KATE MIDDLETON’S COUSIN STRIPS FOR PLAYBOY
The Duchess of Cambridge is not likely to be amused but her cousin, a stripper and dancer in Sunderland nightclubs, is cashing in on their relationship by posing for Playboy.
Katrina Darling, 22, appears on the front cover of the September issue with eight pages of pictures inside. In one spread, she strikes a sultry pose as she lies topless on a sheepskin rug.
The magazine calls her “a royal beauty” and “Britain’s new burlesque queen.”
The provocative performer has never met her cousin, who one day will be Queen, and has never made any attempt to contact the Middletons.
But that didn’t stop her choreographing a burlesque routine to mark the Jubilee, titled God Save the Queen, which she performed wearing a figure hugging red corset teamed with a union jack skirt and small crown perched on her head. But as the anthem got going she stripped off completely, revealing bright red nipple tassels and a thong.
The dancer has now decided to take her act to New York to cash in on her newfound fame and the royal connection.
