The Queen has fired her royal lingerie designer over this book

Kenton, who transformed Rigby & Peller into a global retailer after acquiring it for £20,000 ($27,000) in 1982, also explained how Princess Diana had accepted posters of models in lingerie for her sons William and Harry for them to bring to Eton college.

Queen Elizabeth's bra fitter has lost its royal warrant after its director wrote a memoir that mentioned her encounters with the royal family.

The official "corsetiere" to the Queen published her autobiography, Storm in a D-Cup, in March previous year, revealing details from the royal bra fittings and her experiences with family members from Princess Diana to the Queen. We thought it was a lovely, colourful life story. "She is not disloyal".

Her daughter, Jill Kenton, told the Mail: 'I'm so sad for my mum, as she actually wrote the book for her children and grandchildren. "I pretend to listen to Margaret and then, once she has gone, I order what I want".

'I've been honourable throughout my life - it's unbelievable they don't like the book, there's nothing in it that they could remotely be upset about. "To have the royal warrant is the most gorgeous thing".

The luxury lingerie firm was founded in 1939 by Gita Peller and Bertha Rigby, before being sold to Kenton and her husband.

The book reportedly includes details of conversations Keaton had with the Queen Mother, as well as anecdotes about Princess Diana.

'When she was told that she had lost the warrant it was a huge shock, as my mother has been nothing but loyal throughout her whole career. I have never, ever spoken about what I do there with her, or the Queen Mother or Princess Margaret'.

Indian Embassy in Kabul attacked with rocket
Ministry of External Affairs spokesman Raveesh Kumar said there was no fire as a result of the rocket hit. She said damage was caused to ITBP barracks and all the mission staff were safe.

Buckingham Palace said: "In respect of royal warrants, we never comment". Rigby & Peller had the Royal warrant as corsetiere to the Queen.

Other high profile clients included Margaret Thatcher and Lady Gaga.

The Queen unsurprisingly was not impressed by the book, with Buckingham Palace informing Mrs Kenton that they "didn't like the book", removing the company's royal warrant.

They must have done so for five of the last seven years, and have a continuing trading arrangement. And in 1999, the royal warrant for tobacco company Benson & Hedges was revoked.

'There was no point in me attempting to speak to the palace, as they had clearly made up their mind.

The Royal Warrant Holders Association said companies were granted a window in which to remove the royal coat of arms.

For more than 50 years Rigby & Peller has occupied one of the most respected positions in the world of lingerie: that of supplying underwear to the Queen.
