A Buckinghamshire National Trust property is set to be transformed into a famous fairytale palace in Amazon Prime Video's adaptation of Cinderella next month.

Waddesdon Manor, the pretty Rothschild house outside of Aylesbury, will play a starring role in the upcoming adaptation, which streams on September 3.

Inspired by the châteaux of the Loire Valley, Waddesdon was built in a French-renaissance style by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild in the late 1800s.

Its twisted turrets, golden brick work and countryside setting meant no Fairy Godmother transformation was needed to turn it into the famous palace.

The manor’s exteriors, interiors and wider grounds were all used in the production - and regular visitors will immediately recognise distinctive features such as the portico balcony.

Cinderella has an impressive list of stars, including Hazlemere's own James Corden.

He will star alongside comedians James Acaster and Romesh Ranganathan as footmen, while Camila Cabello will play Cinderella.

The cast also includes Idina Menzel, Minnie Driver, Pierce Brosnan, Missy Elliott, Beverley Knight and Nicholas Galitzine in the role of Prince Robert.

It is not the first time Waddesdon has appeared as a royal residence on the silver screen - having doubled as Buckingham Palace in both The Queen (starring Helen Mirren) and The Crown, as Château de Fontainebleau in A Little Chaos (starring Kate Winslet), and even Versailles in BBC’s McMafia.

Kim Hallett, filming consultant for Waddesdon, said: “Never before has Waddesdon played such a central role in a production of this scale, nor had the chance to shine as an instantly recognisable building in its own right.

"It’s been wonderful to see such a unique place bring its own magic and charm to this classic tale, and as Waddesdon is open to the public we look forward to welcoming visitors to come and see ‘Cinderella’s palace’ for themselves."

Catch Waddesdon in Cinderella on Amazon Prime Video from September 3.
