The luxury lingerie brand, Rigby & Peller, has lost its royal warrant, of 57 years after the companies former owner, released a tell-all book. Former owner, June Kenton, released a tell-all book describing palace fittings, which led to the company losing its endorsement.
June Kenton has now confirmed that Rigby & Peller lost the Queen's royal warrant because the palace didn't like her book.

Many sympathized with Kenton, believing the Palace’s decision to remove the companies endorsemnt and the backlash she’s received to be unfair.

@june_kenton Looking forward to reading your book – so sorry for the negative publicity it's attracted, but from what I've read, you're a remarkable lady that's been treated a little unfairly.

Oh dear – June Kenton’s book reveals nothing. This is a harsh decision – I suspect merely ‘pour encourager les autres’ not to take further liberties. https://t.co/n8snm2kiVo

I’m sure the Queen can find another with no problem.
