With all that Kate's been through the past few days, she really looks very healthy, doesn't she?   Her eyes look clear and bright and that's where we would have noticed any signs of fatigue.   No amount of make-up could hide that.   They obviously took great care of her.

I liked how his sweater and her scarf coordinated. :)  Kate actually looked pretty good--sometimes she wears her eyeliner a little to heavy and her hair a little fussy. She actually looks younger here.

Oh, come on, expecting the pranksters to be fired is a bit over the top I think.  They fully expected that the hospital would terminate their call as soon as they claimed it was the Queen and were amazed they were actually put through to the ward the Duchess was in.  The whole thing is just so absurd, it's unbelievable that anyone could really think it was HM!

I agree it was a silly thing to do but the mistake lies fair and square with the hospital - the switchboard operator for not screening the call for starters, the nurse involved if she did not follow correct protocols regarding giving out patient information or with the hospital itself if its privacy rules were lax.


Breaking news just now. The switchboard operator has committed suicide. Poor, poor woman.

Where did you hear this Kimberly?  I just searched BBC news and other sources and nobody is reporting it.  I sincerely hope that report is in error.

She was actually a nurse who had worked at the hospital for 4 years. She was the one who answered the call and then put the caller through to the ward nurse. The hospital apparently doesnot employ a switchboard operator as such over night. Hmm wonder if those oh so trendy DJs have heard yet.......

How horrible!

Here in the US, she would have been on the "Today" show and offered a book deal. What a difference between cultures and countries.

(I am not saying that a book deal would have been appropriate, I don't think it would have been, but the US is into "everyone gets 15 minutes of fame" and this would have been hers.)

Remember the couple who got into the State Dinner without an invitation? They got news coverage for days and every talk show and news show rambled on about them ad nausea.

Poor woman.

Amelia, they are not accountable for her death at all.  Nobody is responsible for another person choosing to end their life.  It was an embarrassing mistake but these always eventually blow over and this one would have as well.

Those two DJs and anyone else involved with that call will carry this with them for the rest of their lives.

The DJ's had no way of knowing this would happen.  Who would suspect this woman would kill herself over this?  

Sarah Palin got pranked the same way during the 2008 campaign (two Canadian DJ's pretended to be the President of France and she fell for it).  She was embarressed, yes, but didn't go so far as to kill herself.

WHOA!  Hold the phone there, dude.  I am not trying to "hijack" this thread, I was just making a comparison to another such prank.  That's all, no agenda here.  Chill.

As I said, there is no way anyone could suspect this poor nurse would go so far as to kill herself over this.

No NO..this is about crossing a border by the dj's..with this effect!!People better THINK beofre they think they can pull a joke next time..
but looking on fb and twitter it seems grey cells ran out at some point..and people just blabber  away and pull whatever gets to their head
without thinking..I condemn that,just as I condemn the ways others try to defend the wining ways of we couldn't know this or that...NO no..THINK !
A rare commodity..and even rarer by the day..or so it seems..in general that is.
