The new James Bond film has finally hit cinemas, meaning 007 fans can now watch the highly-anticipated No Time To Die.

And while actresses Ana de Armas, Lashana Lynch and Léa Seydoux may take centre-stage in the Daniel Craig-fronted film, Tatler has named the real Bond girls who have been associated with the franchise for their whole lives.

Great nieces of writer Ian Fleming have made it on to the list. These include Hum and Chloe Fleming who are glam twins and queens of the London social scene, along with Rose Grimond, 41, who owns a multi-award-winning cheese business.

Relatives of previous Bond actors, such as Sean Connery and Roger Moore, have also been named, thanks to their style and glamour, with Daniel Craig's daughter Ella Loudon also getting a mention.

Here Daily Star takes a deeper look at these real life Bond girls…

Hum Fleming

Hum is the great-niece of James Bond creator Ian Fleming.

Her father runs the Fleming & Partners bank, and she counts the likes of Lady Kitty Spencer and fashion darling Millie Mackintosh among her closest pals.

Hum, 31, is a fashion and lifestyle PR adviser with an enviable jet-setter lifestyle.

This saw her spending lockdown on the west coast of Scotland, riding across white beaches in Indonesia and enjoying a luxury infinity pool in Ibiza.

However, as well as her glam lifestyle, Hum also promotes the realities of having epilepsy with her followers on her social media accounts.

Back in August 2019, she shared photographs of her blood-stained pillows and blistered tongue after suffering an epileptic fit during the night.

She is also an ambassador for Young Epilepsy – a UK charity which works exclusively on behalf of children and young people with the condition.

Chloe Fleming

Chloe is also Ian Fleming's great-niece and the equally glamorous twin of Hum.

The 31-year-old businesswoman makes colourful headwear for her brand Good Head.

According to Tatler, her designs are often worn at society weddings, hen parties and festivals.

Though Chloe is not identical to Hun, the sisters are reportedly extremely close.

As children it's claimed they would trick gullible adults into believing they were telepathic by always answering ‘44’ when asked to think of a number.

Chloe often wows her Instagram fans with snaps of her glam lifestyle, which includes dancing at Wilderness Festival or at Lady Jemima Herbert’s wedding.

Her family seat is Sarsgrove, her father’s Oxfordshire estate.

Isabella Sophie Smith

Isabella Sophie Smith, 23, is Pierce Brosnan's eldest grandchild and the daughter of his late adopted daughter Charlotte.

Pierce was named Charlotte's adoptive father when he married first wife Cassandra back in 1980.

Charlotte and Christopher, now 46, were Cassandra's children from a previous marriage to Dermot Harris, who died in 1986.

Charlotte sadly passed away at the age of 42 on June 28, 2013 after a battle with ovarian cancer.

This is the same disease that claimed the life of her mother Cassandra Harris – Pierce's first wife – in 1991 when she was 43.

Speaking of Charlotte and Cassandra's deaths in 2014 at the Stand Up To Cancer telethon, Pierce said: "To watch someone you love have his or her life eaten away bit by bit by this insidious disease, that kind of sorrow becomes an indelible part of your psyche.

"I held the generous, strong, beautiful hand of my first wife Cassie as ovarian cancer took her life much too soon.

"And just last year (2013), I held the hand of my funny, wonderful daughter Charlotte before she too died from this wretched, inherited disease."

Isabella has stayed out of the public eye ever since Charlotte's death, however she appears to be living in London, and is the double of her mother, Charlotte.

Rose Grimond

Rose Grimond comes from a family of celebrities and public figures.

Along with being the great-niece of Ian Fleming, she is also the cousin of Helena Bonham Carter and granddaughter of former Liberal Party leader Baron Grimond.

Rose followed in her great uncle's footsteps by getting a degree in English Literature from Balliol College Oxford, before going on to study drama at The Atlantic Theatre Company in New York.

She also formerly worked for The Economist and for Make Justice Work, a campaign dedicated to getting ex-offenders into employment and abolishing short-term prison sentences.

Rose has since launched a series of successful businesses.

Saskia Connery

Saskia, 24, is the granddaughter of Sean Connery, the original James Bond.

She is a fashion entrepreneur and influencer with more than 20,000 followers on Instagram.

Saskia normally splits her time between the US and the Bahamas so she is often found on the beach in a bikini.

Her handsome partner Philip T Muhr, 32, is heir to the wealthy Austro-American Muhr banking and bottled water dynasty.

She regularly shares photos of them together as well as of her adventures across every corner of the globe, from Paris to London.

Saskia attended school in the US before going to college in Paris, where she graduated in 2017.

As well as reportedly enjoying poetry, photography, spearfishing and tennis, the socialite also spends time volunteering at a Bahamian school for underprivileged children on the island.

She describes herself as having a "unique passion and energy" which she brings to "everything she does" on her LinkedIn page.

She writes: "Having lived in The Bahamas, London, New York and Paris, and having traveled extensively elsewhere, I easily connect, am familiar and sensitive with people of all ages, cultures, religions and nationalities.

"I am a fast learner and very intuitive especially when it comes to fashion creativity, marketing or public relations.

"I am full of innovative ideas and love to learn and capture the most I can from opportunities and work with others."

Saskia recently announced she is working on a swimwear line after becoming frustrated about the lack of options in the market.

Meanwhile partner Philip and his family are also among the wealthiest water sellers in the world, as they make the Austrian spring water 'Hallstein Artesian Water', which they sell all over the world.

One litre of the elixir costs around 5.50 EUR (£4.94) but it is only sold as an annual subscription with bottles that contain about 19 litres of the liquid, and priced at 100 EUR (£88.91) per bottle, with the minimum order possible being 12 bottles.

Ambra Moore

Ambra Moore is Sir Roger Moore's 22-year-old granddaughter and the daughter of Geoffrey Moore – Roger's actor, producer and restaurateur son from his third marriage to Italian actress Luisa Mattioli.

She is following in her famous relative's footsteps by taking up a career as an actor – so far starring in films such as Nemesis and Offline 2020.

Ambra was known to be very close to her 007 grandad while she was growing up in Gstaad, Switzerland.

She previously said that some of her very earliest performances were for Sir Roger's eyes only.

"When I think of him it's an amalgamation of a lot of different memories," she told Daily Mail.

"My sister Mia and I had a tradition of watching classic English comedies with him. We'd have breakfast in bed with him and watch The Vicar Of Dibley and Fawlty Towers."

Sir Roger reportedly helped her develop as an actress and came to watch her in school plays – offering feedback on her impromptu performances.

Ambra has also worked behind the camera too – working as co-producer with her father on the warmly received satirical documentary And The Winner Isn't a few years ago.

Ella Loudon

Ella Loudon is Daniel Craig's glamorous daughter.

She made a rare public appearance with her father when attending the No Time To Die premiere and after party recently.

The 29-year-old looked stunningly chic in a shiny black suit and cream silk shirt as she attended the events.

The blonde shared a photo of her and her dad from the red carpet on Instagram as she told her followers: "I sat in the royal box and got to watch my Pops kick arse as Bond for the last time. I’m pretty f**king proud. 17 years. Goodness.

"Unbelievably thankful. So much love to the Bond family and a huge congratulations. The film is pure gold."

Daniel, 53, shares Ella with ex-wife Fiona Loudon, who he divorced in 1994 after just two years of marriage.

While the James Bond actor may be one of the most famous men in the world, Ella mainly likes to stay out of the limelight most of the time.

Ella is a model, artist, and also is following in her father's footsteps – appearing in stage productions for Shakespeare & Company and several short films.

Unlike the children of other wealthy actors, Ella is unlikely to receive a large inheritance once her father dies, with Craig previously saying he would rather "get rid" of all his money than give it to his children because he finds the concept of inheritance "quite distasteful".

Ella was raised out of the spotlight and spent her early childhood years in London before moving to a boarding school in Massachusetts, US, at the age of 17.

After graduating, she enrolled at NYU to study acting. However her time at the university, whose alumni include Lady Gaga, Alec Baldwin and Kristen Bell, didn't last very long as she dropped out after a year.

The actress has admitted in a previous interview how she suffered from depression, explaining how "her head wasn't in the right place at the time".

Ella now lives between New York and LA.
