Audio slideshow: 'Enchanted' Kensington Palace

A magical spell has been cast over the State Apartments at Kensington Palace - not to be broken until 2012.

Whilst building work is carried out in parts of the building, actors and designers - including Vivienne Westwood - have transformed other palace rooms, to tell the stories of the Royals who used to live there.

Take a tour with Bill Mitchell of theatre company Wildworks, palace curator Joanna Marschner, and fashion designer William Tempest.
