Royal Tragedy

This story’s really upsetting.  The British nurse who allowed a prank radio-station call to go through to England’s future queen when she was staying at the hospital committed suicide.  While it’s unfortunate that Kate Middleton got an annoying call, it’s shocking that nurse Jacintha Saldanha felt that she had to kill herself to make amends for her understandable mistake.

Let’s pretend that Middleton was just an ordinary Brit whom the tabloids did not care about.  Would anyone have cared then if she’d received a prank call?

It’s truly a sad moment when a royal prank leads to tragedy.
