England (www.incnow.tv) – As the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, continues to receive treatment for an illness during her first trimester of pregnancy the hospital where she is being treated is in some hot water after a recent phone prank.

Two Australian radio DJ's pretending to be the Queen and Prince Charles prank called the hospital ward where Kate is staying and managed to speak with one of Kate's private nurses about how the Duchess' is feeling.

After the prank was discovered the hospital released a statement saying it "deeply regrets" giving out information about Kate's condition adding "This was a foolish prank call that we all deplore."

The royal couple recently announced the pregnancy sooner than had hoped. They were forced to break the news after the world discovered Kate was suffering from a condition called Hyperemesis Gravidarum, a crippling form of morning sickness, and had to be admitted to the hospital on Monday.

The palace released a statement saying that the Duchess of Cambridge is continuing to feel better but remains in the hospital and will continue to be treated for her acute nausea.

Kate is barely 12 weeks into her pregnancy.
