The ROCOR Diocese of Great Britain website has a story of the forthcoming tonsuring of a Western-rite nun in the Stavropegial WR St. Petroc Monastery Paruchia, under Hieromonk Michael (Mansbridge-Wood) on  Sunday February 14/February 27 at St. Eanyswythe WR Mission in Devon, Great Britain. The website explains that:

St Eanswythe's is a stavropegial Western Rite mission of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, directly under the omophor of His Eminence Metropolitan Hilarion of New York and Eastern America, and operates within Great Britain with the agreement of His Eminence Archbishop Mark.

May the Lord bless this new nun and grant her many years service for the Russian Orthodox Church!
I may be wrong, but think this is the only WR nun  in ROCOR apart from one Sister n the Christ the Savior WR  Monastery in Canada.  It is not known whether the new nun will be a Benedictine like her sister in Canada.

The UK ROCOR Diocesan Directory has this entry for the WR Mission of St. Eanysythe:

Stavropegial Communities
The following communities, while on the geographical territory of the Diocese of Great Britain and Ireland, are not part of the diocese but are directly under the omophor of either His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia or His Eminence Metropolitan Hilarion of New York and Eastern America.

Yes, indeed I do intend to Bless a novice nun on the 27th at the chapel in Jumpers Road, Christchurch, Dorset.  The service of Blessing was received from Bishop Jerome yesterday and has been shared with two other monasteries.  The novice nun concerned will act as my secretary-cum-assistant in administering the missions that we now have:  Saint Nectan Monastery Mission in Devon,  Saint Eanswythe Monastery Mission in Dorset and Saint Swithbert Monastery Mission in Holland.

I am sure she will be a blessing for your missionary work Father.  May the Lord grant you both many years.

Goodness!  People actually read the diocesan website?  Shocked I suppose I ought to get my act together and update a few things, then.
