I care, and so do a lot of other Brits. The baby will one day be our monarch, and regardless of whether or not some people out there believe in monarchy, some of us do appreciate and respect it.
As for the nurse, I think there has been other stuff going on in her personal life, and the prank call was the tipping point. Within 24hrs, that poor woman is splashed on headlines all over the world, probably facing pressure from work and God knows what else.
Different people react to situations better or worse than others, sadly she obviously couldn't handle it and ended her own life.
It's tragic, and the DJs should be feeling guilty about it, however, it was just a practical joke gone wrong, they obviously didn't intend for any harm to come from it.
