The Caribbean Queen is 28 year-old Amy Harris-Willock. Crowds turned up at the Grand Finale of the Miss Caribbean UK Beauty Pageant on Saturday 5th December at the prestigious Shaw Theatre on the Euston Road, London in the United Kingdom. The Antigua and Barbuda beauty, Amy Harris-Willock, stole the show and won the prestigious competition with her beauty, athleticism and eloquence. She also won the best dressed with Agye France among others with compliments from celebrity judges such as the beautiful Rachel Christie. As pageant winner, Amy will receive £1,500 in prize money, the chance to visit Antigua and Barbuda, and a £1,000 designer evening gown, along with many more prizes.
The pageant was launched last year to showcase and promote the Caribbean countries. With its logo ‘Positively Promoting the Caribbean’ the event aims raise to awareness of issues relating to the Caribbean people in the UK and the wider Diaspora by inspiring, informing and uniting both those taking part and the UK audience. Organisers Clayton and Jacqui Brown aim to use pageantry to unify, inspire, educate, entertain and celebrate the historical and cultural impact of the Caribbean. They state that, “MCUK is more than simply a beauty competition, our winner will be an ambassador for this culturally rich and beautiful part of the world. Patrons shared an unmissable night of culture and entertainment produced and directed by award winning stage director and choreographer, Reuben P Joseph”.
