Queen's bra-fitter Rigby & Peller has Royal contract cancelled

Queen's bra-fitter Rigby & Peller has Royal contract cancelled

The Telegraph reports that the Queen's longtime lingerie supplier, Rigby & Peller, was formally stripped of its royal warrant because of a scandalous tell-all book the company's former owner had written, which includes stories about her years as the royal bra fitter.

June Kenton said Rigby & Peller lost the right to display the royal coat of arms in 2017 after she mentioned the royals in her book, Storm in a D-cup.

Mrs Kenton said there was "nothing" in the book to "be upset about", adding that it was an "unbelievable" decision. Kenton reveals such details as Princess Margaret's penchant for handmade swimwear (insisted on for her trips to Mustique) and describes giving Princess Diana posters of models in lingerie for her sons, William and Harry, "to put up in their studies at Eton". That's naughty, ' Kenton told The Associated Press. It has been reported the decision to cancel the warrant is linked with revelations in the book, though neither the palace nor the company would confirm that.

Kenton, who bought Rigby & Peller for £20,000 in 1982 with husband Harold, sold a majority stake in it for £8m.

Rigby & Peller, a high-end lingerie company, held the royal warrant for 57 years.

For centuries, royal warrants have been issued to trades people and companies who regularly supply goods or services to the monarchy. For example, Fortnum & Mason has a warrant as "Grocer & Provision Merchant" to the monarch.

"She's wonderful. I mean, don't you think she's incredible?"

The Royal Warrant Holders Association has yet to respond to the BBC.

Kia K3 - all-new Cerato Forte sketches released
The rear-end has been similarly tweaked borrowing from the Sportage with a horizontal strip connecting the tail-lights. Indeed, judging from the images, the new Forte is yet another departure from the Kia you think you used to know.

June Kenton, director of the London-based firm, published Storm in a D Cup in March past year.

"Shall I tell you what I do?"

Mrs Kenton, who started working for the Queen in the early 1980s, has been in the lingerie industry for more than 60 years. "I pretend to listen to Margaret and then, once she has gone, I order what I want". "That's between you and the customer".

Buckingham Palace said: "In respect of royal warrants, we never comment on individual companies".

Russell Tanguay, director of warrants at the Royal Warrant Holders Association, confirmed on Wednesday that the Knightsbridge-based retailer had lost its warrant.

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

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

"I probably should have submitted it to them but I didn't think anything would be required".
