3 Case for Sir Hugh Cairns, Sir Fitzroy Kelly and Mr Fitzjames Stephen, Box 29 C. IV c, Trinity College Documents. Joseph Romilly records in his diary the entertainment of the Judges in Hall in July 1838. "George and I", he wrote, "dined in Hall at 4^ where we met the Judges, the High Sheriff (Layton), most of the Norfolk circuit, the Mayor and most of the University and Gentry in the neighbourhood. Mr G. A. Browne did the honors extremely well; the speaking was amusing. Pryme spoke briefly and sensibly: the Mayor made a long speech in praise of himself.

The problem of the accommodation of the Queen and Prince and their suites during this second visit gave rise to a prolonged correspondence between Phipps and Whewell; and when the latter made difficulties, the Prince's secretary reminded him that Trinity Lodge was a royal palace, and that therefore the Queen could claim to occupy the whole of it. He believed himself to be on sure ground; and was much taken aback by Whewell's indignant denial that this was so. "I assure you", he wrote on 3 July, "I never was more astonished than when I received your paper this morning, which appears to throw a doubt upon the Queen's right to consider Trinity Lodge as her own Palace whenever she goes to Cambridge.

2 3 24 THE JUDGES AND TRINITY COLLEGE that the Duke of Cambridge proposed to attend his installation as Chancellor of the University, immediately instructed the Vice-Chancellor to inform Whewell, that "the members of the Royal Family (of the Blood Royal) claim, I believe, a right to a reception at Trinity Lodge, as belonging to a Royal College, whenever they visit the University of Cambridge"; 1 and though Whewell, not having been notified in time, was unable to entertain the Royal Duke, he fully admitted the Duke of Northumberland's claim on behalf of the Royal Family.
