Once the family home of King George III, Queen Charlotte and their children, Kew Palace is one of London's most prestigious event venues.
Queen Charlotte was wife to George III. They shared a happy life together at their homes in Windsor and at Kew Palace.
However, their lives were changed and saddened by the King’s devastating mental illness.
