Radio Prank fools nurse into divulging Duchess details

5 Dec, 2012

Two radio hosts from 2Day FM, a Sydney-based station, ring up the hospital pretending to be Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles. Their call went through a receptionist before they were transferred to the Duchess of Cambridge’s nurse. Host Mel Grieg pretended to be the Queen while Michael Christian played the part of the Prince of Wales and the barking “corgis.”

FAKE QUEEN: Kate my darling, are you there?

NURSE: Good morning ma’am, this is a nurse speaking. How may I help you?

FAKE QUEEN: Hello, I’m just after my granddaughter Kate, I wanted to see how her little tummy bug is going.

The nurse proceeds to divulge medical details to the “Queen” before telling her the best time for her and “Charles” to visit. In a statement the hospital “deeply regrets this incident.” and said they would be reviewing their telephone protocols.
