Katrina Darling, a cousin to the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, performed a striptease at an AIDS charity event that was attended by a hoard of celebrities.
Darling was a guest at the Life Ball in Austria, and the 23 year-old burlesque performer shed her clothes in front of Elton John, his husband David Furnish, and the former US President Bill Clinton.
She made sure to cover up the most intimate parts of her body, but she did leave very little to the imagination.
Darling only found out that she was related to Middleton in 2011, but has since made sure that she has taken advantage of her relations. Darling’s grandmother is the sister to Thomas Harrison, the duchess’ great grandfather.
After she learned of her royal connection, Darling decided to quit her job at Barclay’s bank in the United Kingdom and immediately moved to New York.
Since then Darling has appeared on the front cover of Playboy magazine, who described her as “Britain’s new burlesque Queen” and a “royal beauty.”
She has also danced provocatively to Sex Pistol’s anti-establishment song, “God Save The Queen,” during the monarch’s diamond jubilee.
It is unknown whether or not Darling is close to Middleton, but she isn’t afraid to talk about her cousin, even providing a comment on the topless photos of Kate that appeared online in 2012. Darling stated, “[Kate] was on private land and comfortable being in her own skin. I don’t think she should be scrutinized for being comfortable in her own skin.”
Middleton is currently pregnant with her first child, and the offspring of her and Prince William is set to be born on July 13. If the royal baby does appear on its expected date, it would arrive right in the middle of Queen Elizabeth’s Coronation Festival, which is set to begin on July 11 and ends on July 14.
