While carrying out her official "corsetiere" duties, she visited Buckingham Palace regularly, serving members of the royal family, including the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret.

The Monarch decides who is able to grant a royal warrant.

A royal warrant is a mark of recognition for those who supply specific goods or services to the Royal Household.

Mrs Kenton enjoyed a rags to riches story, starting off on a clothes still in Brixton Market.

June was reportedly stripped of her title after penning a tell-all book about palace lingerie. "I can't fight with Buckingham Palace and I wouldn't want to", she said.

Rigby & Peller began providing bespoke undergarments to the Queen from 1960, and subsequently provided products to Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, Princess Margaret and Countess of Snowdon among other royals.

Rigby & Peller confirmed the loss of the royal warrant.

The reason given by a Palace spokesman was a "significant decline in the trading relationship" between the Duke and the store.

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 vehicle crash in 1997 that killed Princess Diana and Dodi al Fayed.

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