Tuesday 16 August 2022 02:28 AM EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Wedding woes as Sir Sean Connery's granddaughter calls off ... trends now

Sir Sean Connery's granddaughter Saskia was understandably left devastated when the James Bond star died in October 2020, aged 90. However, just months later it appeared she'd found happiness by getting engaged to banking heir Phillip Thomas Muhr.

Sadly, I can reveal her joy has been short-lived as she has called off her engagement to the 35-year-old. 'Saskia ended up asking why they were getting married at all,' a close pal of the former couple informs me.

The insider adds: 'She was hoping to stay friends and have an amicable break-up but due to his behaviour post-break-up, it's made it very difficult for her to have him in her life.' Friends and family of the exes were overjoyed last April when Saskia accepted Phillip's proposal with a diamond ring at the Lyford Cay enclave in the Bahamas.

The insider says the union between the 26-year-old fashion designer — who also works as special projects manager at the Sean Connery Foundation, and whose father, Stephane, was Connery's wife Micheline's son — and Phillip was 'not meant to be'. Despite declining to comment on the reasoning behind the couple's split, the insider says: 'She did her best to make their relationship work until the very end. She's happy to be single now. She's dating a lot. She's worlds happier. She wishes him the very best and hopes he finds his happiness.'

Phillip, meanwhile, who stands to be the beneficiary of the Austro-American Muhr banking and bottled water dynasty, says he has fond memories of their four-year relationship.

'Unfortunately, it didn't work out,' he confides. 'We had a wonderful time with each other and we thought it was for the best that we remain as friends.'

The Austrian, who splits his time between London and the Bahamas, insists there were no third parties involved. He added: 'Lyford Cay is a very small community so we ended on good terms.'
