Why the Queen has sacked royal bra fitter

Queen Princess Diana Rigby & Peller GETTYQueen Elizabeth II Bra-fitter dropped for revealing details about Prince Harry William and Diana

A company which supplied lingerie to the Queen has lost its royal warrant over a book which revealed details of royal bra fittings.

According to Kenton, Princess Diana would reportedly take home "posters showing models in lingerie and swimwear to give to princes William and Harry to display in their Eton studies", The Daily Telegraph reports.

The book came out in March of previous year, but now Her Majesty has responded definitively (if not swiftly) by revoking the lingerie supplier's royal warrant.

"The royal household warrants committee has chose to cancel the royal warrant granted to Rigby & Peller and Mrs June Kenton", the brand said in a statement.

Buckingham Palace, meanwhile, told the Express that it would "never comment on individual companies".

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

The Royal Warrant Holders Association diligently catalogs these esteemed businesses: Burberry, for example, serves as the Queen's official weatherproofers, while Hunter supplies waterproof footwear (aka Wellies).

Rigby & Peller must now remove the royal coat of arms from any promotional material and shop signs.

Insisting it was a sweet story of a corsetiere, Mrs Kenton said: "I probably should have submitted it to them but I didn't think anything would be required".

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

June, whose company held the royal warrant for 57 years, penned intimate details about measuring the half-dressed monarch in front of her corgis.

"I'm coming towards the end of my life, I'm 82, so it is what it is, there is nothing I can do".

"I only ever said I went there [to Buckingham Palace], not what happened", the BBC quoted her as saying. "I can't fight with Buckingham Palace and I wouldn't want to, but it's hard". "I have never, ever spoken about what I do there with her, or the Queen Mother or Princess Margaret". While a palace spokesperson said that the reason was because of "significant decline in the trading relationship" between the Duke of Edinburgh and the iconic store, it was rumoured that the royal was angered by allegations made by owner Mohamed al Fayed who claimed that the monarchy has caused the 1997 Paris auto crash that killed Diana, Princess of Wales and his son, Dodi.
