Rigby & Peller: Queen's bra fitter loses royal warrant over tell-all book

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

She even stayed on the firm's board to fit the Queen's bras after Belgian company Van de Velde took on the company, which was awarded the royal warrant under its previous owners in 1960.

June Kenton, amid tears, revealed to the Associated Press that her shop was stripped of its warrant a year ago after the release of "Storm in a D-cup" last March. "Her Majesty calmly flicked on the main light switch, looked out of her window and said she hoped it wouldn't rain, as she had 8,000 people coming for tea".

"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".

"I never thought when I wrote the book that it would upset anyone".

Rigby & Peller's United Kingdom office and Belgian parent company Van de Velde were unavailable for comment when contacted by Lingerie Insight.

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.

In the autobiography, Ms Kenton wrote about fitting the Queen, who reportedly had her corgis present.

In addition, she mentioned that rumors that Princess Diana accepted posters of models in lingerie for her sons Prince William and Prince Harry.

Kenton herself, however, believes that it is because of her book, but does not understand why the Palace mistook her intentions. "I pretend to listen to Margaret and then, once she has gone, I order what I want".

Rigby & Peller is no longer allowed to display the royal coat of arms, confirmed the director of royal warrants at the Royal Warrants Holders Association.

The 82-year-old former bra fitter did not submit a copy of her book to the palace before publishing because she didn't think it was necessary.

Storm in a D-Cup reveals details about June's working relationship with other royals including Princess Diana, Princess Margaret and the Queen Mother.

Buckingham Palace said it did not "comment on individual companies". She also references Diana, Princess of Wales.

Luxury London lingerie shop Rigby & Peller had supplied unmentionables to the royal family since the 1900s and has held the Royal Warrant (a mark of exclusive suppliers to the Royal Households) for 57 years.

"However, the company will continue to provide an exemplary and discreet service to its clients", it said.
