Not only daughter, but also mother is getting married very soon!

Princess Virginia of Furstenberg, who turned 43 thirteen days ago [only child together of Prince Sebastian of Fürstenberg (b.1950) & his wife Elisabetta (Bettina), nee Guarnati (b.1951] got engaged to Janusz Gawronski (b.1960) recently.

She was already married twice: she married firstly in 1992 Baron Alessandro Csillaghy de Pacsér (b.1967) by whom she had two children: Miklos Tassilo (b.1992) & Ginevra (b.1995, engaged to Andi Jassimi recently).
In 2002, a year before they officially divorced, she had a daughter Clara, by Giovanni Bacco Dondi dall' Orologio.
A year after her divorce she married secondly Paco Polenghi (b.1969) by who she had two sons:Otto (b.2006) & Santiago (DOB unknown); this marriage also ended.

Her only brother, Ernesto Furstenberg Fassio (b.1981) [out-of-wedlock son of her father] is married to Alessandra Di Cola by whom he has two children: Camilla (b.2006) & Sebastian (b.2009).

Princess Sophie von Schoenaich-Carolath (b.8 June 1988) [daughter of Prince Sebastian von Schoenaich-Carolath (b.1957) & his wife Manuela-Franziska, nee Countess von Walderdorff (b.1959] got engaged to Rudolf Henkell von Ribbentrop (b.1989) [son of Countess Christiane von und zu Eltz genannt Faust von Stromberg (b.1951) {herself daughter of Baroness Ladislaja Mayr von Melnhof (*1920) & her second husband Jakob, Count von und zu Eltz genannt Faust von Stromberg (1921-2006)} & her current husband Adolf Henkell von Ribbentrop (b.1935) {himself son of Joachim von Ribbentrop, Foreign Minister of Nazi Germany from 1938 until 1945 (1893-1946) & his wife Anna Elisabeth "Anelise" Henkell (1896-1973)} this year.

Sophie is third of six living children and first one who marries; her oldest brother Georg died in 1994 aged nine.

Rudolf has a full brother Friedrich (b.1990) who is single, and two older half-brothers [from his mother's first marriage to Georg Enoch, Baron von und zu Guttenberg (b.1946) whom she divorced in 1977:
Baron Karl Theodor von und zu Guttenberg (b.1971) [Federal Minister for Economics and Technology in 2009 and as Federal Minister of Defence from 2009 to 2011] married to Countess Stephanie von Bismarck-Schönhausen (b.1976) [only daughter of Andreas Graf von Bismarck-Schönhausen (1941-2013) & his second wife, Charlotte Kinberg (b.1951); great-great-granddaughter of the first Chancellor of Germany Otto von Bismarck] and father of Anna (b.2001) & Mathilde (b.2002)
Baron Philipp Franz von und zu Guttenberg (b.1973) married to Honourable Alexandra Louisa Macdonald (b.1973) [daughter of Godfrey James Macdonald, 8th Baron Macdonald of Slate (b.1947) & his wife Claire Catlow] and father of Johannes (b.2004), Felix (b.2005) & Antonia (b.2009).

Curious thing: while bridegrrom to be & his full brother are grandsons of a Nazi criminal, (not difficult to guess after WHOM their father got his name) history of their half-brothers' family were on the completely opposite site (source - biography of Karl-Theodor zu Gutenberg in English Wikipedia):

"His grandfather, Karl Theodor Freiherr von und zu Guttenberg (1921–1972), was a CSU politician and hard-line conservative during the Cold War, noted for his opposition to the Ostpolitik. During the Second World War he narrowly escaped execution after refusing to kill Jews, stating that he would rather shoot SS members.Several other members of Guttenberg’s family also offered resistance to the Nazi regime, among them his great-grandfather Georg Enoch Freiherr von und zu Guttenberg, and Karl Ludwig Freiherr von und zu Guttenberg, a great-great-uncle of Guttenberg. Karl Ludwig was a Catholic monarchist, who prior to the Second World War published the "Weiße Blätter" (White Papers), an important publication of the conservative opposition to the Nazi regime. He belonged to the circle of anti-Hitler conspirators around Hans von Dohnányi, Justus Delbrück, and Hans Oster. After the failure of the 20 July plot he was arrested and later executed."

Very interesting family!
