2—old backing vocals and cellos
track 3—organ
track 4—new lead guitar, maracas, drums
track 5—double-tracked brass
track 6—bass and drums
track 7—new triple-tracked backing vocals and old lead guitar
(April 30, 1969)
track 8—piano

A pair of stereo mixes concluded the session, and Glyn took away the tape but didn’t slot the new mix into his LP lineup prepared the next day, apparently intending to keep the LP and single versions separate. Instead, a fresh stereo mix was done at Olympic on January 8 for the single. This mix (A) pans the backing vocals from
left to right at the start and features George’s April 1969 guitar performance from track 7, although a bit of the new guitar is used during the final verse, alongside the maracas and drums...

The remix (C) for Let It Be … Naked neither lets it be nor stands naked, using quite a bit of digital trickery. The majority of the song is take 27A from January 31, 1969, incorporating two January 4, 1970, overdubs: the new backing vocals and Paul’s bass overdub. In addition, portions of take 27B (used in the film) are spliced in,
specifically the third chorus and subsequent guitar solo (1:31–2:26) and the third verse and subsequent chorus (2:41–3:22). However, as Paul had sung “there will be no sorrow” on the third verse during take 27B, that line is replaced with take 27A’s “speaking words of wisdom.” Whew!
