Cordelia, Alistair... It sounds like they speak English at home, although that probably isn't the case.

An uncle of Queen Mathilde is the front candidate for the Flemish Christian party in Flemish Brabant. Count Raoul d'Udekem d'Acoz (79) previously was a member of the Flemish Christian Democrat Party.

I suppose he is free to do whatever he wants, he has citizen rights like everybody else. But it isn't advisable for relatives of royals to be too outspoken.

If I understand correctly the VCP is a fringe party that started due to dissatisfaction with the course of the CD&V (Christian Democrats). I assume that they are very conservative. The party didn't get any seats during the previous Flemish elections btw.

The count (and his brother Henri) had a fight with their brother Patrick that lasted two decades about the inheritance of their mother. It seems that things are mended now, though the count said in an interview that he doesn't see her often and that he doesn't have her phone number.

Apparently count Raoul is also the godfather of Pss Mathilde:

'Nonkel Henri', count Henri d'Udekem d'Acoz (eldest brother of Mathilde's father, the late count Patrick) has donated his castle, the Couthof in Proven, Poperinge, to his nephew Count Bernhard d'Udekem d'Acoz.

Count Henri doesn't have any children himself. 'Bernhard is the only son of count Raoul d'Udekem, who is the 2nd of the Udekem brothers. Bernhard will be the 'head' of the family after his uncle and father pass away. Although the castle is on his name, he has no plans to move their yet. His uncle and aunt will remain in the castle for now.

Count Bernhard is a civil engeneer and lives in Ruddervoorde and used to be a member of the municipial counsil. He is married to the historian Jkvr. Marie-Pierre Verhaegen and has two sons (Pierre and François) and one daughter (Charlotte). They already live in a castle; castle Raepenburg in Ruddervoorde that used to belong to the Outryve d'Ydewalle family of the mother of count Henri. His wife is the author of a book about Belgian nobles in the resistance movement during WWII btw.

The castle will be renovated. Lately the house has fallen a bit in decay, count Henri has even received an official warning from the monument organisation & risks a fine if he lets the property fall apart further. After the renovations the castle will be open to the public on saturdays from 10.00- 16.00.

Raoul d' Udekem d'Acoz, uncle and godfather of Queen Mathilde, gave an interview to VTM's royalty. The count said that Flemish seperatist politician Bart de Wever is right: ' Belgium is an impossible country, Flanders and Wallonia are two seperate republics'.

he does have praise for the king and queen and says that they are doing well. He also adds that with Frank van Daele they have a very wise counsillor.

The count used to be a member of the Christian Democrat party and is a Fleming.

http://www.nieuwsblad.be/article/det...41019_01329207

Edit:
note that in 2009 the count was accusing his Losange nieces and nephew of mending the family feud with their uncle Henri for material reasons: the uncle doesn't have any children and the inheritance still has to be devided. They did not go to count Raoul yet, as he says he has 4 children that will share his inheritance.

http://www.clint.be/nieuws/prinses-m...s-nonkel-henri

In 2014 Count Raoul repeated once again that there was no contact with the Losange branch of the family.

An article from 18 october 2014 about Henri d'Udekem d'Acoz, Mathilde's uncle:

Oom van Mathilde verdacht van oplichting - De Standaard

http://www.7sur7.be/7s7/fr/1502/Belg...roquerie.dhtml

Apparently the count is suspected of fraud. Together with another suspect he tried to take 100.000 euros in bribes from a man, by selling plots of agriculture land as plots of plots of land where it is allowed to build on, with the promise to arrange building permits. This has been going on for 4 years.

When the article was printed, the court in Gent was taking the case into consideration.

***

This was followed up by this article from 15 April 2015.

http://www.gva.be/cnt/dmf20150415_01...strafrechtbank

The case has been sent to the court in Gent. The second suspect is Henri's employe Hans Velle. The plaintive is Hugo Wolfcarius.

The count denies involvement. But apparently there is an illigally recorded tape in the possession of Wolfcarius where Henri says that he is the 'boss' in this affair.

There is no evidence that a payment was ever made.

***
And another one from April 28th.

http://kw.knack.be/west-vlaanderen/n...al-181049.html

The count is recovering from an operation of his prostate. He can already sit in a chair but due to his knees has to use a wheel chair. His wife Marie-Madeleine is taking care of him.

They decline to say anything about the case, other than that the count is innocent.

Mathilde is such a great queen, too bad she keeps being kinda dragged down by her family, her father and uncles have really liked to do things the "wrong" way.

The family seems to have (had) a troubled relationship indeed. There seems to be an amount of bad blood between the uncles and Mathilde's mother in particular. I suppose one could argue that it was a good preparation for HM's life with her in-laws.

For now the uncle is only a suspect so let's see how things will develop.
