Two Australian DJs, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, rang the King Edward VII Hospital in the early hours of Tuesday morning, pretending to be the Queen and asking to speak to "Kate, my granddaughter."

They were transferred to the nurse taking care of the Duchess of Cambridge, who disclosed details of her condition.

The hospital called the stunt "deplorable" and said they were "reviewing" their telephone protocols.
