Apparently England doesn’t have HIPPA regulations, because two Australian radio DJs from Sydney’s 2Day FM called King Edward VII Hospital pretending to be Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles. And Kate Middelton‘s nurse told them everything. Gawker (via USA Today)
…..two Australian radio DJs were busy getting first-hand intel straight from the nurse’s mouth. Mel Greig and Michael Christian, hosts of The Summer 30 program on Sydney’s 2Day FM radio station decided to phone up King Edward VII Hospital and ask to speak with the Duchess while pretending to be her in-laws, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles. Much to their surprise, and despite their admittedly terrible accents, the prank worked like a charm, and they were patched through to Kate’s private nurse, who was more than happy to spill every last detail on the mother-to-be’s “tummy bug.” After news broke that King Edward VII had been played for a right fool, the hospital released a statement confirming that a hoax call had been made, and that it deeply regrets the incident. “This was a foolish prank call that we all deplore,” hospital chief executive John Lofthouse said in the statement. “We take patient confidentiality extremely seriously and we are now reviewing our telephone protocols.”
Everybody with an English accent sounds gay or like they work at the Death Star to me, but even I can do a better accent than this. I’m pretty sure whoever this nurse is got fired, but the hospital is gonna feel really dumb when she writes a tell-all book or joins the Rebel Alliance.
