H.R.H. Prince Adolphus, 1st Duke of Cambridge visited Cassel in 1803 and received the Order of the Golden Lion from Prince Frederick of Hesse-Cassel, whose youngest daughter Augusta was then a child. Fifteen years later Adolphus and Augusta were married in two ceremonies, held firstly in Cassel and secondly in London.
