I think the Producers should think of consequences of all actions before making a management decision on any pranks.
Well, one thing that has me gob-smacked throughout the entire story is that the nurses believed the QUEEN was calling! I wonder when was the last time she ever personally made a phone call? I mean, seriously, do you believe she would have placed that call herself? I would have thought she'd have her assistant check it out and if she'd wanted to talk to Kate herself he could have gotten her on the line.
Not to mention that their accents didn't sound the least bit British and her voice certainly did not sound like the Queen.
As this was constantly broadcast she felt people were laughing at her and humiliating her. She may also have felt that she betrayed her employer, her neighbours had spoken of how proud she was of being the 'Queen's nurse.'
You're looking at this from a purely western viewpoint, and failing to take into account the sensibilities of someone who is not part of that tradition.
I have not heard any of that reported. I guess we're not getting as much info as you are.
You don't know how long she's been in the UK, do you? If she were born and bred there, it'd be a different story.
If I have the facts right, all she did was put the call through to the Nurse On Duty. That's a lot less to blame than the Nurse who gave out the info. Wouldn't THAT nurse have spotted the DJ wasn't really the Queen?
Did no one even question that the Queen was calling? That's the part that has me so surprised.
Jacintha Saldanha's brother Naveen said last night that she would have been "devastated" for accidentally helping a colleague to breach medical confidentiality rules over the Duchess of Cambridge.
"She would have felt much shame about the incident," he was reported as saying, adding that his devoutly Catholic sister was a "proper and righteous person".

I hate practical jokes.
I think the DJs were bullying and thus subject to the law.
