PIPPA Middleton is upset!
The sister of Kate Middleton is said to be “devastated” by Karl Lagerfeld‘s cruel taunts about her looks.
The Chanel designer caused controversy last week when he said the party planner should “hide her face” but friends of the brunette beauty have advised her to retain a dignified silence.
“Pippa’s devastated by Karl’s cruel comments — she’s always been confident about her looks,” a source said. “But she doesn’t want to retaliate and start a war of words.
“Her friends have tried to make her laugh about it as Karl is hardly a supermodel himself.”
Meanwhile, it’s been claimed Kate is helping Pippa crack America.
Pippa infuriated royal officials when she was pictured next to a friend waving a gun as they drove through Paris in April but she and her sister — who were pictured at the Wimbledon tennis final together earlier this month — are now said to be closer than ever and Kate wants to do whatever she can to help her sibling boost her image.
“Kate clearly wanted to show that Pippa is truly back in the royal fold,” a source said.
“The pair have been spending more time together and Kate’s even been giving her some tips for her promo tour around the USA when she launches her party planning book there in October.”
It was previously claimed that senior royals felt Pippa wouldn’t be able to promote her book, Celebrate, in case it embarrassed her sister.
“She would normally be expected to appear on every chat show under the sun,” a source said.
“I know she won’t do anything that she hasn’t run by the duchess’ advisers, but it is still a very tricky situation.”
“She was offered a whole host of ghost writers but said no to them all and is very proud that it is all her own work.
“I just don’t think she appreciated how much work it would take and may need some help from her editors.”
