A friend ours living in Paris informed us tonight that his very good friend Prince Antonius zu Fürstenberg, second son of the Fürst zu Fürstenberg and his wife, Princess Milana zu Windisch-Graetz, has become engaged to Matilde Borromeo.
The future bride was born in Milan on 8 August 1983 as the daughter of Count Carlo Ferdinando Borromeo by his wife Marion Sibylle Gabriele Zota.
Matilde's siblings have entered into fabulous alliances as well. Matilde's eldest sister, Isabella, is married to Ugo dei Conti Brachetti-Peretti; while her second eldest sister, Lavinia, is married to John Jacob Elkann, the Fiat heir.
It is rumored that her her half-sister "Beatrice," whose mother is Contessa Paola Marzotto, is most likely the Beatrice Borromeo who is currently dating Pierre Casiraghi, son of Princess Caroline of Monaco, herself the eldest sister of Prince Albert II, as well as the estranged wife of Prince Ernst August of Hannover.
