Saint George: Was Baby Cambridge named after Lions and Wales winger George North?

WE KNOW that rugby and royalty go together like chocolate and orange. As if Mike Tindall’s marriage to Zara Phillips isn’t enough evidence, Prince William himself is a patron of the Welsh Rugby Union, while brother Harry is his opposite number at the RFU. So we’re sure that the Royal Baby will be picking up a ball and running with it as soon as his little feet can carry him. But was he named after a famous Welsh winger? As avid rugby fans, did Kate and Wills have George North’s try (below) from the first Lions Test in mind when they were naming their little one Prince George of Cambridge…?
