A FEMALE army cadet at the world-famous Sandhurst has been found dead in an apparent suicide after a drunken night out.
The unnamed woman, 21, was trained Wednesday in her room at the Royal Military Academy – where both Princess William and Harry trained.
Top brass confirmed that an investigation had been initiated by Thames Valley Police.
It is feared to be the first suicide by a female cadet at the base of Surrey.
Insiders confirmed that she was involved in an investigation into a drunken bash at the base.
One source said: "The standards are high at Sandhurst, they train the next generation of military and world leaders, so she was asked about the circumstances by her seniors.

"She was spoken as part of a broader investigation."
It is believed that the drunken night took place during the weekend and the woman was supposed to have slept in another barrack. But there is no accusation of wrongdoing other than that she does not return to her barracks at night.
While suicides happen on military bases, they are almost unheard of Sandhurst.
Fellow cadets were deeply grieved yesterday by the tragic news.
