The Queen's Bra Fitter Loses Contract After Tell-All Book

The Queen's Bra Fitter Loses Contract After Tell-All Book

The posh company which supplies lingerie to the British Monarch has lost its royal status following publication of a book revealing intimate details surrounding royal bra fittings.

The 82-year-old former bra fitter did not submit a copy of her book to the palace before publishing because she didn't think it was necessary.

The decision to withdraw the coveted business honor from the London-based company came after the woman entrusted with the task of fitting out the Queen took to print. I've never said one single word every time I've been about the Queen, ' she said. It's disgusting and a real shock.

While the company has held the United Kingdom royal warrant since 1960, she only took over the role in the 1980s.

She said: "It is very sad for me that they didn't like it and I'm finding that very hard to accept". We thought it was a lovely, colourful life story. She was surprised at the response as, in her mind, "The book doesn't contain anything naughty". "She is not disloyal".

The royal family is in the public eye near-constantly. This has actually destroyed her.

Mrs Kenton said losing the warrant "absolutely killed" her and that she regrets "not being wise enough" to omit mention of the royals in her autobiography.

Mrs Kenton enjoyed a rags to riches story, starting off on a clothes still in Brixton Market.

Rigby & Peller received the Royal Warrant in 1960. Ms Kenton quoted the Queen Mother as saying.

In addition to the Royals, the brand has a number of high-profile clients including Gwyneth Paltrow and Kim Kardashian.

However, the former owner of the lingerie company, June Kenton, made a move that did not sit well with the monarch.

Kenton, who bought Rigby & Peller for £20,000 in 1982 with husband Harold, sold a majority stake in it for £8m. There was no great personal detail included, yet somehow it's been portrayed to be a kiss and tell like Paul Burrell did on Diana.

What has Buckingham Palace said?

The loss of the royal warrant was confirmed by the Royal Warrant Holders Association on Tuesday (9 January).

"This has all deeply hurt my mother, particularly the way it was done". But Queen Elizabeth II still managed to get her own way. And after all these years of giving such unbelievable service. We are not attacking the Royal Family, we just find it all so odd. It was a dead cut off - and that is so sad for my mum at her age.

There are now about 800 holders representing a cross-section of trade and industry. "I'm proud of my life and what I've achieved and I simply want to share that".

Kenton said she had been told by Buckingham Palace six months ago that they "didn't like the book" and she should no longer have a royal warrant.

Rigby & Peller has held the royal warrant since 1960.

The Royal Warrant Holders Association said it does not comment on decisions regarding individual Royal Warrants or companies.
