Kew Palace: The Palace was built as a private house in 1631 and is the most intimate of Royal Palaces and used by the royal family from 1729 to 1818. You can sense both the joys and sorrows of past royal lives in intimate detail as a fascinating display of personal artefacts bring King George III and his family to life. In happier times the King, along with Queen Charlotte and their 15 children enjoyed a relatively simple domestic life at Kew, and the palace was filled with laughter and fun, however the atmosphere darkened in later years as family rivalries intensified and relationships soured. Kew eventually became a retreat for the ailing King George and a virtual prison for his elder unmarried daughters.
