So Queen Elizabeth has sacked her lingerie stylist and here's why

Queen Princess Diana Rigby & Peller

Queen Princess Diana Rigby & Peller

The upmarket underwear brand, which now operates stores in the United States and the Middle East, lost the coveted honour previous year, shortly after its founder June Kenton published her autobiography, Storm in a D Cup, in March.

Rigby & Peller received the Royal Warrant in 1960.

Buckingham Palace said it did not "comment on individual companies". The luxury lingerie firm was founded in 1939 by Gita Peller and Bertha Rigby, before being sold to Kenton and her husband.

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 was told six months ago that the Palace "didn't like the book", and admitted being "very sad Buckingham Palace took exception to the story - it's a kind and gentle story about what went on in my life".

Kenton regularly visited Buckingham Palace and served members of the royal family, including the Queen, the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret, and her autobiography provided some detail about her working relationship with them.

"I can confirm the warrant for Rigby & Peller is cancelled but I can't go into the details why", a spokesman for the Royal Warrant Holders Association told AFP.

"She's wonderful. I mean, don't you think she's fantastic?" The book doesn't contain anything naughty.

Rodney Hood ejected, slaps phone out of fan's hand
Rodney Hood doesn't want you to film him when he's just been ejected from an National Basketball Association game. It was definitely a subpar performance from Hood, who is averaging 16.98 points per game so far this season.

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

Kenton has told reporters she never discusses what happens in a fitting room, though the book does recount her first meeting with the monarch and her trepidation about being ushered into the royal bedroom.

Mrs Kenton, who started working for the Queen in the early 1980s, has been in the lingerie industry for more than 60 years.

Kenton, 82, also claimed that the Queen Mum once confided in her that she would only "pretend to listen" to her daughter, Princess Margaret, whenever Margaret would offer her mother style advice about hats. "I just think the world of them".

The only other notable company to be stripped of its royal warrant was Harrods in 2000.

The royal warrant is granted to a named individual and gives them permission and responsibility for the display of the relevant Royal Arms in connection with the business.

The reason given by a Palace spokesman was a "significant decline in the trading relationship" between the Duke and the store.
