Montague House

Inscription

A bath beneath the paving and this wall are all that remain of Montague House the home between 1801 and 1813 of the Princess of Wales, later to become Queen Caroline, wife of George IV.

On the sequence of events the plaque is not clear. Caroline married George in 1795 and after the birth of their daughter they separated and Caroline came to live here in Montague House 1801-13. In 1814 she left Britain.
