Katrina Darling, 22, reportedly only found out she was related to Kate Middleton when a reporter called her for comment on the royal wedding. She's never even tried to meet the Middletons.

Still, the burlesque dancer seems to be benefitting from royal fever since she's on the September 2012 cover of Playboy — with the headline "Royal Beauty" — and she has an eight page spread inside. According to the Daily Mail, Katrina made six figures for the issue.

She and the Duchess of Cambridge are said to be second cousins, once removed; Katrina's grandmother was sister to Kate's (and Pippa's) great-grandfather Thomas Harrison.

Gotta admit, the family has good genes!
