Sir Sean Connery’s last photo with wife after he died following dementia battle

James Bond icon Sir Sean Connery can be seen looking as loved-up as ever with his adoring wife Micheline Roquebrune in the last ever photo they took together.

The final photograph of the sweet couple, which was taken before the 90 year old died this week after his family confirmed the sad news on Saturday, shows the pair out celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary in May of this year.

Connery can be seen starring into the camera lens as his wife stares lovingly at him.

She shared the sweet snap hours after she shared her emotional tribute to him where she dubbed her hubby as a "gorgeous model of a man".

In the snap, Micheline can be seen wearing a green shirt with an even darker green top on underneath.

Connery looks as stylish as he ever did in a striped navy-blue polo and a matching blue scarf around his neck which he was holding onto.

Micheline has also opened up on what the last few months of her husband's dementia was like.

Living out his final days in the Bahamas with his wife and family, Micheline said it was "no life for him".

She said to MailOnline: "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.

"He had dementia and it took its toll on him. He got his final wish to slip away without any fuss."

The pair's eyes first met across a dinner table in 1970 at a golf tournament with Connery previously saying he was instantly attracted to the Moroccan-French painter.

Recalling the first time she laid eyes on Sean, Michelien previously said: "I saw this man from the back, and of course, he had a fine physique.

"But that first day I didn’t know who he was or anything about him. Then I dreamed I saw this man. I was in his arms. And I thought ‘At last, peace’. The next day I went back to the tournament and that was that!"

The pair wed on May 6, in 1975. Connery was also married to Diane Cilento until 1973.
