Who says beauty queens can’t make fun of themselves while fulfilling their duties?

Instagram was filled with love and delight recently as three adorable and gorgeous Miss Universe queens showed it’s indeed more fun in the Philippines, especially if the Miss U crown is in.

In a boomerang video shared in the official Miss Universe Instagram page, the three queens are seen playfully “fighting” over the crown. Former Miss U queens Pia Wurtzbach and Iris Mittenaere play tug-of-war for the most-coveted Mikimoto crown in the Dusit Thani Hotel in Makati City.

Meanwhile, our lovely reigning Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters wouldn’t miss the fun as she played along by acting shocked upon seeing what the two ladies were doing. As of posting, the clip has reached almost 438,000 views; getting a bunch of silly comments and laughs from pageant fans.

Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere also posted on her personal account a formal photo of the trio with the caption “3 in one.”
