[libvirt-users] Keyboard problems with VNC access

I am pretty new to libvirt, but have succeeded in setting up two VM's, 
Windows 10 and ClearOS (a Centos derivative) and they both have the same 
issue. I have installed both of them with a UK English keyboard, but the 
host machine is remote and in the US with a US locale. When I access 
either through VNC (I've tried TightVNC and VNC-Viewer), a number of my 
keys don't map correctly. As an example the \ key comes up with a #, and 
the # key comes up with a 3 (as does the 3 key). Other keys are the 
standard US type of mapping, but the £ (above 3) comes up blank and the 
$ (above 4) comes up with $ which, I think is the UK setting and not the 
US setting. At this point I am thoroughly confused.
Does anyone have any ideas?
