The receptionist who was duped by two Australian DJs who were pretending to be Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles in order to get information on The Duchess of Cambridge has been found dead.

The woman's body was found at an address close to King Edward VII Hospital in London, where the Duchess was being treated, according to the UK's Daily Mail. Sources are suggesting the woman may have committed suicide.

Meanwhile, the DJs are facing a barrage of criticism on Twitter for continuing to play up their prank, even though they had apologized earlier in the week for the stunt.

More to come.
