The pageant industry commonly uses specific courtesy titles to clearly identify the difference between queens, pageant divisions and organizers. The titles are those also used in business practice: Miss, Ms. and Mrs.
Miss - Single, never married, nor given birth to a child.
Ms. - Single, divorced, widowed or married, with or without children.
Mrs. - Married, with or without children.
The long-standing use of these titles allow the public, potential contestants and those interested in pageants to easily understand the difference between queens and pageants with similar titles.
