Karl Lagerfeld has been full of profundities lately, declaring himself a cocktail and dishing on Coco Chanel's two big mistakes. He's now weighed in on the royal engagement, telling WWD, "For the royals, apparently the royal blood is not in demand any longer," adding, "Better for the generation to come."
Of Kate Middleton, Kaiser Karl remarked, "She is very different from Princess Diana, and seems very well balanced and a happy person. She is chic in a way the position needs." He added that she looks like Denmark's Princess Mary -- "like a younger sister."
