kate middleton cousinThat Middleton family is just oozing with style. Duchess Katherine is the epitome of classy chic, sister Pippa always looks trendy and appropriate, and now, their distant cousin Katrina Darling has emerged on the scene with her own unique and risque aesthetic. Which really is to say, Katrina's a burlesque dancer who's on the cover of one of the most famous porn magazines ever, wearing some sexy black lingerie. I don't know about you, but I kind of love the fact that Kate Middleton's cousin is on the cover of Playboy.

All you have to do is take one look at their hair to know they're related. The hair on their head! God. You're gross.

Katrina and Kate are technically second cousins once removed (Kate's great grandfather is the brother of Katrina's grandmother), but still, you can see some resemblance. From their shiny, luxurious locks to their wide-set eyes and big smile, Kate and Katrina have many an enviable feature. It's no wonder Katrina's gaining some fame. 

After it was revealed before the royal wedding that the soon-to-be Duchess was related to a burlesque dancer, there was quite the hubbub. Fancy British people dropped their tea cups when they heard the blasphemous news, but we here in Amerika knew just what to do -- let the dust settle, wait a year, then give Katrina an enormous eight-page spread in Playboy.

Apparently, there isn't any frontal nudity in the photoshoot save for one topless shot, so it seems like Katrina's keeping it tasteful. Who knows if the palace requested she do so or not, but there is one thing we can be certain of -- those Middleton girls have style and panache. Kate's nailed conservative-chic, and Katrina's got bawdy elegance down to a T.

Oh, how wonderfully stylish their Christmases must be.

What do you think of Kate's cousin in Playboy?
