I sympathize with the concern of the article's author, but I figured it had something to do with the fact that Wales, after English conquest, was a pricipality "within" the kingdom of England, hence King Edward I of England designating his eldest son the first English Prince of Wales, which of course has been the title reserved for the English monarch's eldest or only son ever since. I don't know how St. David's Cross could be incorporated on the Union Jack other than St. George's Cross having a gold border.
