Queen’s bra fitter had Royal warrant stripped after writing ‘tell-all’ book

2 min read

The monarch's bra-fitter was stripped of its Royal warrant as an official supplier after the owner wrote a ‘tell-all’ book with information about the Queen.

Working with the Royals often brings an expectation of a level of discretion and privacy.

Rigby & Peller, an upmarket lingerie firm, fitted bras for Her Majesty but were stripped of their title after the owner June Kenton spoke out.

In her book, which came out in March 2017, the author wrote about fitting bras for a "half-dressed Queen".

By 2018 they were no longer the official "corsetiere" to the Queen due to the book ‘Storm In A D Cup’, reports the BBC.

However, Mrs Kenton says the details in her book were “lovely and sweet”, and it was simply her amazing life story.

She previously said: "I just wrote my life story, from World War Two until now. It's just a story of all the amazing things I have been fortunate enough to experience."

When asked about her comments on the Queen, she said they were "all very nice" and insisted "it's not a kiss and tell story at all".

"I have never stepped out of line," she added. "There's nothing naughty in the book at all.”

A Rigby & Peller spokeswoman said at the time: "The Royal Household Warrants Committee has decided to cancel the Royal Warrant granted to Rigby & Peller and Mrs June Kenton.

"Rigby & Peller is deeply saddened by this decision and is not able to elaborate further on the cancellation out of respect for her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Warrant Holders Association.

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

However, one book the Queen and the Palace has approved of his is the one by her dresser and confidante Angela Kelly.

Angela, who was the daughter of a dockworker in Liverpool, was given The Queen's support for her tell-all book – The Other Side of The Coin: The Queen, The Dresser and the Wardrobe.

The decision to support the book is unprecedented, proving just how highly regarded she is by the Queen.
