Countess Mathilde of Limburg-Stirum has some interesting descendants such as:

Samantha Cameron, wife of former Prime minister of Great Britain, David Cameron.

Cara Delevingne, famous fashion-model and actress.

The Hon. Mrs Timothy Knatchbull, daughter in law of late Patricia, Countess Mountbatten of Burma.
