Turns out there’s another saucepot in the Middleton family. This is Katrina Darling - Kate Middleton's cousin, and Pippa’s new raunch-rival.
Burlesque performer Katrina was paid a six figure sum to appear on the front cover of the front cover of Playboy magazine and she’s only gone and done an eight-page spread in the September issue.
Apparently Kate has never met Katrina – that’s the thing about posh families, they’re MASSIVE – but they’re related because Katrina’s grandmother is sister to K-Mid’s great granddad Thomas Harrison.
That makes them second cousins, once removed. We never really understood what that meant but what we do know is that we’re seeing someone related to the Royals in a photo shoot that would make Jordan blush. Ok maybe not Jordan. Imogen at least.
Obviously Playboy wanted to highlight the Royal connection so the 22-year-old is advertised on the cover as a 'royal beauty' and 'Britain's new burlesque queen'. The spread includes your standard sexy pictures, plus one so 80s in nature it’s almost not sexy at all - topless on a sheepskin rug (see above).
Fun fact: she used to be a banker – in ‘private wealth management’. Bet she’s doing alright with her private wealth management now, eh.
