Princess Virginia (Ira) of Fürstenberg is the oldest child of Prince Tassilo of Fürstenberg (1903-1989), by his first wife Claire Agnelli (b. 1920). Princess Ira was born in Rome on 18 April 1940. She married first Prince Alfonso of Hohenlohe-Langenburg (1924-2003) in 1955 (divorced 1960) and secondly in 1961 (divorced 1964) Francisco Pignatari (1916-1977).
As happened to Queen Margrethe II of Denmark's celebrations, several guests invited to Princess Ira's party had to cancel due to the closed airspace.
