THE Queen’s official lingerie supplier Rigby & Peller was stripped of its royal title after the owner published a tell-all book about palace bra fittings.June Kenton, whose company held the royal warrant for 57 years, penned intimate details about measuring the half-dressed monarch in front of her corgis.But the 82-year-old’s long relationship with the Queen ended shortly after her book, Storm in a D-Cup, was published in March 2016, according to the Daily Express.Mrs Kenton bought Rigby & Peller with her husband for £20,000 in 1982 and transformed the company into a leading retailer before selling her stake for £8million in 2011.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.Her book reveals details about her working relationship with other royals including Princess Diana, Princess Margaret and the Queen Mother.Mrs Kenton, who described herself as “the UK’s leading boobologist”, said in an interview to promote her work that  “even the grandest ladies need to be well-supported”.She also told how the Queen Mother once said that she “pretends to listen” to Princess Margaret’s choice of hats when her milliner came for fittings but that “once she has gone, I order what I want.” Mrs Kenton wrote about Princess Diana’s bra fittings, adding that she would accept posters of lingerie and swimwear models for sons William and Harry to put up at their Eton digs.Russell Tanguay, director of warrants at the Royal Warrant Holders Association, confirmed to the Express that Rigby & Peller, whose flagship store is near Harrods in Knightsbridge, had lost its warrant “in the middle of last year”.He explained that firms have a time limit before they have to remove the royal coat of arms from promotional material and shop signs.Buckingham Palace said: “In respect of royal warrants, we never comment.” Both bras and briefs from Rigby & Peller can cost upwards of £100.We pay for your stories!
