The Walled Village promo is a reference to Carcassonne. Governor is a reference to Puerto Rico. Is this a reference to another game as well?

Nope, just a post-series request by Jay, from what Donald has said.

I thought it might have been a tie-in with UK Royal Family's birth of prince George. His birth date was 2013, while this card was 2014, but it still seems like it could've fit.

I remember testing a card called Prince back in Prosperity. It was a totally different card, but that's the first one I remember called Prince. Donald tended to reuse names because he already had clip-art for them to use in his playtest sets. And then at some point a name would stick to a card that was published and he would have to come up with a new name for the next thing. So, no special significance to the name Prince.

It was probably his dog's name.

It's a name meant to convey the functionality! The idea is that you're a king, and you do stuff, playing actions, you know. The Prince does less stuff, in fact just one particular thing, but he does it every turn like you do stuff every turn.
