At London's National Portrait Gallery, the Queen gets her close-up many times over.

To mark the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II's reign, the National Portrait Gallery opens a new exhibit, "The Queen Art and Image," starting tomorrow.

The exhibit includes paintings, photographs, and press images by renown artists and photographers including Annie Leibovitz and Andy Warhol.
