The widow of Sean Connery has revealed the actor's dying wish.

Micheline Roquebrune informed the Scottish Mail that before her beloved husband passed away, he had asked for his ashes to be scattered across his native Scotland and in the Bahamas, which is where he had lived after retiring. 

“He wanted his ashes to be scattered in the Bahamas and also in his homeland,” she told the outlet.

“Whenever it is possible and safe to travel again, then it is the family's intention to return to Scotland with him.”

Roquebrune, who was Connery's wife of 45 years, also shared that a memorial service for the legendary actor will take place in his birth country.

Roquebrune is a French artist and also revealed that her late husband would be cremated at a private service in the Caribbean island at a later date.

“We would like to organise a memorial service for him in Scotland — that is our hope. But we cannot say when this will happen exactly,” she said.

On October 31 that Connery died peacefully in his sleep surrounded by family at his home in the Bahamas.

He was 90 and it is believed that in his last years, he struggled with dementia.

“It was no life for him,” she told the Mail on Sunday following his death.

“It took its toll on 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.”

Connery is survived by Roquebrune, whom he married in 1975; his son by ex-wife Diane Cilento, actor Jason Connery.

He also has a grandson from Jason's marriage to actress Mia Sara.

The Bond star was married to Australian actress Cilento from 1962. The couple divorced in 1973 and Cilento died in 2011.
