Works by Cecil Beaton, Lord Snowdon, and Patrick Lichfield, who were given unprecedented access to the Queen's private life make up the show.
The exhibition features 35 photographs spanning a 50 year period from 1950, when HM The Queen was still known as HRH Princess Elizabeth, right up to 2001, a year before The Golden Jubilee.
Highlights include photographs taken during private moments, away from the grandeur of royal life, as well as more iconic public moments such as the Coronation of 1953
A Diamond Jubilee Exhibition: Portraits of HM The Queen will be on show at The Lightbox from December 6 until February 10. Entrance is free.
