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.

Click to read story in the very respectable, very proper, U.K. ‘The Telegraph’. There is also a video of the statement made by the hospital.

Read more and see more pictures in the U.K. ‘Daily Mail’, my preferred U.K. newspaper of all time — a nice cross between ‘high brow’ and ‘tabloid’.
