London, May 1 (ANI): Kate’s former favourite designer Daniella Issa Helayel reportedly took off to her native Brazil, upset at an apparent double snub - after Kate chose another designer and for not receiving an invitation to the big day.

A source close to the designer is adamant she was not on the guest list, even though Palace aides insisted Daniella was invited, reports the Daily Mail.

“Daniella was very upset, she couldn’t understand why she didn’t receive an invitation,” the source said.

“She would have loved to have gone - she’s always been very loyal and protective of Kate and she would never breach her confidence.

“Daniella and Kate haven’t had a fallout to warrant the snub so it was most bizarre,” the source added.

Daniella designed the blue dress Kate wore for the announcement of her engagement.

But she discovered at the 11th hour that Alexander McQueen’s creative director Sarah Burton was to design both Kate’s wedding gown and her evening party dress.

The friend said Daniella was also mystified by this snub. (ANI)
