Kate Middleton Pranksters Show Teary-Eyed Remorse After Radio Station Terminates Their Show!

Filed under: Royals RoyceKate MiddletonSad Sad

So sad!

When Aussie DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian called King Edward VII Hospital last week posing as Royals, they were unprepared for what would follow!

Nurse Jacintha Saldanha took her own life, and the DJs are left trying to figure out what went wrong as their radio station tries to ensure this horrendously unfortunate event can never be replicated

Ch-ch-check out the genuinely heartbreaking first interview the radio personalities gave after learning about the passing of Kate Middleton's nurse (above)!

Regardless of the appropriateness of the prank, it's clear Mike and Mel are sorry for how their actions may have contributed to Jacintha's death.

The 2Day FM station has since canceled the morning show, suspended advertising sales, banned any further prank calls, and began a company-wide review of "relevant company policies and processes."

The world is deeply saddened by this senseless tragedy.

Hopefully Jacintha's husband and kids are coping as well as can be expected.

Kate Middleton Hospital Prank DJs Work For Radio Station Known For Scandalous Tricks!

Filed under: Media MinuteKate MiddletonSad Sad

Well this is just odd!

It seems 2DayFM, the Australian radio station that suspended DJs Michael Christian and Mel Greig for their Kate Middleton hospital prank, has a history of orchestrating dangerous hoaxes!

Back in 2009 another program on the station called the Kyle and Jackie O Show paid a listener $1000 to call her sister and try and make her believe that their mother had been horribly injured and needed medical assistance…

UMMMM WTF?!?!!

Well, the sister DID call authorities and paramedics rushed to the scene, where they obviously found the mother to be perfectly fine.

Police even ended up launching an investigation into the prank!

THEN later on in 2009, the same 2dayFM radio show thought it would be funny to

The 2DayFM DJ duo have now appeared in two interviews, and during their discussion with A Current Affair, the pair stated:

Scotland Yard Considering Launching Criminal Probe Into Kate Middleton Prank Call

We figured it would only be a matter of time until this happened.

The world is still in shock over the suicide of Jacintha Saldanha, a nurse at the hospital where Kate Middleton was being treated for severe morning sickness who transferred the prank call from Australian radio DJs pretending to be Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles that ultimately led to the Dutchess' nurse revealing the details of her medical history live over the air, and now, it appears that Scotland Yard has gotten involved…and may be launching an investigation into the hoax!

A spokesman with the Metropolitan Police has revealed:

"Officers have been in contact with Australian authorities."

However, Nick Kaldas, the deputy commissioner for New South Wales Police, confirmed:

"It hasn't been indicated to us that an offense has occurred and they have not actually asked for anything yet. They've simply touched base, let us know of their interest and they will get back to us if they actually want something done. Nothing has been requested of us yet."

Sad.

It's unclear to what extent their joke phone call contributed to Jacintha Saldanha's decision to kill herself, but the 2Day FM DJs behind the Royal prank agreed to decline comment and, for now, quit their show.

The station owners released a statement regarding the whole, frustratingly tragic ordeal and the fates Australian DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian.

It reads:
