During a hearing at Westminster Coroner's Court expected to last no longer than 10 minutes, the opening of a public inquest into Ms Saldanha's death will learn how she died, and be given a brief outline of surrounding circumstances.
The 46-year-old mother of two died three days after she was duped by Australian radio presenters making a prank call to the hospital where she worked and where Prince William's pregnant wife Catherine was a patient.
Ms Saldanha's lifeless body was found on Friday at staff quarters nearby the exclusive King Edward VII Hospital.

British media outlets report she had been dead for some time when paramedics arrived.
During an address to parliament on Wednesday UK Prime Minister David Cameron paid tribute to Ms Saldanha and indicated that investigations into her death would continue.
"She clearly loved her job, loved her work and cared deeply about the health of her patients and what has happened is a complete tragedy," Mr Cameron said.

"There will be many lessons that need to be learnt."
Sydney-based 2Day FM presenters Mel Greig and Michael Christian are expected to be interviewed by NSW Police as part of the coronial investigation.
The pair posed as the Queen and Prince Charles when they prank called the hospital for details about Catherine who was being treated for acute morning sickness.
Both Greig and Christian, along with network management, have extended their condolences to Ms Saldanha's family.
Sky News on Wednesday reported that Ms Saldanha had not shared news of the hoax call with her family - husband Benedict Barboza and children Junal, 17, and 14-year-old Lisha - before her death.
She is reported to have left them a note, the details of which have not been made public.
Thursday's coronial mention is due to start at 9.30am (8.30pm AEDT) and at its conclusion, be adjourned to a later date.
