It was all fun and games when an Aussie radio show called the King Edward VII Hospital to try and prank their way into getting info on Kate Middleton's condition earlier this week.

However, the receptionist who fell for the joke has now been found dead and the cause of her demise is thought to be suicide.

According to a report, Scotland Yard is investigating the death and for now are calling it “unexplained,” but an inside source told press, “She appears to have killed herself.”

A rep from the authorities declared, "Police were called at approximately 9.25 a.m. on Friday, December 7, to a report of a woman found unconscious an address in Weymouth Street, W1. London Ambulance Service attended, and the woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Inquiries are continuing to establish the circumstances of the incident. The death is not being treated as suspicious at this stage."
