Receptionist who transferred prank call about Middleton 'found dead'

British media outlets are reporting today that the receptionist who transferred a prank call to hospital staff taking care of Kate Middleton has been found dead.

The Duchess of Cambridge had been attending a hospital in London for morning sickness.

The Daily Mail has reported that the woman's body was found at an address yards away from King Edward VII Hospital, where she worked, yesterday morning.

Two days earlier, the receptionist took a phone call from two Australian DJs pretending to be the Queen and Prince Charles.

She transferred a call to a nurse who divulged information about Ms Middleton's health.

Investigations are underway.
