Estibalis Chavez, a poor Mexican teenager who famously went on hunger strike outside the British embassy in Mexico City in a bid to get an invite to the royal wedding, was turned away at a London airport by guards who told her she did not have enough money for a safe place to stay during the event, the Associated Press reports.

Octavio Fitch Lazo, a Good Samaritan who was moved by Chavez's determination, lent Chavez $1,250 for her flight to London and drove her to the airport in Mexico City.

The teen, however, told him on Monday that she was turned away and sent back to Spain by customs officers. Lazo said that Chavez could reenter England if she found someone to pick her up at the airport; Chavez is now contacting journalists in Madrid, where she is staying while she awaits return to London.

The determined teen flew out of Mexico City last Thursday, nearly two months after she was rejected outside the embassy despite having a letter from a representative of Prince William in hopes of getting to catch a glimpse of the royal wedding.

Chavez's fascination with the royal family goes back to her childhood. Her father told her that her mother, who died giving birth to her, adored Princess Dianna. Despite this endearing fact, many Mexicans mocked her as the "crazy lady of the embassy" during her hunger strike back in February.

Lazo told the Associated Press: "She is going to try to go back to England. So far, we don't know how she is going to do it."
