Queen Elizabeth's bra-fitter, Rigby & Peller, has been fired. The luxury lingerie brand held its royal warrant for the past 57 years, but lost it after the release of the brand owner's tell-all memoir.
June Kenton’s book, 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 Prince William and Prince Harry.
"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 when the book was published. Rigby & Peller will now have to remove the royal coat of arms from any promotional material and shop signs.
