This is so sad. The woman, who was duped into thinking she was talking to the Queen by 2 Australian Radio DJ's, commited suicide today.

Jacintha Saldanha was a Nurse at the private hospital which treated the Duchess of Cambridge two days after being duped by an amateurish hoax from an Australian radio station.

The body of Jacintha Saldanha was found at an address yards away from King Edward VII Hospital, where she worked, just before 9.30am today.

The King Edward VII hospital said it made the announcement with 'very deep sadness.'

In a statement the hospital said "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 over her colleagues.”

Jacintha Saldanha was married with 2 children.

Below is a picture of the two DJ's who pranked her. I hope they are proud of themselves today.
