It’s no secret we’ve got a major crush on burlesque performer Dita Von Teese. What’s not to love? She’s got a bitchin’ wardrobe (and an assistant who takes care of her clothes!), an incredible job, and more confidence than we’ve seen in, well … anyone!

When the Royal asked Ms. Dita what she did, she replied that she was a “dancer.” When Prince Charles unwittingly asked the dancer to do a number at Prince Harry’s upcoming birthday party in September, he had no idea he’d get more show than he bargained for.

After all, what would his mummy think?! We think under those suits and floral hats, there’s a side to the Queen that likes to get down — or at least appreciate a woman who can.
