Princess Rose is a royal princess that lives in the kingdom of Berryvania. She lives with the Queen of Berryvania in the castle and lives the dream life of a princess with fancy dresses, jewelry, butlers that serve her, and many many more, but even with all this luxury in her life, Rose sometimes dreams of being free from her princess duties and have the freedom of a normal girl for a day.
Princess Rose was born into the royal family when she was a baby. As she grew up, Rose was taught the royal ways of being a princess, such as walking properly, learning table manners, curtsying to guests, and everything else. She loved her new princess life and her new family. By the time Princess Rose was around Strawberry Shortcake's age, she started to grow tired of being stuck in the castle all the time and being restricted to her princess duties. Rose's mom, the Queen of Berryvania, strictly won't let Rose out of the kingdom unless she comes with her too. Rose is allowed to go into the village near the castle, but must always have a royal guard accompany her wherever she goes. Sometimes, Princess Rose wonders what the rest of the world looks like and dreams of exploring outside Berryvania on her own. She has thought about trying to reason with the queen to let her go out on her own, but she never does because she gets nervous about how the queen would react.
Coming to Berry Bitty City
Princess Berrykin makes an announcement that the Queen of Berryvania is coming to Berry Bitty City to meet with her about a few important issues and the queen is bringing Princess Rose along for the trip. Strawberry Shortcake volunteers to show Princess Rose around Berry Bitty City and make sure she has a good time. When the Queen and Princess Rose arrives in their carriage, Strawberry and Princess Berrykin are the first to greet them. While the Queen and Princess Berrykin have their meeting, Strawberry gives Princess Rose the grand tour of the town, showing the princess everything that Berry Bitty City has to offer. Rose is curious about the town and is amazed at the things she sees. Strawberry introduces Rose to the group of girls and they plan a fun day of activities for all of them to do, starting off with a badminton tournament. Princess Rose, being the well-mannered princess she is, declines participating in the tournament because she doesn't like running around and getting sweaty. The girls think that she's nervous, so they play on as she watches. Princess Rose then suggests that they should go sailing in the boats and she has lots of fun, but the other girls get bored after sailing around and around the lake for about an hour. The day goes on and the girls have a secret meeting and talk about how strange Princess Rose is since she keeps suggesting things that are classy instead of fun and how she doesn't play with them. Rose overhears the meeting and gets upset and runs away. The girls look all over Berry Bitty City for her and Strawberry finds the princess in one of the beach houses. After managing to talk to Princess Rose, Strawberry and the girls decide to honor Rose's princess personality by throwing her a fancy tea party and all the girls dress up as princesses with their puppies as royal jesters. Rose thinks the girls are faking, but the girls apologize to Rose and tell her how truely sorry they are. Rose looks around at the fancy party and at the girls. She smiles and forgives the girls. They enjoy the tea party and Princess Rose even shows the girls how to balance books on her head. At the end of the day, Princess Rose becomes best friends with Strawberry and the gang and promises to come back for another visit.
Princess Rose is a very sweet and polite girl who always uses her manners and shows orderly behavior. She enjoys exploring new things and is curious to learn more about Berry Bitty City and her new surroundings, but is a little shy when trying new activities that she thinks look too wild or energetic. Her princess-like personality means she rarely gets mad, and she'll try to discipline someone by saying that what they are doing is very rude and they should act with more respect if the time ever comes, which is once in a while. She also enjoys hearing classical music as it helps her relax. Rose will always try her best to make her new friends feel better if they are sad or upset by saying kind and sweet things about them.
Her favorite activites include talking with the other girls while drinking tea, taking nice strolls along the trails on sunny days, playing croquet and mini golf, and also ballroom dancing at Plum Pudding's dance studio.
Rose's princess personality also has it's drawbacks. She hates loud or wild things, prefering more to quiet and relaxed things such as a nice picnic in the gazebo or playing croquet. Also, Princess Rose absolutely hates to get dirty and will avoid anything that may get her dirty, muddy, filthy, or sweaty. If she ever does get herself or her clothes even a little dirty, she'll stop whatever she's doing and try to clean it off immediately. Another drawback is that she tends to not think straight when stressed out or under pressure. Rose likes to handle things one at a time so she can be focused on that one task.
When Princess Rose first arrives in Berry Bitty City, she has rose-red hair that is waist-length and has multiple curls of hair that also go along the lining of her hair. She wears a gold princess tiara that's decorated all over with small diamonds and has five ruby jewels on the face of the tiara, with the middle ruby being slightly bigger than the others and in the shape of a heart. Her outfit is a red dress with small gold sleeves and elbow-length gold gloves, with a gold and red ring around the index finger of her left hand. She wears a sparkly gold colored band around her waist and has a gold necklace around her neck with a red ruby heart necklace to match her tiara.
Owned by her family is the royal carriage that Princess Rose uses to travel around on long trips to other places. While it has this style, the color of the carriage is actually red (instead of black), with gold wheels and gold trim. It is pulled by two white horses and can seat up to four people.
PetsRoyal: Princess Rose's puppy. She is trained in elegance and behaves just like Rose. Royal enjoys having bubble baths and looking her best for Rose. Rose met Royal when she found her abandoned in an alley in the village of Berryvania. Rose took the puppy home and adopted her right away. The two are now great companions. Royal likes to dress up by wearing her favorite silver tiara, jewel-studded collar, and blue bow on her tail.
Beauty: Rose met Beauty when her parents gave her the lovely kitten as a Christmas present. Beauty is an adorable kitten who enjoys laying in the sun, playing with a ball of yarn, and having her fur brushed by Rose. Unlike most cats, Beauty enjoys having a bubble bath and doesn't mind water. She'll sit in anyone's lap and purrs when she's happy while also cuddling up to the person. Beauty likes to wear her gold crown, pink jewel collar, and pink bow on her tail.

Strawberry Shortcake: The first girl that Princess Rose meets during her arrival. Strawberry gives Rose a tour of Berry Bitty City and introduces her to all her friends. Strawberry and Rose look almost identical, that a few baby Berrykins mistook Rose and thought she was Strawberry, which Strawberry thought was a little funny. During the day, Strawberry gets to know Rose a lot better by talking to her a lot, learning more about life in the castle and how she was taught to act mature and proper to others.

At first, Rose struggles to be as graceful as the others, but Plum helps her out a lot and Rose learns fast. In exchange for the ballet lessons, she offer's Plum some lessons on ballroom dancing since Plum is a little rusty on that topic.
Raspberry Torte: Raspberry makes all of Rose's play clothes so that Rose can have as much fun as she wants without getting her fancy princess dresses dirty. Rose is still hesitant about getting her play clothes dirty since Raspberry made them so beautiful, but Raspberry tells Rose that it's no big deal if the clothes get dirty, as long as Rose has fun being with her friends.
Mr. Longface: Rose spends a lot of her time with Mr. Longface since the two of them have much in common when it comes to being proper and acting orderly. She always enjoys playing croquet and mini golf as she finds these games quiet and relaxing while still being lots of fun for her.
