Belinda Lynette Green (born 4 May 1952) is an Australian beauty queen who won the Miss World 1972 contest at the age of 20.[1]

Growing up in Sydney, she became the second woman from her country to win the title; the first, Penelope Plummer, was crowned Miss World in 1968. The pageant was held in London, at the Royal Albert Hall

Her triumph came in a year that saw Australia win the Miss Universe crown, the Miss Asia Pacific title, and placed first runner-up in the Miss International.

Green was married to advertising entrepreneur John Singleton for several years until 1987. They had two daughters.[2]

Green was married to Neville James Browne. They met in May 1993, commenced to live together on 19 November 1993, and were married on 18 December 1993. They separated on 1 January 1997.[3]

Early life



Green moved to live in rural Australia and settled near the New South Wales town of Cowra. She became a veterinary nurse at Southern Cross Wildlife Care run by Doctor Howard Ralph near Braidwood. The clinic rescues and cares for injured native wildlife and Belinda claims becoming part of the clinic has changed her life. She began as a general assistant and is now a qualified veterinary nurse, undertaking a course of study in her sixties - a challenge she said wasn't easy.
