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."
