Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, was in Washington last night celebrating the birth of George Alexander Louis of Cambridge.
British Ambassador Peter Westmacott, host of the reception, joked that it was pegged to the release of the British economy’s growth figures. He then gave a champagne toast welcoming the first son of Prince William and the former Kate Middleton.
Inside was a cake bearing the baby prince’s title. Nearby, a photo collage of the royal family with a picture of the Duke of Cambridge and his mother, the late Diana, Princess of Wales.
Benjamin Chang, a senior vice president with Albright Stonebridge Group, wore a Union Jack belt.
