The 21-year-old said: “I was not expecting it.”

Linne was crowned in a ceremony held at the Ephelia Resort & Spa at Port Launay.

Twelve girls contested the title. Petra Richard, 20, was first princess while Genevieve Rene, also 20, clinched the second princess title

Linne added: “I thought Petra was going to win it. But then when they said that Petra is the first princess, I was like ‘this is for me’. I was emotional before they mentioned my name.”

Minister for Tourism and Culture Alain St Ange had told the 12 girls: “Tonight one of you will get a new life and we hope that it leads to greater things.”

Sherin Naiken, the chief executive of the Seychelles Tourism Board, said the raison d'être behind the Miss Seychelles beauty pageant was to create role models who were humble and ready to serve the country and work with the people.

She urged the winning girl to make Seychelles proud.
