Is the castle still owned by the family or was it sold off after the Princess died in 1971?

The castle was actually sold before that, in 1974. It was sold to Tibor Rosenbaum who was a friend/acquentance of Prince Bernhard. He was originally from Hungary, became a Mossad agent for a while and later worked as a banker in Geneva. Mr. Rosenbaum however had embazzled money from a Rotschild owned bank and he went bankrupt in the same year (1974). After his bankruptcy the castle was sold to the Avenarius family indeed. On the website of the castle the Rosenbaum sale is however not mentioned.

The gardens of Castle Warmelo were re-created in the 1920s.
Baroness Creutz and Hugo Poortman re-created them.
There is a French garden and an English garden.
