Queen sacks bra-fitter of 57 years after tell-all book

Sarah Carty

The royal family may be used to meeting and greeting the public at official events but they’re notoriously coy about their private lives.

That’s thought to be the reason why the Queen has sacked her bra-fitter of 57-years after the owner wrote a tell-all book.

The shop has now reportedly lost its royal warrant after Julie released her book called Storm in a D-cup in March last year, where she details fittings she had with the royal family at Buckingham Palace.

One such fitting was with the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret in a room in the Palace.

Princess Margaret was apparently telling the Queen Mother exactly which hat she should choose, before the Queen Mother turned to Julie and told her a secret.

“Shall I tell you what I do?”, Julie claims in the book the Queen Mother asked her.

“I pretend to listen to Margaret and then, once she has gone, I order what I want.”

Julie also details her meetings with Princess Diana, who would apparently also look for swimsuits from an Israeli designer and took home posters of swimwear models for Prince William and Prince Harry.

"I never met Diana's boys, but I used to give her lingerie and swimwear posters for them to put up in their studies at Eton," Julie wrote.

However, when it came to the Queen’s fittings, Julie wrote: “We never, ever have discussions of what we see in the fitting room.”

Julie claims she sent a copy of her book – which she calls an autobiography – to Buckingham Palace right after it was published.

There are only about 800 royal warrants out there, with the Palace meticulously choosing suppliers that the royal family can trust.

Buckingham Palace refuses to comment on any royal warrents.
