Kew Palace--back

IMG_0341

This building was originally the Dutch House, built originally for the family of Sir Richard Levett. Queen Charlotte died here in 1818, and Queen Victoria retained "the Queen's Cottage" until 1897 when she gave it to the nation. She'd already given over most Kew Gardens on her accession.
