@celebuzz we certainly can’t say they caused her death. Contributed to it, yes, but not caused it. Suicide is a complicated thing.

This all started on Wednesday morning when Saldanha answered the phone at 5.30 a.m. in King Edward VII’s hospital and transferred the call through to Middleton’s ward.
Another nurse then told the giggling DJs, who were pretending to be the Queen and Prince Charles, how the Duchess was about to “get freshened up.”
Just a few days later, the mother-of-two was tragically found dead at an address nearby the hospital — in what Scotland Yard is treating as a suicide.
“Their Royal Highnesses were looked after so wonderfully well at all times by everybody at King Edward VII Hospital, and their thoughts and prayers are with Jacintha Saldanha’s family, friends and colleagues at this very sad time,” the spokesperson said in a statement released on Friday.
The news of Jacinda’s death has shocked millions — do you think she felt guilty for revealing details about the royal family? Are the DJs to blame for her suicide? Leave a comment below.
