Natalie McGovern is an American beauty queen, singer, and writer from Omaha, Nebraska.
Natalie is the first documented Miss America titleholder and American beauty queen to be stripped of her title due to her age. She won the title of Miss Alliance 2012 on February 26, 2012, a local preliminary to Miss America and qualified to compete at Miss Nebraska 2012. Within one hour it was discovered that she was too old to be a reigning titleholder. Although she was 24 at the time of the pageant and the age cutoff was 24, she would turn 25 in December 2013 which made her ineligible to compete. The incident caused the Miss America Organization to amend the contract and state that no contestant would be older than twenty-four (24) years of age by December 31st. Natalie won the title of Ms. Nebraska United States for the Miss United States Organization in 2014.
She graduated from the University of Nebraska at Omaha with a bachelor’s degree in Communications. Natalie was recognized as a top Communications student and inducted into Lambda Pi Eta. She owns a princess character entertainment company and performs locally as Natalie Christie.
Natalie's lineage dates back to the Stuart-Tudor monarchy of Mary Queen of Scots. Her ancestor William Brewster was an American patriot.
On November 16, 2017, Natalie sang the National Anthem for the U.S. Olympic Curling Trials broadcasted by NBC Sports. She was named as a pageant expert by Life&Style Weekly in 2017.
