Queen's bra-fitter stripped of royal title after 'tell-all' book

The Queen has dropped Kensington-based bra fitters Rigby & Peller after former owner June Kenton gave details of her bra fittings in her book.

Since the incident, Ms Kenton explained that it was never her intention to upset anyone.

Ms Kenton insists her autobiography was no tell-all book.

A spokesperson for Ms Kenton told i she "did not think that writing her memoirs would cause such a problem as it is only her life story which she wanted to get down on paper".

Rigby & Peller now have stores in and around London as well as in some of the most prestigious shopping locations. "I've had the royal warrant for so long I never imagined that this would happen".

In one passage, she writes about "measuring the half-dressed monarch in front of her corgis", The Sun reports, while another portion recounts a conversation with the Queen Mother. Mrs Kenton, who with her husband Harold bought Rigby & Peller for £20,000 in 1982, sold a majority stake in it for £8million in 2011. "She's wonderful. I mean, don't you think she's unbelievable?"

Kenton said that the book is mainly about herself - a "gentle" narrative of her life which she is "proud" of and eager to share.

Royal warrants are the official mark given to suppliers to Britain's royal family and often offer a major commercial boost for companies.

Facebook says big changes are coming to your news feed
But Thursday's shift goes beyond previous changes by prioritising posts that spur substantive interactions between people. According to Zuckerberg , Facebook users complained that public content is crowding out personal moments.

'This is hard for me to say, but I don't want her to go with this, ' she said.

The book discussed meetings with the Queen and other noted members of the royal family at Buckingham Palace.

She insists her autobiography not a tell-all book, and said she even sent a copy to Buckingham Palace when the book was published previous year.

The book detailed his time as a butler to Prince Charles and Princess Diana at Highgrove House in Gloucestershire and his move to Diana's staff after their divorce.

Kenton, 82, also claimed that the Queen Mum once confided in her that she would only "pretend to listen" to her daughter, Princess Margaret, whenever Margaret would offer her mother style advice about hats.

"In respect of Royal warrants, we never comment on individual companies", the statement said.

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

The company - which has been supplying luxury lingerie since 1960 - added it was "not able to elaborate further on the cancellation out of respect for her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Warrant Holders Association".
