Kate Middleton Prank Call: Royal Hospital Falls for Australian Radio Hoax [LISTEN]

Michael Christian: We've been handed a phone number and we have been told that this phone number is the hospital where Kate Middleton is currently staying. We thought we'd give it a call. We don't want to cause any trouble, don't want to stress her out. But I reckon we could maybe get her on the radio tonight

Mel Greig: I don't know. I mean everybody will be trying this

Christian: Well this is why I've thought of a plan. We can't just ring up and say 'hi it's MC and Mel from Summer30, can we chat to Kate?' It's not gonna happen. You are going to be the Queen

Greig: This is awesome

Christian: I'm going to be Prince Charles. Ben and Em so you're involved as well, we thought you could be the royal corgis, if you're ok with that? I'm going to dial this number. So you're going to be the queen

Greig: Hello I'm the Queen.

Christian: Hello. Prince Charles over her mummy

Greig: Oh, you're Prince Charles I like your ears

Christian: Let's give this hospital a call and see if we can get Kate Middleton or maybe even Prince Wills on the phone tonight. Oh I hope this happens


Receptionist: Hello good morning King Edward Hospital

Greig: Oh hello there, could I speak to Kate please, my granddaughter

Receptionist: Oh yes, just hold on ma'am

Greig: Thank you

Christian: Are they putting us through?

Greig: Yes


Christian: If this has worked, it's the easiest prank call ever made. You're accent sucked by the way, I just want you to know

Greig: I'm not used to playing 80-year-olds. (Phone connects) Kate my darling are you there?

Nurse: Good morning ma'am this is the nurses station how may I help you?

Greig: Hello I'm just after my granddaughter Kate. I wanted to see how her little tummy bug is going

Nurse: She's sleeping at the moment and has had an uneventful night, sleep is good for her. She's been given some fluids to re-hydrate her as she was quite dehydrated when she came in. But she's stable at the moment

Greig: Oh ok. Well I'll just feed my little corgis then. So when is a good time to come and visit her? Because I'm the Queen and I'll need a lift down. Charles! When can you take me to the hospital Charles?

Christian: When will it be alright to come down and see her? Maybe in the morning or something? If that's ok.

Nurse: I would suggest that any time after nine o'clock would be suitable, because the doctor will be in in the morning and we'll just be getting her freshened up. I would think any time after nine.

Christian: Is Wills still there or has he gone? I haven't spoken to him yet

Nurse: He went home at about half past nine last night. Actually, probably about nine o clock last night

Christian: Lovely. But they're all ok, everything's alright?

Nurse: Yes she's quite stable at the moment. She hasn't had any retching with me since I've been on duty. And she has been sleeping on and off

Christian: Wonderful

Nurse: I think it's difficult sleeping in a strange bed as well

Charles and William

Christian: Yes, of course! It's hardly the Palace is it!

Greig: It's nothing like the Palace is it Charles. Oh when are you going to walk those bloody corgis?

Christian: Mumsey, I'll go and take the dogs outside

Greig: I need to go and visit Kate in the morning. My dear thank you so much

Nurse: You're very welcome

Greig: Bye

Christian: Bye


Greig: She was giving us real information!

Christian: Mumsey I think that they believed everything we said

Greig: I am the Queen bow for me

Christian: Bow for you and your terrible accent
