Miss World 1975 becomes ‘Lady’

Miss World 1975, Puerto Rican Wilnelia Merced-Forsyth, received the title of ‘Lady’ after her husband Sir Bruce Forsyth -long time British entertainer- received his knighthood by Queen Elizabeth on October 11th.

Bruce Forsyth received his long-awaited knighthood yesterday – and managed to surprise the Queen in the process. After the ceremony at Buckingham Palace, the 83-year-old said: ‘The Queen told me: “Thank you for entertaining the country for so long.”

The 85-year-old monarch – a fan of Strictly Come Dancing, which the entertainer hosts – awarded him the title of Sir Bruce Forsyth-Johnson, Knight Bachelor for services to entertainment and charity.

He was dubbed a knight by the Queen, who lightly touched him on the shoulder with a sword that belonged to her father, George VI. The king used the ceremonial weapon when he was colonel of the Scots Guards while Duke of York, before being crowned.

As he emerged from the ballroom, Sir Bruce called out ‘Good luck’ to honours recipients on their way to receive their awards.
One joked: ‘We were impressed to see you get off your knees’, to which the entertainer replied: ‘That was an effort, I can tell you.’

Lady Forsyth, who turned 54 yesterday, said: ‘I could not be more proud of him.’

Joined by his Puerto Rico-born former Miss World wife, their 24-year-old son Jonathan Joseph, known as JJ, and his daughters from previous marriages Charlotte, 34, and Laura, 48, were also there to witness the proud day.

The award also marks his charity work, something the star does privately.

Admitting he feared he might never receive the honour, when the knighthood was announced in the summer, a delighted Sir Bruce said he could not wait to call his wife ‘my lady’.

Lady Forsyth has acted as a judge in several Miss World contests. Her mother, Delia Cruz is currently the head organizer of the local leg of the pageant in her home, Puerto Rico. Courtesy of the Daily Mail
