Newly crowned Mrs. World Caroline Jurie arrived in Colombo this morning after winning the title at a pageant held in Las Vegas USA on 6 December.
She is the second Sri Lankan woman to win the title after Colombo’s current Mayor Rosie Senanayake won it more than 30 years ago.
“I’m so honoured to share my heritage and culture on the global stage,” she said in a facebook.com post made shortly before the final show started.
The first runner up was from Ireland and the Second Runner up was from the US Virgin Islands.
She beat contestants from 51 countries.
Rosy Senanayake won the crown in 1984 at the finals held in Australia, at the inception of the contest.
In 2019 Jennifer Le from Vietnam was named Mrs World.
