The second cousin of Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge married to the heir to the British throne, has bared all for the pages of Playboy Magazine.
Katrina Darling, who makes her living in Britain as a burlesque dancer, was not only featured on the cover of the September 2012 issue of the popular men’s magazine, she was also highlighted inside in an eight-page pictorial spread that shows off her physical attributes.
The 22-year old model insists that she only recently discovered her familial connection to Kate Middleton, thanks to a phone call from members of the news media asking for comments about her famous cousin’s wedding.
Darling has not indicated that she has been in touch with her more famous relative, saying that she considered the news of the family connection to be “ridiculous” and something unexpected that happens once in a lifetime. Darling has enjoyed a thriving dancing career performing her own show, titled “God Save the Queen”, which she has performed throughout Great Britain as well as Europe, in addition to scheduling special American appearances in New York City as well as Miami. She said that the art of burlesque enables her to express herself creatively.
