Well, this is what they call a royal prank gone wrong.

After King Edward VII hospital released private information about pregnant Kate Middleton's condition to a prank caller impersonating Queen Elizabeth II, the tricksters, namely 2Day Australian radio hosts Mel Greig and Michael Christian, are now apologizing for their actions.

"Just on our royal prank call... we were very surprised that our call was put through, we thought we'd be hung up on as soon as they heard our terrible accents," Christian wrote on his Twitter account. "We're very sorry if we've caused any issues and we're glad to hear that Kate is doing well."

Greig also apologized via the social media site:

"We thought we'd be hung up on as soon as they heard our terrible accents, we're very sorry if we've caused any issues for Kate or the nurse," she tweeted. "It was honestly meant as fun and I do hope the nurse and Kate are OK."

Christian and Greig posted their conversation with the nurse on 2Day's show website. The audio has since been removed.
