Queen Elizabeth II's luxury lingerie maker Rigby & Peller has lost its royal warrant, an official said Thursday, after its former owner published a book revealing details on of royal bra fittings.

Rigby & Peller told HuffPost UK: "The Royal Household Warrants Committee has made a decision to cancel the Royal Warrant granted to Rigby & Peller and Mrs June Kenton".

Since the incident, Ms Kenton explained that it was never her intention to upset anyone.

"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. I have never, ever spoken about what I do there with her, or the Queen Mother or Princess Margaret", she said.

Rigby & Peller now trades from nine stores across the United Kingdom, as well as online. Per the Royal Warrant Holders Association's Web site, companies who have supplied the royal family with goods or services for at least five out of seven years can apply for a warrant. She penned intimate details about measuring the half-dressed monarch in front of her corgis.

According to Kenton, Princess Diana would reportedly take home "posters showing models in lingerie and swimwear to give to princes William and Harry to display in their Eton studies", The Daily Telegraph reports. Kenton bought the lingerie shop in 1982 with her husband; she sold it in 2011 but remains on the board. "She's wonderful. I mean, don't you think she's awesome?"

Kenton herself, however, believes that it is because of her book, but does not understand why the Palace mistook her intentions.

'This is hard for me to say, but I don't want her to go with this, ' she said.

The 82-year-old said losing the warrant "absolutely killed" her and that she regretted "not being wise enough" to omit mention of the royals in her autobiography.

"However, the company will continue to provide an exemplary and discreet service to its clients". She also references Diana, Princess of Wales.

Russell Tanguay, director of warrants at the Royal Warrant Holders Association, confirmed to the Express that Rigby & Peller, whose flagship store is near Harrods in Knightsbridge, had lost its warrant "in the middle of last year".

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.
