RADIO pranksters duped the nurse caring for the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge – by pretending to be the Queen, Prince Charles and a CORGI.

Brazen Aussie DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian caused a right royal fury after fooling the woman into divulging Kate’s treatment and intimate medical details.

They were stunned when they called King Edward VII Hospital and were instantly connected to the Duchess’s private nurse, who is looking after Kate as she battles chronic morning sickness.

The nurse gave the presenters a run-down on Kate’s vital signs.

The hospital today verified that the call from Greig and Christian, who appear on Australia’s 2Day FM, was genuine.

It said it would now be reviewing telephone procedures and criticised the outlandish stunt as “a foolish prank call that we all deplore”.

A hospital spokesman said: “King Edward VII’s Hospital Sister Agnes can confirm that an Australian radio station made a hoax call to the hospital in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

“This call was transferred through to a ward and a short conversation was held with one of the nursing staff. King Edward VII’s Hospital deeply regrets this incident.”

John Lofthouse, chief executive of the hospital, added: “This was a foolish prank call that we all deplore.

“We take patient confidentiality extremely seriously and we are now reviewing our telephone protocols.”

The call came after Prince William left his wife’s beside last night after a six-hour vigil.

Kate was said to be feeling better but will continue to receive treatment for the next few days
