Lagerfeld Joins In On The Jubilee


Karl Lagerfeld is set to reprise his role as a royal commentator. Last year, the designer was part of France 2 television’s live broadcast of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s royal wedding. “An event like that is fun to do because I can make jokes, and jokes of the lowest kind are not against my mentality,” he told the Telegraph of the experience. And his audience liked what they heard—reportedly the French station has brought him on once more for Queen Elizabeth II’s 60th anniversary celebrations. Lagerfeld will be joined by newsreader Marie Drucker and French journalist Stéphane Bern for the live commentary, taking place during the main Diamond Jubilee weekend on June 3.
