14 Mar 2022 | Camilla Suarez

Making a grand comeback after a short halt, the 70th Miss World pageant is geared up for the coronation ceremony on the 16th of March as the organization has welcomed the top 40 delegates back in Puerto Rico.

While the competition finale was supposed to be held in December 2021, due to an unfortunate turn of events, with the grand night just two days away, seven candidates from Miss World 2021 went in isolation after a possible Covid-19 exposure. The organization had to postpone the global broadcast finale due to the safety interests of its staff and contestants.

After a wait of two months, the stunning divas have officially attended their first day post arrival today as they commence with the pageant activities once again. So, as we are just two days away from the grand gala night, here is a quick recap of the journey so far.
