"The Royal Household Warrants Committee has chose to cancel the royal warrant granted to Rigby & Peller and Mrs June Kenton", the brand said. Kenton bought the lingerie shop in 1982 with her husband; she sold it in 2011 but remains on the board.

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.

It is a mark of recognition for those who supply specific goods or services to the Royal household. "She's wonderful. I mean, don't you think she's fantastic?"

But Rigby & Peller confirmed the loss of the Royal warrant. "I am very sad Buckingham Palace took exception to the story - it's a kind and gentle story about what went on in my life".

The warrants come up for review every five years and their renewal generally depends on how much the shop is being used by the Royal Family.

In addition, she mentioned that rumors that Princess Diana accepted posters of models in lingerie for her sons Prince William and Prince Harry.

The 82-year-old former bra fitter did not submit a copy of her book to the palace before publishing because she didn't think it was necessary.

Kenton, who was informed of the decision six months ago, is upset, but she's not alone.

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

'No-one from Buckingham Palace said a word to us at the time, no-one expressed any unhappiness.

She began providing bespoke undergarments to the Queen in 1960, but the royal warrant didn't automatically pass to the Kentons on buying Rigby & Peller; June had to earn it. She also claimed that there was "no dilly-dallying" in their relationship and that the Queen was "gorgeous".

"However, the company will continue to provide an exemplary and discreet service to its clients", it said.

Other companies that have lost their royal warrant includes Carr's Table Water biscuits, simply because they are in lower demand at the palace, and Harrods, whose owner Mohamed al Fayed allegedly angered Prince Philip with comments about the auto crash in 1997 that killed Princess Diana and Dodi al Fayed.
