Radio hosts place prank call, nurse gives them real details on the Duchess
One particular nurse at the King Edward VII Hospital in London, where Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton is currently at, is in serious trouble. She fell for a phone prank and revealed confidential information about the patient.Check out the whole thing in the video above: it’s the work of two radio hosts from Sydney-based station 2Day FM, who pretended to be Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles, and requested updates on Kate’s condition.
The pregnant Duchess, as it must already be known, is a patient there because she has an acute form of morning sickness.
Not only did the call get patched through but a very obliging – and quite flustered – nurse actually thought she was speaking to the Queen and revealed all she knew about Kate.
“This call was transferred through to a ward and a short conversation was held with one of the nursing staff. King Edward VII's Hospital deeply regrets this incident,” a spokesperson for the hospital says, adding that they’re currently “reviewing [their] telephone protocols.”
