Rigby & Peller Loses Royal Warrant After 57 Years As The Queen's Official Lingerie Supplier

HRH will no longer be meeting with the 'UK’s leading boobologist'.

High-end lingerie brand Rigby & Peller has lost its licence with the Queen as the lingerie supplier to the royal family.

The working relationship relationship between June Kenton, the woman said to be the “driving force” behind the brand, and the Queen reportedly came to an end in 2016, not long after after Kenton, 82, wrote a tell-all book ‘Storm In A D Cup’. 

Rigby & Peller has now had to remove the royal coat of arms from its store front and website, following a “grace period” granted to them for long-service to the Queen.

Kenton has been known to describe herself as the “UK’s leading boobologist”.

Her book goes into detail about private fittings with the Queen, the Queen Mother, Princess Margaret and Lady Diana

Rigby & Peller told HuffPost UK: “The Royal Household Warrants Committee has decided to cancel the Royal Warrant granted to Rigby & Peller and Mrs June Kenton.

“Rigby & Peller is deeply saddened by this decision and is not able to elaborate further on the cancellation out of respect for her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Warrant Holders Association.

“However, the company will continue to provide an exemplary and discreet service to its clients.”

 

Russell Tanguay, director of warrants at the Royal Warrant Holders Association (RWHA) who confirmed that Rigby & Peller lost its licence in the middle 2016, said that the RWHA does not “go into detail” about individual companies.

He did, however, tell the Daily Express that companies can continue to keep the royal coat of arms on branding for only a short period of time after the relationship with the royal charter is terminated.
