Queen’s bra-fitter loses royal title

Rigby & Peller, the company who supplied lingerie to the Queen, have lost their royal warrant over a book which revealed details of royal bra fittings. The luxury underwear firm founded in London had held the royal warrant since 1960.

Rigby & Peller held the royal warrant for 57 years, but now it was withdrawn after June Kenton, who fitted bras for the Queen, released a book called 'Storm in a D-Cup', which goes into detail about fittings with the Queen, Princess Diana and Princess Margaret.

She 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”.

Mrs Kenton said:

"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."

Buckingham Palace said:

“In respect of royal warrants, we never comment.”
