MANILA, Philippines – The Miss Universe Organization confirmed that 2017 winner Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, along with 2016 queen Iris Mittenaere and a number of other pageant ladies, are set to arrive in the Philippines very soon.
“It’s happening… The reigning #MissUniverse Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, #MissUniverse 2016 Iris Mittenaere and some of this year’s contestants are heading to the Philippines!,” a post on the pageant’s Instagram page said.
“They’re looking forward to the incredible hospitality of Department of Tourism – Philippines, seeing some of the 7,107 Islands, being a part of DOT’s Women Of Significance Gala Night, and the #MissUniverse Fashion Show,” the post read.
The Department of Tourism also confirmed the news on Facebook. However, there is no date yet for the trip.
No details of the tour have been released, but Manila Bulletin reported that the ladies will have a meet and greet session, fashion show, and gala event.
The visit will be a second one for Iris, who was crowned in Manila last January, while this will be one of the first out of the country tours for Demi-Leigh, who won the title last November 26 in Las Vegas.
