The London native suffered a mild stroke in 2021 after suffering from heart problems in the years before.

Birkin was born to stage star Judy Campbell and Royal Navy Lieutenant Commander David Birkin.

She enchanted France with her British music and fashion style, was best known for her collaboration with the late Serge Gainsbourg on Je t’aime… moi non plus, and gave her name to the Hermes Birkin designer handbag.

In recognition, French President Emmanuel Macron said: “Because she embodied freedom, because she sang the most beautiful words of our language, Jane Birkin was a French icon.”
