Queen Princess Diana Rigby & Peller

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.

Rigby & Peller now have stores in and around London as well as in some of the most prestigious shopping locations.

In addition to a new royal bra fitter, the Queen is also in the market for a new chef, according to the recent report in the video below.

"There's nothing in there that makes you think, 'Oh!" Ms Kenton is credited for the brand's global success.

A royal warrant is a mark of recognition for those who supply specific goods or services to the Royal Household.

There are now about 800 royal warrant holders, including individuals, small firms and global conglomerates. That's naughty, ' " she said in the interview. She regularly travelled to Buckingham Palace to conduct fittings for the Queen over the span of nearly 35 years, and even claims that she became "good friends" with Diana when it turned out they both attended the same sports rehabilitation clinic in Chiswick, West London, every week.

While carrying out her official "corsetiere" duties, she visited Buckingham Palace regularly, serving members of the royal family, including the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret.

"Shall I tell you what I do?"

June Kenton compared one of the Queen's personal apartments at the Palace to "an old-fashioned dentist's waiting room". "I pretend to listen to Margaret and then, once she has gone, I order what I want".

The 82-year-old bra-fitter wrote: 'I never met William or Harry - though [Princess Diana] was always talking about them.

In the autobiography, Ms Kenton wrote about fitting the Queen, who reportedly had her corgis present. "That's between you and the customer".

What has Buckingham Palace said?

.

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

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

Yesterday Russell Tanguay, director of warrants at the Royal Warrant Holders Association, confirmed that Rigby & Peller, whose flagship store is near Harrods in Knightsbridge, had lost its warrant.

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

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

"I am completely and utterly heartbroken".

"I've been honourable throughout my life - it's unbelievable they don't like the book, there's nothing in it that they could remotely be upset about".
