A receptionist at the hospital where Kate Middleton was treated for morning sickness this week has been found dead ... and suicide is suspected -- after she mistakenly transferred a prank radio call to Kate's hospital room.

According to law enforcement, the woman was found dead at an address near King Edward VII hospital, where she worked, around 9:30 AM this morning.

Paramedics were dispatched to the scene but were unable to revive her. Scotland Yard is treating the death as a possible suicide.

The woman was the victim of a prank by an Australian radio station, which called King Edward VII hospital on Wednesday pretending to be the Queen of England (with a terrible accent) and asking to speak to Kate.

Idk about over there but here if you give out confidential (anything medical related) info about a patient even to people in the patients family, or even just looking it up when it doesn't pertain to you or your dept will get you fired.
The poor woman was probably not only fired but blacklisted. Who knows what kind of hate she received from the public about this.

I just saw this on the news. She didn't get in trouble from the hospital, they were supportive of her, but the embarrassment of being victim of the prank is what drove her to take her life. This makes me so sad. Those DJs went too far with this prank and now they have to live with a death on their conscience. I hope it haunts them forever.
