Oh Yeah! A little pizzazz in the royal family is something to look forward too! As an American I admit I don’t know much about the dos and don’ts of royalty – but having a stripper in the family definitely makes it more interesting! Enter Katrina Darling, Kate Middleton’s burlesque cousin! Maybe Kate is adding a little sex appeal to the otherwise stuffy Waleses or Windsors or Mountbattens or whatever their last name is! Check out her photos and video below.
With Kate Middleton, a commoner, about to join Britain’s royal family it’s only natural that there is a media frenzy to dig up whatever dirt anyone can dig up on her and her family. Now it has gotten to finding a cousin who is a burlesque dancer. Well, she’s actually a second cousin once removed – but who cares – it makes for good tabloid. Not only that, but it will undoubtedly raise her public profile. So who’s complaining? Right?
The fact that Katrina Darling (that’s her real name) and Kate Middleton had no idea they were related seems irrelevant at this point. They are. It seems her grandmother was Kate Middleton’s great-grandfather’s sister. Confused about the relation? Don’t worry. It doesn’t matter. They are related and she’s a stripper. More accurately, the 20-year-old Katrina Darling is a Burlesque dancer ala Dita Von Teese. She’s even been featured in a music video for a British rock band.
Oh what fun this will be!
Katrina Darling is the daughter of Eric and Maureen Darling and still lives with her parents. She started burlesque dancing when she was 18-years-old and has made something of a name for herself in Britain.
Interestingly, her dances are patriotic, including a dance to ‘God Save the Queen’ in which she ends up nude except for a Union Jack thong and pasties. How can the royal family complain about THAT!
That’s not her only number, of course. She has a nice piece that she does in which she pops balloons as she dances. You can see that in the video below.
You just have to love the patriotic theme and the fact that she’s related, however distantly, to the future Queen of England! God Save the Queen!
