On the banks of the Thames River in southwest London, Kew Palace was originally known as "the Dutch House".
Kew Palace was a royal residence between 1728 and 1818.
Kew Palace was leased by Queen Caroline in 1728.
It was used as a residence for Princess Anne, Princess Amelia, and Princess Caroline, the daughters of George II and Queen Caroline.
In the 1750s, Frederick Louis, the Prince of Wales, used the Dutch House (Kew Palace) as a school for his sons, Prince George (the future George III) and Prince Edward.
The Prince Edward, the Duke of Kent and Strathearn , married Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld at Kew Palace in 1818.

The Prince Adolphus, the Duke of Cambridge, married Princess Augusta of Hesse-Cassel at Kew Palace in 1818.
Kew Palace was used to hold a dinner hosted by Charles, Prince of Wales to celebrate the 80th birthday of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II on April 21st, 2006.
In 1738 Alexander Pope, the poet gave Frederick, Prince of Wales, a dog.
The following verse was inscribed on the dog's collar:

I am His Highness' dog at Kew.
Pray tell me, sir, whose dog are you?

The Dutch House (Kew Palace) was used as a backdrop in the 1733 painting Philip Mercier did of Frederick, Prince of Wales and the Prince's sisters.
