I am at a loss. As a Brit, deep down, I knew that none of the nurses duped by the Aussies would get disciplined — and that the Royals would maintain a stiff upper lip without censuring those who thought they were doing the right thing. As somebody who enjoys practical jokes, it distresses me that a bit of innocent fun could lead to this; she was the mother of 2 kids. Possibly there is more to this than we currently know. While she might have been upset, this was not ‘huge’. But, she might have been new to the U.K. I wish Prince William had taken a minute to talk to the two nurses and tell them that it was ‘OK’. But, he probably thought that it was not necessary. Yes, U.K. hospitals need to have a diluted form of the U.S. ‘HIPPA‘. I don’t know what to say. This is terrible.

Per a habit among us Brits I tried counting backwards, but it would appear that it is possible that they made the baby in France around the time the pictures were taken.
So here is the prank call to the hospital, and it cracks me up that a British hospital, in London no less, would actually think that the Queen will make a call:

For Kate Middleton and Prince William gossip from Kate’s school friend Jessica Hay, including a tantalizingly salacious titbit about a shared drunken kiss — made out as if this is something that most girls haven’t done sometime during their youth.
