Schloss Richmond was built between 1768 and 1769 for Princess Augusta of Great Britain, the elder sister of King George III. She was married to Charles William Ferdinand, future Duke of Brunswick, on 16 January 1764 and the palace was a gift from him.
The architect of the palace was Carl Christoph Wilhelm Fleischer, and the palace lies in the city of Braunschweig (Brunswick) in Germany. It was named after her home in Richmond Park, and it was built in the Baroque style. It was mainly used as a summer residence. On 17 May 1768, it became the birthplace of a future Queen when Augusta gave birth to her third child there. The little girl, Caroline, would go on to marry her first cousin, the future King George IV of the United Kingdom, although it would all end in disaster.
In 1935, the city bought the grounds from Ernest Augustus, Duke of Brunswick and the palace has been used for events since 1945. It is not normally open to the general public, although you can join a guided tour and you can enter the park and walk around it.
