The DJs from an Australian radio network, involved in a hoax targeting Prince William’s pregnant wife, Kate, are speaking out for the first time.
The DJs, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, who were impersonating Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles, called the hospital Tuesday and gained some information about the condition of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, which they subsequently played on air.
On Friday, the nurse who transferred the call, was found dead after apparently committing suicide.
Greig and Christian have apologized. They also apologized in interviews with the Australian TV shows “A Current Affair” and “Today Tonight” on Monday.
“There is nothing that can make me feel worse than what I feel right now,” Greig said on “Today Tonight.”
Christian told “A Current Affair” the prank had become “A tragic turn of events that I don’t think anyone could have predicted or expected.”
“I’m still trying to make sense of it all,” he said, offering “Our deepest sympathies” to the nurse’s family.
Their show has been canceled.
