It is poignant that Solange will be buried at the castle where she was born: Eijsden Castle near Maastricht, the Netherlands.

Main building on the castle domain, Solange's birthplace: https://l1.nl/content/images/old-ass..._beemden_0.jpg

Solange's grandmother, Marie Fernande gravin van Geloes van Eijsden was the owner of the castle. After her death in 1956 it became Liedekerke property. The current owner is Solange's nephew Marcel graaf de Liedekerke, married with Beatrice gravin Christyn de Ribaucourt.
