The two Australian radio presenters who made the hoax call to the King Edward VII private hospital have both deleted their Twitter accounts and been suspended by the radio station in the wake of the death of Jacintha Saldanha.
The nurse Jacintha Saldanha received their hoax call and passed it on the the hospital ward where Kate was because she thought it was genuine.
Mel Greig and Michael Christian, hosts of 2DayFM’s ‘Hot 30 Countdown’ evening show, were the DJs who made the prank call to the hospital two days ago, where they pretended to be the Queen and Prince Charles.
The station gained huge publicity from the stunt, while the pair described the incident as ‘the easiest prank call ever made’ shortly afterwards.
The prank call infuriated hospital bosses however, who threatened legal action.
Ms Greig had also retweeted messages with the #royalprank hashtag to her 9,000 followers hours before her account was shut down.
Today both Greig and Christian had deleted their accounts on Twitter.
