Whoa! Kate Middleton’s Cousin Is A Stripper Named Katrina Darling
Consider this a royal flush.
Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, may have a squeaky clean image. But, her family has been harboring a dirty little secret by the name of Katrina Darling.
The 21-year-old Miss Darling (that’s her real name, by the way) is the second cousin, once removed, of Kate and Pippa Middleton. The burlesque dancer caused quite the scandal when her existence and lineage was discovered just months before Kate married Prince William in front of the world. “They referred to me as, ‘The royal family’s closest brush with soft porn since Koo Stark,’ which is quite an exclamation, really,” says Darling. “I’ve been called worse things in different languages since then.”
Darling, who works for Barclays in London, recently invaded the United States and performed her stripper show, “God Save The Queen,” at NYC nightclub W.I.P. “London sticks more to the traditional burlesque side of things, whereas New York really pushes the envelope,” Darling said of her act. “I take my clothes off, but I don’t give away anything that should be kept for someone else.”
