Police officers Patrol Outside King Edward VII Hospital As News Emerges That A Nurse Duped By Two Australian DJs Has Committed Suicide

Royal Hoax Call Nurse At London Hospital Treating Kate Middleton Commits Suicide

A nurse at the London hospital that treated Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, has committed suicide — two days after being duped by a hoax call from an Australian radio station.

Mother-of-two Jacintha Saldanha, who worked at the Edward VII hospital in Central London, was found dead this morning at an address in Central London.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said:

“Police were called at approximately 9.35am this morning to a report of a woman found unconscious at an address in Weymouth Street, W1.

“London Ambulance Service attended and the woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Inquiries are continuing to establish the circumstances of the incident.”

Saldanha, a nurse of four year’s standing at the Edward VII hospital, was the first one to speak to two Australian DJ’s from 2Day FM who impersonated the Queen and Charles, Prince of Wales on Tuesday.

Even though Saldanha did not actually divulge details about Kate Middleton’s morning sickness to the DJ’s — Mel Greig and Michael Christian — she did transfer the call to the ward where Kate was being treated.

After Saldanha’s body was found, emergency services were called and two ambulances were despatched to the central London residence.
