The family all sported shades of blue for the family photo, which was taken by Chris Jackson, Getty Images Royal photographer, The Mirror reported.

Jackson also took Prince George's officially fourth birthday portrait this summer. People magazine believes that the family portrait was taken at the same time, since George is wearing the same outfit in both images.
