In Slough she was able to see the telescope designed by William Herschel. She visited Bath, and tasted its warm healing waters. At Richmond she supped with the Duke of Queensberry. She also visited Brighton to enjoy the sea. Her arrival created a stir, and did not escape the tabloids.
She dined with England's bon ton, travelled with them and attended their parties. She was certainly more warmly welcomed than the duchesse de Polignac, as seen by this article:
The Princesse de Lamballe with her suite accompanied by the Duchess of Devonshire, Lady Duncannon, and other ladies of distinction, conducted by his Grace the Duke of Richmond, the principal officers of the Artillery and others of high rank, and attended by Sir Peter Burrell and other gentlemen of fortune known to her Highness abroad visited the Royal Academy at Woolwich and was present at a field day of the Royal Artillery After seeing manoeuvres with guns small aims mortars &c., they visited the Prince, 90 guns, a new man of war, just completed and ready to launch. Her Highness expressed the utmost admiration at everything shown her on that magnificent ship."
Surely the duchess de Polignac would have expressed the utmost boredom at being shown a war ship!
