Kate Middleton was in pole position as a royal spectator at the Olympics, now her stripper cousin has caught Playboy's eye.

Katrina Darling, a part-time stripper and burlesque dancer - who just happens to be Kate Middleton's second cousin - has just scored a six-figure sum to pose nude for Playboy magazine.

She is the magazine's September covergirl and appears in an eight-page spread inside.

While she has never met her famous cousin, 22-year-old Darling has made the most of her royal connections. According to the Daily Mail, she performed a special burlesque routine to mark the Queen's Jubilee celebrations earlier this year, wearing red nipple tassels, a Union Jack skirt and a small crown.

Darling previously combined her extra-curricular activities with her role in the private wealth management division of Barclays Bank.

There has been no comment from Clarence House about her relationship to Middleton, who used to favour dancing in nightclubs before her marriage to Prince William in 2011, but we can only imagine that the Queen herself would not be amused.
