Back in July, we asked "Will Kate Middleton's Sexy Cousin Undress for Playboy?" We really hope you weren't waiting on an answer, but if you were, you can now continue with the rest of your summer: the answer is "yes."

The hot Katrina Darling — who is Kate and Pippa's second cousin, once removed — graces the cover of the September 2012 issue of Playboy. The burlesque dancer and model posed for an 8-page nude pictorial inside. Also featured in the mag is an interview with Richard Dawkins, 20 Questions with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and "articles." The new issue hits newsstands Friday, August 17.

If you'd like to take a look at the "Royal Beauty" before then, we collected a couple pics here for your "viewing" pleasure. Okay, we're done with all the airquotes over terms that mask the fact you might pound your pudd to these photos. Enjoy yourself.
