Background to the royal hoax call

  • Australian DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian made the hoax call to the King Edward VII's hospital in central London posing as the Queen and Prince of Wales when Kate was being treated for a rare form of pregnancy sickness.
  • Nurse Jacintha Saldanha, who transferred them to a colleague, who then described Kate's condition in detail, was found hanged a few days after the incident.
