The Chancellor George Osborne has issued a statement saying he is ‘honoured’ by the decision of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to name the future heir to the throne after him.
However, some constitutional experts have controversially claimed the royal baby – to be called George Alexander Louis – is in fact a salute to the baby’s great-great-grandfather King George VI, made popular in the film the King’s Speech rather than being named after a third-rate politician who looks like a bit of a knob.
In response to the speculation, a spokesperson for the chancellor said:
The Chancellor and the royal prince have a lot in common. One is a helpless, dribbling infantile crawler, who soils himself regularly and hasn’t even learnt to count yet – and the other is a 2-day old baby.
