Queen's Bra-Fitter Stripped Of Royal Warrant

Recommended Posts

'Storm In A D-Cup'

The Queen’s lingerie supplier, Rigby & Peller, has been stripped of  its royal warrant, after the company's former owner wrote a tell-all book about palace fittings.

The upmarket lingerie firm held the warrant for 57 years, but lost its royal approval after June Kenton wrote a memoir about her work.

The 82-year-old is known for transforming the brand into a world-leading retailer and her autobiography, Storm in D-Cup, goes into detail about fittings with the Queen, Princess Diana and Princess Margaret. 

In the book Mrs Kenton wrote about fitting the Queen, explaining that she was half-dressed and that her corgis were often present. (Truly Shocking, Ed.)

Mrs Kenton bought Rigby & Peller with her husband in 1982, paying £20,000, but sold her stake for £8million 29 years later to Van de Velde.

Another symbolic example of the decline in morals in wider society and the tacky and distasteful seeing nothing wrong in 'monetising' any aspect of ones past dealings with others and betraying the confidences of others  (i.e. 'tell all' for a price).   Even more distasteful from those, like this woman, who likely have no real need for the few extra pennies.  So very American.

According to Amazon books, customers who bought this book also bought 'The Joy Of Big Knickers' by Kate Garraway.

It's completely unacceptable for someone providing such a personal service to go public. 

Shocking behaviour which shows a total absence of class or decorum. Quite right to be stripped of the warrant.

Since June Kenton is the former owner, is the Queen right to punish the current Rigby and Peller?  It's probably knocked a bit of market value off the 8million enterprise.
