Abstract: We prove that if $H$ is a semisimple Hopf algebra, then the action of the Drinfeld double $D(H)$ on $H$ and the action of the character algebra on $H$ form a commuting pair. This result and a result of G. I. Kats imply that the dimension of every simple $D(H)$-submodule of $H$ is a divisor of $\text {dim } (H)$.
