Jacintha Saldanha, the London nurse duped by two Australian DJs looking for updates on pregnant Kate Middleton's condition, left three suicide notes before she hanged herself last Friday, sources tell The Guardian.

According to the report, one of the notes criticized the staff at King Edward VII, Saldanha's former place of employment and site at which she committed suicide.

The other two notes were reportedly about how Saldanha handled the hoax in its aftermath and her requests for funeral arrangements.

In response to the Guardian's report, a spokesperson for the hospital released a statement defending its management's handling of the hoax.

"There have been reports today about the alleged contents of one of the notes found in Jacintha's room. No-one at the hospital has seen these notes, and so we cannot comment on the reports or their accuracy," the statement read.

"Following the hoax call, hospital management offered her their support and told her that they considered her the victim of a cruel hoax. They stood by her actions, and made it clear there was no criticism of her, and that there would be no disciplinary action of any kind," it continued."

Saldanha, 46, hung herself Friday morning inside the nurses' quarters at the hospital, where Middleton was being treated for hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe form of morning sickness.

A few days prior, she took a prank phone call from Australian radio DJs Mel Greig And Michael Christian, who rang pretending to be Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles. Saldanha transferred the call to another nurse, who subsequently gave the DJs an update on Middleton's condition.

Middleton and her husband, Prince William, later released a statement, saying they were "deeply saddened" by the last Friday's events.
