Two radio DJs broke the law when they prank-called a hospital caring for the Duchess of Cambridge, Australia's high court has ruled.
Mel Greig and Michael Christian were put through to a nurse at King Edward VII, who gave information about the Duchess' condition after being told the call was from the Queen and Prince Charles.
Indian-born Jacintha Saldana, 46, committed suicide three days later.
The decision in favour of the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) came after a challenge by radio station 2Day FM, which argued that the watchdog did not have the authority to rule that the actions were illegal.
Following the high court ruling, the station could be fined or lose its licence.
Greig and Christian have since apologised for the prank, with Greig attending Saldana's inquest in London.

Barack Obama has told reporters "as far as I can tell, there was nothing new" in Benjamin Netanyahu's address to Congress in which the Israeli Prime Minister slammed the US-led nuclear talks with Iran.
"The prime minister didn't offer any viable alternatives," the US President said, urging Congress to wait to evaluate a nuclear deal with Iran until an agreement is finalised. Obama said that he would only agree to a deal that prevents Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
It's the first time his voice has been heard outside the all too familiar and barbarous murder videos made by Islamic State.
The tape released today of Mohammed Emwazi was recorded in 2009.
Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi has expressed her extreme dismay over the comments made by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to the US Congress.
In a statement released online, she said:
As one who values the U.S. – Israel relationship, and loves Israel, I was near tears throughout the Prime Minister’s speech – saddened by the insult to the intelligence of the United States as part of the P5 +1 nations, and saddened by the condescension toward our knowledge of the threat posed by Iran and our broader commitment to preventing nuclear proliferation.
Today, Prime Minister Netanyahu reiterated something we all agree upon: a nuclear armed Iran is unacceptable to both our countries. We have all said that a bad deal is worse than no deal, and stopping the spread of nuclear weapons is the bedrock of our foreign policy and national security. As President Obama has said consistently, all options are on the table for preventing a nuclear-armed Iran.
