32-year-old Sophie Agnew had worked for Kate for seven years and her role was dismissed following the separation of households in Sussex and Cambridge.
Sophie, like Kate, is an art historian in St. Andrews and has been held responsible for the Duchess' personal assistants.
She recently knotted the deal with the director of the insurance company, Stuart Hill, and the timing of the decision has sparked further unrest.
"Sophie worked so hard for Kate," one of her friends told The Daily Mail.
"She loved her job and made many sacrifices."
& # 39; The timing of the redundancy is said to have contributed to the unrest. "Sophie just got married and returned from her honeymoon," the friend added.

The adjutant, who was never against minor tasks, was spotted with a Longchamp pilot bag and a suitcase with Williams cipher as the Cambridges arrived in 2016 for their weeklong journey through India and Bhutan.
She also accompanied the couple on their travels to Australia and New Zealand in 2014, and was regularly spotted by Kate's side.
The brothers and their wives were expected to set up a "Fab Four," but that soon changed after Meghan married into the royal family.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex left Kensington Palace to find a new home in Frogmore Cottage, Windsor. Their charitable foundations also parted ways.
The Duchess' private secretary, Rebecca Deacon, left office in 2017. Miss Deacon, who was often discreetly behind her royal boss during engagements, played an important role in the wedding of the Duke and Duchess.
"It's true that Sophie left after seven years of service," affirmed a senior source.
