Sean Connery's family travels on a luxury train through Scotland to scatter the actor's ashes
When Sean Connery died, he reportedly asked his wife, Micheline Roquebrune, to have his ashes scattered both in his adopted home, the Bahamas, and in his native Scotland. Now, nearly two years after his death at the age of 90, the family has done just that, taking a trip north of the border to celebrate his life.
The family has started a trip on a luxury train, the Royal Scotsman, rented especially for the occasion, coinciding with the actor's 92nd birthday, on August 25.
The interpreter's granddaughter, Saskia, has shared several images of the glamorous trip, in which she is seen posing with the boyfriend of her sister Natasha, Harper Peck, grandson of the legendary actor Gregory Peck. In another, she appears with a champagne bucket on her head: "Foreshadowing the champagne bucket hat as a big fall trend."
Saskia is the daughter of Connery's stepson, Stéphane, son of Connery's second wife, the beautiful Moroccan-Frenchwoman Micheline. She grew up in the Bahamas with her two sisters Natasha and Samara.
The 26-year-old, who is a swimwear designer, recently broke off her engagement to her 35-year-old banker boyfriend, Phillip Thomas Muhr. The couple got engaged in the spring of 2021, six months after the death of their grandfather, who passed away in October 2020. Speaking to People magazine at the time, they said: “We are so happy we found each other and We can't wait to spend the rest of our lives together."
