A royal striptease?

Kate Middleton's cousin is a stripper.



The girl of the moment is Katrina Darling, and she found out from the British media last year that she is the second cousin, once removed, to the Duchess of Cambridge. (Her grandmother and Kate's great-grandmother were sisters).



Move over, Pippa?



The 21-year-old burlesque dancer is a banker by day and strip-tease sensation by night.



She is bringing her show, God Save the Queen, to New York City in March.



The saucy Brit has never met her famous cousins, or the royal family, but said she would not turn down an invitation to hang out with them, should they ask. She would also be more than willing to send them a few tickets to see her show.



According to a New York Post article, a giggling spokesperson for the royal family had no comment about the new-found connection.



Here are a couple more pin-up photos of the vintage-esque bottle blonde.





What do you think of Katrina Darling?

Well, I can't say that i see a resemblance with her famous cousin. I hope she does not quit her day... ahem... night job. She and I stand zero chance of ever getting invited to have tea with the Queen of England! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Her look is timeless. I could see these photos fitting in with any decade.

A banker by day and stripper by night - it sorta makes sense!!

Tights Lover said...

I may have to make the short trek down I-95 in March...hahaha.

Kristin said...

Are.You.Kidding. THIS IS AWESOME. I love Kate Middleton even more now.
I always thought I would make a good stripper -- but only because I know how to booty shake. I definitely don't have the chest for it. Nobody would pay me.

honestly, i just love that she's related to Kate; that she is a banker by day (if only she were burlesquing her way thru law school); and that the name of her show is God Save the Queen. that's just amazing.

briannelee said...

It's kind-of weird that they did not know they were related... they aren't that far removed.

Alexandria said...

Where on god's green earth do you even find this stuff? Furrealz. This is such a good nugget of info. I can't wait to share it at a party haha!

Bunny Moreno said...

I think she looks soo much better than Pippa hahah I have no clue why the Brits find these Middleton girls attractive at all. Bone skinny, nothing to grab, and just plain janes. I do think this is a neat connection. I suppose we are all connected somehow-someway. xox

Mabel said...

I love her style!!! (duh) I hope she gets together with Harry!

lil miss Sauniya' said...

well i guess you could be related.. even brothers and sisters and still have your own mind and make your own choices.. dont think it would be a good idea for the duchess to meet her now. especially if they still havent met yet.. hmm..

Swarnali said...

From where do you get these amazing info Jenny? The royal connection is really surprising. She is gorgeous.

Meri said...

lucky her- I bet it will do wonders for her to get gigs and be famous! She's super hot!

David Macaulay said...

Nice one Jen - for a change I did know about this, although hadn't seen her pic. That's awful re your newspaper BTW; sadly being a staffer on a paper really sucks these days

Josie said...

I had NO idea!

Oh that is just too funny! Good thing the beautiful Kate doesn't give any airs - she's just too sweet to have this "embarrass" her. I love it! It's so perfectly European.

Well, I think most of the snapshots of her actually look nice, and she is doing her job well?? So why not meet her cousin, and maybe give some tips on strip-teasing? haha. :)
Much love, Gabriele.xx
