Helen Morgan (Miss World)


Helen Morgan (Miss World)

Helen Elizabeth Morgan (born 1951), of Barry, Wales, is the 1974 winner of the Miss United Kingdom pageant. She earned the right to represent the United Kingdom in Miss World, eventually becoming the second Welsh woman and the fourth UK representative to win the competition in 1974. The celebration was short-lived, however, when she resigned four days after her victory, upon the discovery that she had a child. Although this did not violate the competition rules (which stipulated only that entrants must be unmarried), she was made to resign.

First runner-up Anneline Kriel of South Africa succeeded her. Helen became the first winner to resign, and the second not to finish her reign as Miss World. Marjorie Wallace, the titleholder in 1973, was fired in March 1974, but the crown was not offered to any of the runners-up.

Prior to competing in Miss World, Morgan represented Wales in the 1974 Miss Universe Beauty Pageant, where she finished First Runner Up to Amparo Muñoz of Spain. When Amparo Muñoz resigned as Miss Universe before the end of her reign, the crown was not offered to Helen or anyone of the runners up.

She currently resides in France.
