Bea and Harnaaz's reunion happened on Monday, April 25, 2022, a day after the Indian beauty queen landed in Manila.
The duo's get-together was captured on video by the Miss Universe Organization and was shared on their official Instagram account.
"Reunited!! [heart emoji]," the caption read.
In the video, Bea is seen giving her Miss Universe bestie a tight hug.
The Cebuana model, who was visibly emotional, told her, "I can't believe that you're finally here!"
In a short interview after giving each other a hug, Bea expressed how glad she is now that she's reunited with Harnaaz.
She said, "I'm actually very happy that Harnaaz is finally here. This is such an emotional reunion for the both of us.
"We've been just talking about it and now she's here!"
Harnaaz echoed the same sentiment and revealed that she has also been manifesting her dream to visit the Philippines.
The 22-year-old model and actress said, "We have been talking about meeting and she used to be like, 'You need to come to the Philippines!'
"And I'm like, 'Let's manifest!' And we manifested together and I'm so happy to be reunited with one of my best friends that I found during Miss Universe!
"Lots of love!"
Bea and Harnaaz became close since they were together most of the time, along with Bea's roommate Miss Universe Singapore 2021 Nandita Banna and Harnaaz's roommate Miss Universe Nepal 2021 Sujita Basnet.
The four beauty queens also shared the same coordinator throughout the pageant.
In her interview with ABS-CBN correspondent Dyan Castillejo on December 13, 2021, Bea said she was actually rooting for Harnaaz to win the Miss Universe title.
She said, “Si Miss India, she’s one of our roommates, and we all knew na siya po talaga yung mananalo.
"We are all rooting for her, kasi nga she works really hard, and there are even times na sobrang pressured niya na tinutulungan namin siya.
“So, we're very happy for her. We know what she's capable of and we’re very happy with the result. We’re proud of her.”
