Mrs. World Inc. announced in a statement that it received resignation of Caroline Jurie, and therefore, Mrs. Ireland Kate Schneider was now Mrs World 2020.
After the reigning Mrs. World, Caroline Jurie, resigned over the Mrs. Sri Lanka pageant on-stage fracas, first runner-up Kate Schneider from Ireland was bestowed with the title of Mrs. World 2020. Mrs. World Inc. announced in a statement on Wednesday that it received the resignation of Caroline Jurie, and therefore, Mrs. Ireland Kate Schneider was the new titleholder. The agency published a photograph of Schneider with the title Mrs. World. Jurie was involved in a controversy at the Mrs. Sri Lanka pageant after she aggressively pulled the crown off the head of the title winner Pushpika De Silva, at a ceremony on national TV.
The former Mrs. World alleged that De Silva was ineligible for the crown as she was divorced and had concealed the details from the jury. Police in Sri Lanka arrested Jurie for hurting Pushpika De Silva in Columbo and released her on bail later. The incident attracted global flak, as people flooded social media with appeals to take the Mrs. World title from Jurie back. During a ceremony televised nationally, Jurie had accused de Silva saying that she was a divorcee and only married women were qualified to become Mrs. Sri Lanka, although, the claim was contested by Mrs. Sri Lanka later who confirmed that she was, in fact, separated. After de silva took a legal course against the insult and the injury she sustained, Columbo police announced in a statement, “We took Mrs. Jurie and Chula Padmendra into custody.” Cops took the former Mrs. World under custody for damaging the property at the pageant venue, Nelum Pokuna Theatre, and for injuring de Silva.
