Staff treating Duchess of Cambridge fall for prank call

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge

Prank callers from an Australian radio station have managed to trick hospital staff treating the Duchess of Cambridge into giving away private information on her.

The radio presenters phoned the King Edward VII hospital in the early hours of Tuesday morning, pretending they were the Queen and Prince Charles.

Their call was transferred to one of the Duchess' private nurses who told them about Kate's medical condition and how she was feeling.

Hospital staff have said sorry for falling for the prank.
