They could have also chosen William as a nod to his father the Duke of Cambridge, but also perhaps Michael as a middle name out of respect for Kate's father.

Sam or Samuel had been suggested as a possibility too - Kate's friend the jockey Sam Waley-Cohen was said to have helped William and Kate reconcile after their split in 2007.
