In an interview with Channel 9 in Australia, the two DJ's at the heart of the Kate Middleton hospital phone prank which caused the suicide of a nurse who believed she was speaking to Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles, the two DJ's said they were heartbroken and shattered and never thought the prank would actually even work. “I'm shattered, gutted, heartbroken,” Christian said. “Mel and myself are incredibly sorry for the situation and what's happened. I had the idea. … It was just a simple harmless phone call. It was going to go on for 30 seconds. We were going to get hung up on.” When asked about the moment she heard about the suicide of the nurse, Mel Greig said, “It was the worst phone call I've ever had in my life,” she said through tears. “There's not a minute that goes by that we don't think about her family and the thought that we may have played a part in that is gut-wrenching. We wanted to be hung up on with our silly voices and wanted a 20-second segment to air of us doing stupid voice. … Not for a second did we expect to even speak to Kate or even have a conversation with anyone at the hospital. We wanted to be hung up on.” They thought that 100 other radio stations had already probably tried the same prank.
