Family: Mathilde's cousins - part 2

On her father's side, queen Mathilde has four cousins.

It isn't clear whether they're in touch with Mathilde since Patrick d'Udekem had a very troubled relationship with his siblings.

1. Countess Anne d'Udekem d'Acoz (°1961)

Anne d'Udekem lives in Brussels.

2. Countess Diane d'Udekem d'Acoz (° 1963), married to jonkheer Benoît de Lhoneux (° 1956)

Diane d'Udekem teaches Latin to priests in formation at the Seminary of Namur.



Benoît de Lhoneux works as deputy manager at "Redco - Etex", a company also known as "Eternit" that produces roofing and insulating material.

The family lives in Namur and have 6 children:
1. Jonkheer Arnaud de Lhoneux (°1993) studies mechanical engineering at the Université Catholique de Louvain.

Marie-Pierre Verhaegen is a historian. She's published a well received non fiction book on the role of the Belgian aristocracy in WWII resistance.

Bernard will inherit the Couthof castle in Proven from his uncle Henri d'Udekem who has no children. Henri will live in the castle for as long as he lives, meanwhile Bernard has begun restauring it.
