born in Uccle, the twentieth of January nineteen-hundred-and-seventy-three,
having domicily at Losange Castle, Bastogne,
eldest daughter of the high- and wellborn lord Patrick Paul François Xavier Marie Ghislain d'Udekem d'Acoz,

So she is 34.

I see at the offical Monarchie site that Princess Mathilde has no visits scheduled until June - do you think she will be out and about in April and May. Otherwise it's a long time to wait!

Strict division of estates in marriage

The official document also says that Prince Philippe and Lady Mathilde have agreed a strict division between their personal estates, meaning that in case of a separation Lady Mathilde has no claim on Prince Philippe's estate.

The spouses have declared to have agreed prenuptial agreements on a strict division of estates, by Act of November the fifth, in the year nineteen-hundred-ninety-nine, before James Dupont, notary, having domicily in Brussels.

This Marrige Act is made in presence of:

His Imperial and Royal Highness Archduke Siméon Charles Eugène Joseph Léopold of Austria,
not related or connected to the spouses,
forty-one years old,
having domicily in Weiler, Austria;

His Royal Highness Prince Henri Gabriël Félix Marie Guillaume of Luxembourg,
cousin of the male spouse,
forty-four years old,
having domicily in Luxembourg, Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg;

The high- and wellborn Lady Elisabeth Marie Hedwige Ghislaine d’Udekem d’Acoz,
sister of the female spouse,
twenty-two years old,
having domicily in Bastogne, Belgium;

The high- and wellborn Lady Stéphanie Priscilla Marie-Anne Jane de Radigues de Chennevière,
not related or connected to the spouses,
twenty-four years old,
having domicily in Forest, Belgium.

Do you know if marriage with strict division between their personal estates is common in royal families or is this rather an exeption?

The late Prince Bernhard himself declared that he inherited 'nothing' from his spouse Queen Juliana, who held the bulk of the Orange-Nassau fortune. Also in this case his own estate (properties, investments, inheritances from his German family, his personal allowance) was strictly separated from the estate of his late spouse Queen Juliana.

I have understood that in the United Kingdom there is no such thing as 'huwelijkse voorwaarden' ('marriage conditions') as we do know it on the Continent, and Prince Charles had to pay enormous amounts to his former spouse Diana, when they divorced.

In the Amsterdam Arrondissement Court of Justice, in the Family Registry Chamber you can request an insight in all contracts attached to all marriages officiated in Amsterdam. So also the marrage contract of Princess Beatrix and Prince Claus:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


At present, February the Tenth, in the year Nineteen-hundred-sixty-six, have appeared in person before me, Willem Groen LL.M., Notary, with domicily in The Hague;
On the one side;
Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrix Wilhelmina Armgard of the Netherlands, Princess of Orange-Nassau, Princess of Lippe-Biesterfeld;
and;
on the other side;
Claus Georg Wilhelm Otto Friedrich Gerd von Amsberg, Assessor Juris;
named the comparants.

The comparants have declared to have agreed on arrangements for a marriage on a strict division of estates. Also the unity of profits and of losses is exluded.

Arranged and agreed by contract of February the Tenth, in the year Nineteen-hundred-sixty-six, signed by the comparants, in the presence of the high- and wellborn Jonkheer Eric Willem Röell LL.M., Particulier Treasurer of Her Majesty The Queen; and the high- and wellborn Jonkheer Petrus Adrianus van Buttingha Wichers LL.M., Candidate-Notary.

For the act, Willem Groen LL.M., Notary.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This means that both fortunes remain strictly separated.

After thinking about the question, it is logic that royal families will seperate their patrimonium from that of new family members. Like it has become common to marry a ordinary citizens it seems more safe.

It's the whole opposite from the past, when marriages where organised to have more power and to get a bit of the fortune of the other.

No, also in the past marriage contracts were usance. See this pic of a wonderful marriage contract from The Prince of Orange (later King Willem II) and Anna Paulovna Romanovna Grand Duchess of Russia.

But 'divorce' was unknown and an ultimately shame. A divorce was simply un-imagineable.

(Divorce was not totatly unknown, but we must admit Henry VIII of England was an extreme exeption )

Wow, I've never heard of that. So if little Christian had been a girl, and Fred and Mary had only kept having girls, then once Frederik became king, his daughter would be HRH The Throne Follower, and not HRH The Crown Princess?
