2Day FM Kate Middleton prank audio: DJs Mel Greig, Michael Christian say sorry for nurse prank

King Edward VII hospital in London is still upset after being pranked by two radio DJs who called and spoke to Kate Middleton's nurse -- and now, the two Australians DJs are apologizing for the call.

The DJs, from Sydney's 2Day FM station, made a prank call to the hospital where Prince William's pregnant wife, Catherine, is staying with acute morning sickness, claiming to be Queen Elizabeth II and her son, Prince Charles.

The pair succeeded in getting through to Kate's private nurse at King Edward VII Hospital and had a brief conversation that included some details of her condition, according to audio of the call posted online.

The hospital issued a statement Wednesday confirming that the hoax call had been transferred to a ward in the early hours of Tuesday morning and a short conversation was held with one of the nursing staff.

The hospital "deeply regrets" the incident, it said.

John Lofthouse, chief executive at the hospital, is quoted as saying: "This was a foolish prank call that we all deplore. We take patient confidentiality extremely seriously and we are now reviewing our telephone protocols."

Prince William's office at Clarence House has not commented on the incident
