OK, what I am about to say is my opinion on the situation.
By now, everyone should have heard about the two Australian radio hosts’ prank call to Kate Middleton’s nurse. I am sorry to say this but her nurse has been found dead. Here is my point of view on the situtaion from both sides of this tragic event.
RADIO HOSTS: Ok, they made a prank call to Kate’s nurse. Yes, their Queen Elizabeth accents were HOR-RI-BLE but people are forgetting that it was a joke! How were they suppose to know they were actually going to be connected to an actual nurse. It was a bad prank. Get over it. They did not do anything wrong. It is like prank calling President Obama or the Pope.
THE ROYALS: Not to be mean, but the nurse had problems. Who commits suicide over a stupid prank call?? Yes, she may have been going through hard times but who kills themselves and not think about their children? So what if she supposedly left a note for her family before her death. It still does not answer why she would leave her children to be raised without a mother.
RADIO HOSTS: I agree with them, they should have not done the prank. But, please remember it was just for fun. Yes, the results were sour and/or of poor taste but this is a way radio hosts attract listeners. I do not believe they should be investigated for this crime. What crime was committed? They did not tell the nurse to kill herself or she will be killed or threatened her in any kind of way. They did not bully her or the Royal Family.
THE ROYALS: Please note, this is a tragic loss for them, but do not try to make this bigger than what it is. The nurse’s family did not even know about the prank call until after her death. Maybe she was already planning to take her own life and used the prank call to place the blame on the radio hosts. There are endless scenarios/unknown events that could have lead up to this. The hospital nurses/staff should know what the Queen’s voice sounds like. It is not the same as a random person imitating Peter Griffin from Family Guy, if you watch the show a lot, you should know how Peter’s voice sounds. If you are attending to the needs of the Queen, unless she cannot speak for herself, you should know how her voice sounds as well.
CONCLUSION: A prank call was made…A nurse committed suicide…the media is trying to make this seem worse than it really is…Unknown information…Bad judgements were made…A lesson is here for anyone who likes to make prank calls (don’t do it…it’s stupid)
*This is all my opinion on the situation*
