Yes, Helene and Mathilde definitely related, one can tell that by just looking at the pictures. Thanks Catherine!

(I'm quite 'shocked' by the fact that there apparently are more people who bought the giant big hat that Maxima wore last summer. It really is huge! :))

Well yes, but I honestly believe that Mathilde is the most beautiful one of the sisters

From this week's point de vue.

At the magnificent castle of Ooidonk the engagement was celebrated of the baron 't Kint de Roodebeke with Coralie Waucquez. The baron is the eldest son of the count 't Kint de Roodebake who's the master of the castle. There was a dining buffet to celebrate, one of the guests was prince Philippe (no Mathilde), Mathilde's sister countess Elisabeth d'Udekem d'Acoz was also present with her fiancé markgraf Pallavicini (named "prince Pallavicini in point de vue :)).

Here are the pictures. I also add some of the castle (ooidonk.be, castles.nl)

The photo of Mathilde's parents is lovely. It is one of the only photos I recall of her father smiling so broadly. Has there been any news about Countess Elisabeth's fiance? From the photo above his face looks rather pinched but his eyes sparkle as though he may have a dry wit! Any idea when the wedding will be -- and where?

I hope he has dry wit, I love that kind of humor :)

I know nothing about the wedding date, but my guess is it will be this summer.

well I think her futur husband is "markgraf" Pallavicini (and not prince, a mistake from point de vue), so I guess she'll become "markgrafin Pallavicini".

What is the name of the village Mathilde's family lives in? I am curious to know what it looks like? Does anyone have a picture or know the name?

From this week's Royalty episode: an interview with Mathilde's father and a look around the castle where she grew up:

The castle of Losange was built in the 18th century. It lies in a park, surrounded by 4 big lakes and near to a forest. It isn't built in the typical style of the region (the Ardennes).

Coincidence of history; it was in this castle that princess Marie José of Belgium celebrated her engagement to crown prince Umberto of Italy. King Albert I also regularly visited the castle when he was in the neighbourhood driving his motor.

Mathilde's family bought the castle in 1958. It was put up for sale, abandoned and in a terrible state. Count Patrick d'Udekem and his wife, countess Anna Komorowska (married in 1971) completely restaured it.

Mathilde's father shows a portrait of an ancestor who was mayor of the city Leuven in the 18th century. Most of the family portraits perished in a fire just after the second world war.

In another building on the estate apartments are installed and rented. Mathilde's father explains that -like for most castle owners- it has become necessary to cover the huge expenses of such an estate. The roofing has to be replaced this summer and the castle needs a new layer of paint. As he says "Nowadays you don't notice the difference anymore between the landlord and the gardener. You will find the landlord more often in his garden and his forest than in his home. It's our duty, and a heavy one, to maintain all of this. But we make the most of it because it's a very nice life and we love living in the country".

He adds "A lot of people think that being noble comes with a lot of priviledges, but that's completely wrong. We have a lot of duties and no special rights. The feudal times are long past and everybody's equal by law. Our heritage comes with a lot of duties that we take pride in fulfilling and our only right is to respect others."

They don't seem to have financial problems, but they're certainly not among the richest noble families of Belgium.

Catherine thank you for that translation. I don't understand spoken French so it was very useful to be able to read what he said. What a beautiful setting to live in!
