The company which supplied lingerie to the Queen has lost its royal warrant after the firm's director wrote a book revealing details of her work with the royal family.
Rigby & Peller had held the royal warrant since 1960, but confirmed it was deeply saddened by the Royal Household Warrants Committee's decision to cancel it.
June Kenton, director of the London-based firm, published 'Storm In A D Cup' in March last year. It is not clear if the two events are linked.
Mrs 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.
