ECONOMYNEXT – Kate Schneider from Ireland has been named Mrs World 2020 after Caroline Jurie resigned following a controversial de-crowning of a Mrs Sri Lanka during a pageant in Colombo.
“The Mrs World Inc Organization has received the resignation of Mrs Carloine Jurie (sic) as Mrs World 2020,” the organization said in a letter posted on their verified Facebook page.
“Her voluntary resignation decision was solely made by Caroline herself. We wish Mrs. Jurie and her family, all the best in their future endeavours.
“The first runner up, Mrs. Ireland, Kate Schneider, will now become the new Mrs. World 2020.
Jurie said she took it upon herself to de-crown Sri Lanka’s 2021 Mrs Sri Lanka Pushpika de Silva as she was ‘divorced’ and had used a loophole in the system to enter the pageant.
De Silva had insisted that living separately from her husband but not divorced and was eligible.
