As Miss Wales 2020 was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was a two year wait for Gabriella Jukes, Miss Wales 2019, before she was able to crown her successor, 18-year-old Olivia Harris from Magor. Olivia had also been a finalist for two years waiting for her moment to come! Congratulations Olivia, we hope it was worth the wait. Less than two months after her win, Olivia went on to represent Wales at the 70th anniversary of Miss World in Puerto Rico.
