As is normal with the everyday tribulations of employees, June Kenton decided to share her day-to-day working experiences with the world. Kenton happened to share her experiences in her new book, Storm in a D-Cup. She also happened to be the former employee of Britain’s royal family (i.e. Queen Elizabeth). Like many employee-boss relationships end, Kenton found herself unemployed when word got out.
Word to the wise, if you happen to be working for renowned, powerful, and filthy rich individuals, it may be best to avoid exploiting them in a tell-all book. Kenton learned this lesson the hard way.
The self-proclaimed “leading boobologist” of the U.K. and owner of Rigby & Peller lingerie has serviced members of the British royal family for years—fifty-seven to be exact.
Though one would assume that a boss-employee relationship spanning decades would be a pretty tight bond, Kenton’s contract was terminated shortly after the book was published in March 2016.

In her autobiography tracing her successful career, Kenton disclosed some behind-the-scenes bra fittings with royal figures, including Queen Elizabeth and Princess Diana. One such experience reportedly detailed fitting the Queen in front of her corgis. While that may not be particularly revealing or shocking, the lack of privacy and respect was enough to earn Kenton the boot.
Kenton told The Telegraph that it wasn’t her intention to upset anyone and expressed “shock” at the disapproval she has received from the royal family.
“It is very sad for me that they didn’t like it and I’m finding that very difficult to accept. It’s horrible and a real shock,” Kenton said.

“I never ever thought when I was writing the book that it would upset anyone. I’ve had the royal warrant for so long I never imagined that this would happen.”
Part of Kenton’s shock is the lack of “naughty” accounts in her book, she said. “I have never discussed anything of a personal nature with any of my clients, and I never would. The book doesn’t contain anything naughty,” Kenton told The Telegraph. “But it’s a fact I have done work for the Queen, there would be a gaping hole in my autobiography if I didn’t mention it.
“I can’t even begin to explain, I didn’t do it with the intention of upsetting anyone. I’m proud of my life and what I’ve achieved and I simply wanted to share that,” Kenton added.
To make the wound deeper, Storm in a D Cup received a single review on Amazon that was pretty bad to say the least. The one-star review read:
While Kenton may have exposed her majesty in an unwanted light, it may be Queen Elizabeth who has the last laugh in the end.
But for real, poor Kenton. | via GIPHY
