Roye retired to Portugal. During the 1974 revolution, he was besieged in his house, holding out with a shotgun. Forced to sell up he returned to England. In 1980, he made his final move to Rabat, the capital of Morocco. He became Morocco’s oldest British expatriate, and he was also the longest-serving member of the British Institute of Professional Photographers. He took up parasailing at the age of 75 and water-skied on the river Bouregeg until he was 78 years old. Roye was married three times. His first marriage was to actress Joan Dare. He later married Renee Bernadeau who had been a French dancer. His final marriage was to Marilyn, a Canadian model who died in 1993. In 2002 at the age of 96, Roye was stabbed to death by an intruder at his home in the kasbah of Rabat, Morocco.
