Radio Station of Kate Middleton Prank DJs Pledge At Least £326,000 to Nurse's Family

While a 'suicide note' has been reported by the Evening Standard, and the family of Jacintha Saldanha are looking and asking for answers from the hospital where she worked, the radio station from which the hoax call was broadcast has pledged a minimum of £326,000 to the family, as well as cancelling their Christmas party in a gesture of respect, according to The Telegraph.

Jacintha Saldanha was the nurse who died in a suspected suicide after answering the hoax call made by an Australian radio station, asking to speak to Kate Middleton and claiming to be the queen. However, while it seems that the radio station's act is one of goodwill, it could also be read as an admission of responsibility, which is risky business given the current climate of suing anyone and everyone for the smallest of misdemeanours (a judge in the US is suing a launderers for $65m for losing his trousers). 

The family are naturally distressed and looking for answers. At the moment, however, they're looking to the hospital to give them the information and reason that they feel they need. The chairman of the Commons home affairs committee, said: "What the family need are the full facts... The chairman of the hospital said... that there are inquiries going on in the hospital." Adding, however, "That is not sufficient for the family. There are unexplained circumstances. The family want to know everything. All the facts, fully and clearly. The hospital needs to be more proactive, a full inquiry is needed and the family need to be included in that." 

While it's understandable to feel the need to place blame it seems there are multiple directions that the responsibility for Ms Saldanha's tragic death could take. Simply put, it's unlikely for there to be a simple answer. For now, we wish her whole family all the best, and hope that at least they can find peace of mind eventually.
