The upmarket underwear company that supplied lingerie to the Queen had its warrant scrapped after a tell-all book gave details of royal fittings.

He explained that firms have a certain amount of time before they have to remove the royal coat of arms, earned when a company has supplied the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, or Prince Charles for five out of the past seven years, from their promotional material and shop signs.

She even stayed on the firm's board to fit the Queen's bras after Belgian company Van de Velde took on the company, which was awarded the royal warrant under its previous owners in 1960.

"I have never, ever spoken about what I do there with her, or the Queen Mother, or Princess Margaret", Kenton said in a statement, per the BBC.

June Kenton, director of the London-based firm, published Storm in a D Cup in March past year.

Buckingham Palace declined to comment. 29 years later she sold her stake for £8million, the Daily Mail reported.

Russel Tanguay, the director of royal warrants at the Royal Warrants Holders Association, confirmed to the Express that Rigby & Peller lost its royal warrant - i.e., its right to advertise itself as a royal supplier - in mid-2017.

She went on: "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". One of the most intimate reveals in the memoir is June's description of fitting the half-dressed Queen while the monarch was surrounded by her corgis.

There are about 800 royal warrant holders, including individuals, small businesses and global companies.

"It is very sad for me that they didn't like it and I'm finding that very hard to accept".

Mrs Kenton, 82, described the book as a "kind and gentle" story about her life and said there was nothing to "be upset about".

"Shall I tell you what I do?" she was quoted as saying.

The author and bra-fitter wrote: "I never met William or Harry - though (Princess Diana) was always talking about them". 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.
