A view of the 'third' Kew Palace, begun in 1802 by James Wyatt with much input from George III. It was much-ridiculed: in 1820 John Bew, in his 'The ambulator; or, The stranger's companion in a tour round London', wrote; 'This Angleo-Teutonic, castellated, gothized structure, (which has never been completed, and probably never will be,) must be considered as an abortive production, at once illustrative of bad taste and defective judgement'. The Prince Regent didn't like it and after the George IIIís confinement at Windsor Queen Charlotte refused to live there. In 1828 it was demolished with the interiors used elsewhere: the main staircase was installed in Buckingham Palace.
