Report: Kate Middleton Prank Call Receptionist Commits Suicide

The receptionist who put through a prank phone call from an Australian DJ asking of Kate Middleton's condition in hospital, has committed suicide. Two Australian DJ's pretending to be the Queen and Prince Charles with comedy accents were put through to the nurse caring for the Duchess at the King Edward VII hospital this week.

The woman was the first to pick up the call and happily transferred the call through to nurses. Sky News' Crime Correspondent Martin Brunt said: "It does appear that the receptionist who put the original call through has been found dead, thought to be suicide." The 30-year-old Duchess of Cambridge was being treated at the hospital for severe morning sickness, though the DJ's managed to gain details of her condition. "She's sleeping at the moment and she has had an uneventful night. She's been given some fluids. She's stable at the moment," the nurse informed the supposed Queen and Prince, according to the Associated Press. The hospital staff became a subject of mockery, with a spokesperson saying it's telephone protocols were being reviewed. 

The Australian station 2DayFM placed the recording of the conversation on its website, though DJ's Mel Greig and Michael Christian later apologized. "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," they said in a joint statement, "We're very sorry if we've caused any issues and we're glad to hear that Kate is doing well."
