Why is the name Rose a ‘nod to royalty’?

The Express website ponders why Pippa and James – who married in May 2017 – may have selected the name Rose for the little one.

The publication claims: “Rose has been the name of some royals across the centuries, including Mary Tudor, known as ‘Mary Rose’, Queen of France.”
