The banker-turned-burlesque dancer cousin of Kate Middleton strips down to barely there underwear in the latest issue of Loaded magazine.

Kate Middleton's burlesque dancer cousin Katrina Darling has posed naked in a sexy new photo shoot for Loaded magazine.

The 22-year-old, who reportedly received a six-figure sum for posing in Playboy, is the subject of a royal-inspired shoot in the latest issue of the men's mag.

In one of the images, she sips tea wearing only a pair of red knickers and a crown on her head. She completes the look with peroxide blonde hair and a sultry pose.

Darling, a former banker who is Kate's second cousin, does burlesque full-time and often strips naked as part of her routine. It is reported that her burlesque career and risque shoots have caused the Duchess considerable embarrassment.

In the interview which accompanies the Loaded shoot, Darling revealed that she loves being naked because she loves her body.

"I don't feel undressed when I'm not wearing clothes. I feel very comfortable," she told the publication.

Addressing her cousin's recent topless scandal, Darling admitted that she felt for Middleton, who was left red-faced after a French magazine published her private holiday photographs.

"She was on private land and comfortable being in her own skin," Darling said. "I don't think she should be scrutinised for being comfortable in her own skin."

The outspoken performer also touched on Prince Harry's Las Vegas antics and insisted that she did not find the young royal attractive and wouldn't want to see his "tackle".
