The Queen has fired her lingerie designer after the release of a tell-all book

Her Majesty is most displeased.

The Queen’s bra-fitter, Rigby & Peller, has been stripped of its royal warrant.

The luxury lingerie brand held the warrant for the last 57 years but lost it following the release of the brand’s owners tell-all memoir.

June Kenton’s autobiography, Storm in D-Cup, goes into detail about bra-fittings with the Queen, Princess Diana and Princess Margaret. In her book she discusses how the Queen would come to the appointment with her corgis and how Princess Diana would request posters of lingerie models for William and Harry.

The Knightsbridge London store on the day it was announced their royal warrant would be stripped.

“It is very sad for me that they didn’t like it and I’m finding that very difficult to accept. It’s horrible and a real shock. I never ever thought when I was writing the book that it would upset anyone. I’ve had the royal warrant for so long I never imagined that this would happen,” Kenton told The Telegraph.

“I have never discussed anything of a personal nature with any of my clients, and I never would. The book doesn’t contain anything naughty,” she continued.

Kenton reportedly received a letter from the Lord Chamberlain last year confirming that the luxury brand would have its royal warrant removed following the book. Rigby & Peller will now have to remove the royal coat of arms from any promotional material and shop signs.
