"We're both nurses and it's devastating, you know. It's never supposed to happen. These things you think will never happen. It could've happened to anybody. We have many, many phone calls and you know, if somebody claims to be the Queen and phones you, I don't know what I should've done or anybody else must have done. You won't have time to think really."
