>> this is awesome.

>> i'm going to be prince charles .

>> i'm the queen.

>> simply dialing up this very private hospital .

>> are they putting us through?

>> yes.

>> if this worked, it's the easiest prank call we've ever made.

>> good morning, this is the nurses speaking.

>> hello, i'm after my granddaughter kate . i want to see --

>> she's sleeping at the moment and she's getting some fluids to rehydrate her because she was quite dehydrated when she came in.

>> when is a good time to come and visit her because i'm the queen and i need a lift down there.

>> nothing like the palace is it, charles? and when are you going to --

>> reporter: this morning the deejays are apologizing as themselves.

>> yeah. what was meant to be a simple prank call with very terrible accents with the expectation of being hung up on has turned into something huge.

>> and tweeting, we're very sorry if we caused any issues for kate or the nurse. the performance getting terrible reviews from the hospital.

>> i'm not impressed. i have to say. our nurses are caring professional people trained to look after patients. not to cope with journalistic trickery of this sort.

>> reporter: well, it's suspect that the deejays are saying they only meant to wish her well. they're calling her at 5:30 in the morning, what would they have done if they'd been patched in to her. put her voice on the air while she's ill in the hospital?
