Hospital Nurse In Kate Middleton Radio Prank Found Dead Of Apparent Suicide

Dec 7, 2012 10:20 AM


We bet these radio DJ's feel a little bit responsible!

The nurse that spilled the beans on Kate Middleton's condition when an Australian radio station prank called the King Edward VII hospital has been found dead of a suspected suicide, TMZ reports.

Jacintha Saldanha was found dead this morning at an address near the hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated for morning sickness. Paramedics arrived at the scene but were unable to revive her.

Saldanha mistakenly believed the Queen of England was calling to check on her grandson's wife's health and breached confidentiality when she transferred the call through to the attending nurse on Kate's floor, who revealed the expectant royal had an "uneventful night" and was about to "get freshened up."

"Jacintha has worked at the King Edward VII Hospital for more than four years. She was an excellent nurse and well respected and popular with all of her colleagues. We can confirm that Jacintha was recently the victim of a hoax call to the hospital. The hospital had been supporting her throughout this difficult time," the hospital said in a statement.

The radio station issued an apology hours after they successfully pulled off the prank, saying,"We were very surprised that our call was put through. We thought we'd be hung up on as soon as they heard our terrible accents. We're very sorry if we've caused any issues and we're glad to hear that Kate is doing well."

Saldanha leaves behind a husband and two young children.

The palace has yet to comment on the sad news.

How tragic!

Kate Middleton has chosen Petit Tresor in Beverly Hills to outfit the nursery for her baby with Prince William.

A source from the luxury baby boutique tells X17online exclusively that the Duchess of Cambridge personally called the store from her hospital bed in London.

We've been told Kate wants the baby's room to have a "European and traditional look" and that she "absolutely loves the Notte Fatata collection."

Employees from the boutique will be flown out to London to decorate the room with items from the Notte Fatata collection, which is sold exclusively through Petit Tresor.

Kate apparently has her eyes on the Notte Fatata crib which sells for $8,340.00. The store's website describes it as:

    What is extraordinary about the Notte Fatata line is that it is made with the same attention to detail and craftsmanship as all the pieces that have been manufactured since 1941. This family run three-generation business uses all of the ancient furniture making techniques that were used for centuries - making antique quality pieces for the lords and queens of the world.

What a doting dad-to-be!

Prince William might be the future King of England, but his main priority for the next nine months will be tending to his pregnant wife Kate Middleton! After the couple announced this morning on their official website they were expecting their first child together, the Duchess of Cambridge was admitted to Central London hospital after suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, which is an extreme form of morning sickness.

The condition, although not serious, often lands expecting mothers in the hospital, as it frequently requires supplementary hydration and nutrients. Symptoms of HG include severe nausea, vomiting, weight loss, dehydration, lightheadedness and fainting. Poor Kate! That sounds miserable!

Even if she's under the weather, we're sure she's over the moon a royal baby is finally on the way!

These two are literally glowing!

Prince William and Kate Middleton paid a visit to Cambridge today for the opening of a new hospital, and the royal couple were greeted by thousands of fans and well wishers! The Duchess chose to wear a pale pink MaxMara Belli overcoat, and although the weather was chilly, was there another reason she was all covered up?

According to reports, Wills and Kate are expecting their first child, and are set to make an announcement sometime in December.

So what kind of parents will these two be?

"William is much like Diana and will definitely be a hands-on dad and not rely heavily on nannies to raise his and Catherine's children. They both try to be as normal as possible in their private lives, and that of course is going to continue when they have children," a source tells Life & Style.

We hope the rumors are true!
