The kingdom’s inaugural entry in the beauty contest marks a historic moment in the pageant’s legacy, promising to add a fresh dimension of cultural diversity and representation to the esteemed competition.

The Riyadh-born model is among pageantry veterans, having represented the Kingdom in numerous other events including Miss Arab Peace, Miss Planet, Miss Middle East, and more.

Al-Qahtani has over a million followers on Instagram and has been spotted wearing clothes that represent Saudi designs in various events. In interviews with the news media, she has highlighted her desire to promote Saudi Arabia’s culture and heritage.
