The R in London

Just curious for anyone with a good knowledge of the history of language (or borrowing of words between them), how did so many Romance languages end up with an R after the D in London? For example, Londres in Portuguese, Galician, Spanish, Catalan, French, etc, Londra in Italian. Anyone know?
