Princess and Playboy free on bond

September 30, 1960

The AP reports from Mexico City that Princess Ira zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg and Francisco "Baby" Pignatari, the Brazilian playboy,  are free on bail "pending trial on charges of adultery brought by her husband."
The Italian-born Princess, 20, and her Brazilian boyfriend, 43, "each posted $2,400 bond to escape going to jail until the case comes to court."  Both have denied the charges.

The former Princess Ira zu Fürstenberg was only 15 when she married, Prince Alfonso zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg, 43, in a "whirlwind romance."  The prince is seeking a divorce, and custody of their two sons, ages 4 and 1.
