Sir Sean Connery’s last photo with wife Micheline as he battled dementia before death
Sir Sean Connery is seen clasping wife Micheline Roquebrune’s hand in the last photograph of them taken before his death.
The loving picture sees the pair on their 45th wedding anniversary in May.
The James bond legend, who was revealed to be suffering from dementia, gazes into the camera while adoring wife Micheliene, 91, gives him an affectionate look.
Sir Sean lived his last years with Micheleine and other close family members in the Bahamas where he died at the age of 90.
The final touching photo of the couple emerged just after widow Micheline paid tribute to her partner, who she described as a ‘gorgeous model of a man.’
Describing how Sir Sean’s final months were affected by his dementia battle, Micheline said: “It was no life for him. He was not able to express himself latterly.
“At least he died in his sleep and it was just so peaceful. I was with him all the time and he just slipped away. It was what he wanted.
