While Kate Middleton has skyrocketed to fame with her classy get-ups and her royal wedding to Prince William, another member of her family, Katrina Darling, has recently gained publicity as well. Darling, a distant cousin of British royal Kate Middleton, is bringing her racy burlesque dancing act to New York this March.

The New York Post reports that the 21-year-old Darling's first appearance in the United States will be at the SoHo nightclub W.I.P on Mar. 13. Darling plans to perform her racy God Save the Queen routine wearing saucy burlesque outfits.

New York is a lot more out there than the UK scene, she told the New York Post. London sticks more to the traditional burlesque side of things, whereas New York really pushes the envelope.

Though Darling is a skilled dancer and model, she works a day job in London as a Barclays banker in private-wealth management.  She has been performing since she was 18 years old and is currently designing her own lingerie line.

Darling is a second cousin, once removed, to the Duchess of Cambridge and only recently learned that she's related to Middleton. Darling told the New York Post that she has received no complaints from the Royal Family for her performances and would welcome members of the family to come watch her perform. 

Take a look at pictures of Kate Middleton's sexy second cousin in racy burlesque outfits.
