Miss World organization, led by its Chairman and CEO, Julia Morley, announced today on Good Morning Britain with Piers Morgan that the Miss World 2019 pageant will be held in London, England on December 14.
Around 130 incredible women from all over the world are expected to arrive in London on November 20. They will compete in a series of fast track events that guarantee a place in the Top 30 and these include Multimedia, Sport, Talent, Top model, Head to Head Challenge and Beauty With A Purpose, taking them on a journey across some of London’s most iconic landmarks and experience its rich culture and heritage.
Julia Morley said, “London is the greatest city in the world to visit. It’s where Miss World started in 1951 as part of the Festival of Britain celebrations and this year, we are going to put on the best show ever.”
“Each year we bring together women from around the world with a shared sense of purpose. For many of them, this will be their first visit to London, and they are all so excited. They can’t wait to share their traditions, the music they enjoy, the food they eat and the astonishing range of ‘Beauty With A Purpose’ charitable projects they are working on.”
‘Beauty With A Purpose’ is the heart of Miss World. This global platform inspires and empowers thousands of young women from around the world to use their talents to raise awareness and funds in aid of humanitarian causes that make real and lasting tangible differences to the poor, sick and disadvantaged.
While the organization announced earlier this year that Thailand will host the competition in December, the country will instead host next year for the pageant’s 70th edition.
The highly-anticipated Miss World 2019 pageant will be broadcast globally to over 150 countries.
Miss World 2018, Vanessa Ponce de León of Mexico, will pass on the crown to her successor at the end of the event.
