Reigning Mrs World, Caroline Jurie has resigned her title weeks after she was involved in a controversy at the Mrs Sri Lanka pageant. 

 

Jurie made international headlines after yanking the crown off the winner Pushpika De Silva, at the local segment of Mrs World in Sri Lanka at a Colombo theatre this month, claiming she is a divorcee and therefore was ineligible to contest in the Mrs World 2021 international pageant to be held in December.

 

She was arrested and released on bail this month after the fracas at the Mrs Sri Lanka pageant in Colombo.

Mrs World Inc confirmed the resignation on social media. The statement read; 

 

“Her voluntary resignation decision was made solely by Caroline herself.”

 

Kate Schneider of Ireland, the runner-up in the 2020 contest which Jurie won, will be the new Mrs World 2020.

The organisation had said that it was a local matter for the country’s pageant organisers to review and that it would have no bearing on the Mrs World 2021 contest that Sri Lanka will play host to this year.
