Proudly South African Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters may have just been crowned Miss Universe, but her heart belongs always to South Africa and she’s taking her compatriots on her exciting new journey.
Demi-Leigh posted a message to social media after her win in Las Vegas, USA, on Sunday thanking South Africans for their huge support.
I may be the new Miss Universe but I will always be your Miss South Africa – we did it!
She said: “South Africa, thank you for your support and love throughout my #MissUniverse journey. I may be the new Miss Universe but I will always be your Miss South Africa – we did it! ????”
Shortly after being crowned, Demi took the time to make a quick video just for South Africa (see below) saying “I’m your Miss Universe South Africa… this is for you.” (Watch below.)
