Australian radio hosts managed to impersonate Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles and received confidential information about the Duchess of Cambridge's medical condition, in a hoax phone call to the King Edward VII hospital where the pregnant Duchess was staying and which was broadcast on-air. The controversial prank took a dark twist three days later with the death of nurse Saldanha, a 46-year-old mother of two, who was duped by the DJs despite their Australian accents.

Royal hoax leads to nurse's death

Jacintha Saldanha, a nurse at King Edward VII hospital in London, committed suicide after taking a hoax call from Australian DJs about the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge. The Australian radio station behind the prank call said it will donate its advertising revenue

until the end of the year to a fund for the family of the nurse.
