The Honourable Madeleine Allsopp (born circa 1902 to 1905) is the daughter of Lord Aysgarth and a friend of Rose MacClare.

Physical Appearance: Madeleine is a terribly pretty young girl with liquorice brown curls and beautiful chocolate-brown eyes, exquisite beneath thick lashes. Thin lips and pale skin, she has a slim frame and elegant appeal. No doubt enchanting (character and all) she will certainly find a loving man.

Personality: Madeleine has only appeared in one episode but she has proven herself to be; poised, gracious, kind and a good friend-to Rose, Ms Dudley Ward and Harold Levinson in particular.

Background

Madeleine's father holds a barony in English peerage. The daughters of Viscounts and Barons (the two lowest ranks of peers in the British system) are not entitled to be called "Lady [First name]" like the daughters of Dukes, Marquesses, and Earls, but are instead "the Honourable [First name] [Last name]". Thus, as the daughter of a Baron, Madeleine is "the Honourable Madeleine Allsopp", rather than "Lady Madeleine." Nevertheless, as the daughter of a peer, Madeleine is automatically eligible to be presented at court.

2013 Christmas Special

Both Rose and Madeleine are presented to King George V, Queen Mary, and the Prince of Wales at Buckingham Palace in 1923, implying that Madeleine is around 18 to 20 years old.

She is encouraged by her father, who has little money, to take an interest in Harold Levinson while he pursues Harold's mother Martha because they are rich. She ends up liking Harold from the heart and was upset that he had to go back to America. She also decides not to be a part of her father's schemes anymore. Harold in turn begins to like her more.
