Laetitia Casta, the uncrowned queen of Corsica

If François Hollande were ousted, the French Government collapsed and the Corsicans had suddenly to choose a queen – our bet is that they’d vote for Laetitia Casta to rule from a throne in Ajaccio…

The beautiful model and actress Laetitia Maria Laure Casta wasn’t actually born in Corsica (but in Pont-Audemer in Normandy, in 1978); however, her father was Corsican, and the young Laetitia was ‘discovered’ while on a summer holiday on the island… and also voted ‘Miss Lumio 1993’. This would surely be enough for the proud Corsicans to elect the internationally admired Casta as their representative? And who could blame them if they did?
