Taking to the comments section, many followers pointed out just how much the couple's children, Prince George, ten, Princess Charlotte, eight, and Prince Louis, five, have grown. 

"What a wonderful picture! The children are growing so fast!" one person penned, while another added: "Wow, those children are growing up fast! What a beautiful picture of you all."

Many also pointed out how tall Prince George looks, with one person writing: "Oh these children are GROWING UP!! George being almost as tall as Kate, Charlotte looking 8 going on 18, and not so baby Louis!! So so beautiful!!" while another remarked: "George looks so much like William in this pic at the same age. He is going to be quite tall. Beautiful photo."

Others also commented on the resemblance between Princess Charlotte and her great-grandmother, the late Queen Elizabeth II

"Princess Charlotte is looking like great grandmama every year," one fan penned, while another remarked: "Princess Charlotte is getting very tall. She's a beauty and has a strong look of HM Queen Elizabeth II about her."

In the family photo, Prince George is seen standing next to his mother with his hand positioned in his pocket while Princess Kate has her arm around her son's waist. Meanwhile, Princess Charlotte looks super relaxed while sitting in a chair at the front, with her legs crossed. Her little brother, Prince Louis, can be seen with his arm resting on the side of the chair opposite to George, with his father's hand resting on his youngest son's shoulder.
