It may afford some satisfaction to the inhabitants of Brighthelmstone, to say (and we speak from good authority) that the executive Government being lodged in the Prince, will not prevent his honouring Brighton, occasionally, with his royal presence, dusirng the season; so well does the air and sea-bathing at that place agree with His Royal Highness.
From The Sussex Weekly Advertiser, 1788
It is still uncertain when the Prince will re-enliven this place with his presence. His Royal Highness’s House Steward, Mr Beckes and the greater part of the Prince’s Brighton establishment, still, however, continue at the Pavilion. That his Royal Highness, therefore, will shortly be here, is the prevalent opinion.

Yesterday being Christmas Day, the good old English fare, Roast Beef and Plumb Puddings, was liberally dealt out with all the wonted hospitality of the season, in defiance of Bonapart, and his half-starved hungry legions, who must have acknowledged the superior benisons of the British Government, could they have witnessed the mess boards of the Soldiery at our barracks – all smoaking with pudding and beef, in honour of the festive day.
