Kate Middleton’s Nurse Blames Hospital Staff In Suicide Note
Jacintha Saldanha, the nurse from Kate Middleton‘s hospital who hung herself last week after putting through the “royal prank” call, left three suicide notes, one of which condemned the hospital and its staff for their treatment of her after the call.
While the full contents of the notes have not been made public, the Saldanha’s family has been given transcripts. According to the Daily Mirror:
In one, the distraught mum-of-two outlines how she struggled to come to terms with the prank call by Mel Greig and Michael Christian to the hospital where pregnant Duchess Kate was being treated for severe morning sickness.
But in another she criticises senior colleagues at the King Edward VII hospital over her treatment after the pair had pretended to be the Queen and Prince Charles asking about the duchess’s condition. That note is said to have left her family furious.
A source close to Jacintha’s family said: “One of the letters, which is the longest, deals with the hospital and is critical in its tone. Needless to say, Ben wants a full inquiry into what happened, and he wants to make sure the truth comes out. Within the letter Jacintha calls into question some of the treatment she received at the hospital.”
Saldanha’s family has requested an independent inquiry into what happened at the hospital in the days after the prank.
