After the announcement that Kate Middleton – the Duchess of Cambridge, if you’re being official – was pregnant, the focus has been hardcore on the Royal Family. But things got a little, uh, unpleasant for Kate when she was hit with acute morning sickness.
Luckily for her, she was released from the hospital Thursday after being treated, smiling as she left the hospital with a bouquet of yellow roses. As Kate and Prince William left the hospital, the couple’s office (they have their own office?) said that she was headed to Kensington Palace in London for some rest and relaxation; she had been in the hospital since Monday.
Oddly, two Australian radio deejays impersonating Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles made a prank call to the hospital on Tuesday – actually persuading a nurse to tell them all about Kate’s condition. The two radio personalities apologized for the call, admitting that they were surprised that their call was put through, despite horrible British accents.
In a sad twist, the nurse responsible for transferring the deejays to Kate’s hospital room was found dead on Friday – a victim of an apparent suicide. Law enforcement officials say that they aren’t planning on conducting a criminal investigation at this point, believing there was no foul play.
The Australian radio company, Southern Cross Austero, issues a statement saying: “SCA and the hosts have decided that they will not return to their radio show until further notice out of respect for what can only be described as a tragedy.”
Stay tuned for more info….
