Katrina Darling Playboy Photos: Kate Middleton’s Cousin Poses For Racy Mag’s September 2012 Cover (PHOTOS)
Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on August 16, 2012
No, the 22-year-old ex-banker isn’t trying to finagle a palace to reside in or an all-expense paid education to a plum college. She’s wearing crown-shaped pasties while working as a burlesque dancer in New York City — and she just dropped… wait for it… a Playboy photo shoot.
Darling’s Playboy pictorial, as we first told you back in June, comes with the magazine’s September 2012 issue. Not only does she get a huge racy spread, but homegirl has landed the entire COVER. (Nice hustle, Katrina’s publicist.)
There are seemingly no nudes, but there are eight pages of pics inside the issue, including a topless photo. On the cover, the brunette poses, doe-eyed, in some strappy black lingerie — looking a wee bit Photoshopped.
And lest you have mental images of Katrina growing up alongside her famous cousin, it wasn’t quite like that: Darling, who was already working as a burlesque dancer with a routine ironically titled “God Save The Queen,” first learned of her royal connection just before the April 2011 royal wedding via a UK journalist. “It was the most ridiculous thing I ever heard,” she tells Playboy. “It’s not every day something like that happens.”
Darling’s issue will hit newsstands August 17, where the pics will be found onPlayboy‘s (uh, NSFW) website.
