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.
