Royal radio hoaxers not prosecuted

– British prosecutors said Friday they will not press charges against two Australian DJs over the royal hoax call that preceded a nurse’s suicide.

Two Australian DJs impersonated Queen Elizabeth II and her son, Prince Charles, as they phoned London’s King Edward VII hospital in December to ask about the condition of the Duchess of Cambridge, formerly Kate Middleton, who had been hospitalized for treatment of acute morning sickness stemming from her pregnancy.

Nurse Jacintha Saldanha, who put the call through to a colleague who in turn described the details of Kate’s condition, was found hanged in her room three days after the prank was broadcast across the world.

The Crown Prosecution Service said that “however misguided, the telephone call was intended as a harmless prank.”

DJs Michael Christian and Mel Greig apologized in emotional interviews on Australian television. The radio show was taken off air and later canceled.
