There is no English navy as such - for most purposes (inluding defence) the United Kingdom (made up of England, Scotland, Wales and Norther Ireland) is considered a single country.

The Royal Navy is responsible for protecting the maritime interests of the UK

You mean that the Spanish Armada was defeated by the English Navy and bad weather. The English navy achieved a victory over the Spanish at the Battle of Gravelines and sever storms disrupted the Spanish fleet

England is only one of 4 countries which make up the United Kingdom - the others being Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Queen is the head of state for all these countries, and in general terms, the UK is governed as a single country. The armed forces are drawn from and protect the whole of the UK. The Royal Navy is the maritime branch of the UK armed forces. There has not been an English Navy for centuries --There has never actually been a English Navy, it has always been the Royal Navy. It was kind of 'nick-named' the English navy because the majority of sailors were English men.

The English navy was created by King Alfred The Great in 9th century in order to engage with Danish longships which were attacking the English coast. King Harold also had a navy which engaged and did much damage to an pre 1066 invasion Norman flotilla of ships that sailed into the channel. We know about King Henry V's navy. Henry VIII and also that of Queen Elizabeth. We can safely say that the Royal Navy is English in its origins. Historically from that time onwards, the English Navy was The Senior Service and naturally flew the cross of St George. It was not until 1707 that the union jack was added.

England was protected by the English Channel and France never created a Navy that was equal to the Royal Navy in seamanship and gunnery.

Alfred the Great defended England against the attempted conquest of the Danish Vikings. He also designed a fleet of long ships in order to build up the English Navy.
