Queen Elizabeth Reportedly Fired Her Bra-Fitter for Revealing Royal Secrets

Queen Elizabeth Reportedly Fired Her Bra-Fitter for Revealing Royal Secrets

Rigby & Peller has serviced the royal family for the past 57 years.

She also discussed details regarding the Queen Mother's encounters with Princess Margaret and their disagreements on hats, quoting the Queen Mother as saying "I pretend to listen to Margaret and then, once she has gone, I order what I want".

The former owner of a luxury British bra maker that supplied lingerie to Queen Elizabeth says the company lost its royal warrant after she wrote a book disclosing details of fittings at Buckingham Palace.

But it emerged yesterday that Mrs Kenton's long working relationship with the 91-year-old monarch ended shortly after she published her autobiography, entitled Storm in a D Cup, in March last year.

If a company loses its royal warrant, any promotional material or shop signs bearing the royal coat of arms must be removed within a given time frame agreed between the Royal Warrant Holders Association and the Retailer.

ISRO Launches 100th Satellite, Says "New Year's Gift" India makes space history
ISRO's 100th satellite is set for launch from Satish Dhawan Space Centre, along with 30 others in a single mission. Cartosat-2 series satellite is the primary satellite carried by PSLV-C40.

Among other reveals, Kenton reportedly wrote about outfitting a half-naked Queen Elizabeth in front of the monarch's beloved Corgis, as well as bringing Princess Diana pictures of scantily clad lingerie models for William and Harry to hang in their dormitories at Eton, the Daily Express reports. "In respect of Royal Warrants, we never comment on individual companies", a palace statement reads.

HER brand has been dubbed the "Queen's bra-fitter" for years.

A spokesperson for Ms Kenton told i she "did not think that writing her memoirs would cause such a problem as it is only her life story which she wanted to get down on paper".

Mrs Kenton said there was "nothing" in the book to "be upset about", adding that it was an "unbelievable" decision.

Buckingham Palace said it not "comment on individual companies". "She's wonderful. I mean, don't you think she's incredible?"

National Football League investigating Raiders for 'Rooney Rule' violation, report says
Gruden coached the Raiders from 1998 to 2001 before being traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and capturing Super Bowl XXXVII. Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said Tuesday that he interviewed two minority candidates prior to Gruden's hiring.

"I only ever said I went there, not what happened".

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

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.

Kenton, from Bushey in Hertfordshire, bought Rigby & Peller with her husband in 1982 for £20,000, before selling a majority stake in 2011 for £8m, although she remains on the board.
