Caroline Jurie, the reigning Miss World has given up her crown amid pageant controversy.
The international Mrs. World Inc. Organisation said it has accepted the resignation of 2020 Miss World, Caroline Jurie.
The organisation, in a statement on Wednesday, said that following Jurie’s resignation, Kate Schneider, the first runner up at the international pageant and Mrs Ireland World, will take over as the new Mrs. World 2020.
The former beauty pageant claimed the winner, Pushpika De Silva, was a divorcee and therefore was ineligible to contest in the Mrs World 2021 international pageant to be held in December.
Jurie was, however, arrested by the police after a complaint was lodged by the pageant winner, De Silva and released on bail.
