IN PHOTOS: Catriona Gray's homecoming parade
MANILA, Philippines – When the queen comes home, there's really no such thing as too much.
While this isn't the first time for Catriona to come home (she spent the holidays – sans fan fare – in the Philippines), it's her first public appearance since she became everyone's silver lining and bagged the coveted Miss Universe crown.
In a pageant-crazy country like the Philippines, you can be sure that homecomings and public events featuring a Miss Universe are anything but ordinary.
Here are a few snaps from the parade, captured by Rappler's photographers and reporters:
