Queen Elizabeth's bra specialist loses job after publishing tell-all book

Queen's Elizabeth's favored bra shop loses privileges over former owner's book

While the company has held the United Kingdom royal warrant since 1960, she only took over the role in the 1980s.

June Kenton said Rigby & Peller lost its right to display the royal coat of arms after she mentioned the royals in Storm in a D-cup.

Kenton has told reporters she never discusses what happens in a fitting room, though the book does recount her first meeting with the monarch and her trepidation about being ushered into the royal bedroom.

The former owner of the firm told Associated Press she regretted her book had caused the business to lose its "Royal warrant" and meant no offence to the monarch or her family.

Russell Tanguay, director of warrants at the Royal Warrant Holders Association, would not go into details about the decision on Rigby & Peller.

Kenton regularly visited Buckingham Palace and served members of the royal family, including the Queen, the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret, and her autobiography provided some detail about her working relationship with them.

She went on: "I've been honourable throughout my life - it's unbelievable they don't like the book, there's nothing in it that they could remotely be upset about".

"It is very sad for me that they didn't like [the book] and I'm finding that very hard to accept".

An upmarket lingerie brand has been stripped of its Royal Warrant after almost six decades. June told The Telegraph that she received a letter from the Lord Chamberlain in 2018 informing her that Rigby & Peller would be relieved of its duties as the official royal bra fitting company because of her book.

"I'm coming towards the end of my life, I'm 82, so it is what is it, there is nothing I can do". "I pretend to listen to Margaret and then, once she has gone, I order what I want".

Now there are three people, known as the grantors, who may award them - the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, and the Prince of Wales.

The Royal Warrants Association says 20 to 40 Royal Warrants are cancelled every year, but a similar number also granted.

The Palace declined to comment on Thursday. While a palace spokesperson said that the reason was because of "significant decline in the trading relationship" between the Duke of Edinburgh and the iconic store, it was rumoured that the royal was angered by allegations made by owner Mohamed al Fayed who claimed that the monarchy has caused the 1997 Paris vehicle crash that killed Diana, Princess of Wales and his son, Dodi.
