* Liz Grainger from ''Series/WishMeLuck'' is the perfect embodiment of this trope: a pretty (but not too pretty) well-bred, upper-class young woman who is also courageous, principled and willing to [[WorldWarII serve her country.]]

* Evie Frye from ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedSyndicate'' fits this trope well, whilst combining it with several traits from LadyOfWar into the mix via her role as a deadly assassin and master marks-woman. In appearance, she's a slender, petite young Londoner with freckled, rosy cheeks, and sports a PrimAndProperBun of chestnut hair. In character, she is calm, no-nonsense and is able to hold herself in any situation with a good deal of grace, despite the mayhem surrounding her.

** Dorothea is the one that comes closest to playing this trope straight, as she is at once beautiful, incredibly modest and a seriously good person, but she is a bit too "fervent" in her beliefs and ideals, and a bit too interested in "manly affairs" (such as managing her land, or science and learning) to be considered a completely decent lady in 19th century England.

An English Rose is often composed and dignified in any social setting. A major characteristic is her humility in terms of family and society. Her will can be iron-hard, [[SilkHidingSteel while seemingly subservient]]. Before marriage tends to be a [[SpiritedYoungLady more spirited version]], but doesn't necessarily lose that spirit after marriage. In fact, one of the charms of the English Rose may be her ability to maintain decorum and pleasure regardless of any trouble.

* She is fair skinned, has a rosy glow to her cheeks rather than being eerily pale. Her complexion can be described as peachy pale or porcelain like.

If the trope is PlayedStraight, she must be English. Englishness is defined by her origin and family background. English Rose from a FantasyCounterpartCulture and sci-fi futuristic versions are allowed. England might not exist in the setting, but if said land and culture are based on real life England, associated character tropes may be used as well.

* Evie Frye from ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedSyndicate'' fits this perfectly: She's slender, petite, has freckled, rosy cheeks, a PrimAndProperBun and dresses very classy. The big outlier is that she is also a [[ActionGirl master assassin who can slaughter people by the dozen in a fight, climb about London like professional freerunner, is a sharp markswoman AND an excellent fight clubber.]]

* Her figure, beauty, dress, and manners are modest and conservative rather than provocative or sexy.

There is no requirement for actresses portraying her actually to be English, or even British. However, it's rare to find actresses playing these characters in English-language media (foreign productions are obviously another story) from outside the [[UsefulNotes/TheCommonwealthOfNations Old Commonwealth]] (minus UsefulNotes/{{Canada}}).
