On Monday last the first stone of the intended new chapel in North Street, Brighton, was laid by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales; about one o’clock the Prince, accompanied by Capt Churchill, Mr Hudson the vicar and Mr Saunders the architect, came to the spot, which was surrounded by all the principal inhabitants of the town, and by a brilliant display of beauty and fashion. Among the ladies were Mrs Fitzherbert, Miss Pigot, Miss Graham &c. &c.

Last Tuesday evening, as the Prince of Wales’s carriage was passing along St. James Street, to Carleton House, the straps of the portmanteau-trunk that was behind were cut by two fellows who took advantage of the footman’s absence; who left his port (on some occasion) only a few minutes. They were however, by his return, prevented from effecting their design. The footman was near enough to the villains to hear them say, it would not do, but before he knew they had made such an attempt; which favoured their escape.
From The Sussex Weekly Advertiser, 1789
The Prince was several days last week confined to his chamber, much indisposed, from a cold he received in pursuing the diversions of the chase on Tuesday [Lord Barrymore had arranged a day of hunting]; but we have now the pleasure to hear, that his Royal Highness is perfectly recovered.
