News of Prince Harry’s budding romance with actress Meghan Markle broke just this week, but the couple already seems to be getting serious. She’s even met his dad, Prince Charles. (Not your average meet-the-parents kind of date.)

Markle gets extra brownie points for earning Prince Charles’ approval; a source told Us Weekly, “It went really well. Everyone loved Meghan.”

Last weekend, Harry reportedly made a secret trip to visit Markle at her home in Toronto, according to Us. “He was buzzing with excitement when he arrived,” a friend of the prince said.

While everyone else was enjoying Halloween festivities, the pair stayed in at her suburban home cooking and playing with her two dogs. “It’s very serious,” the source added.

There aren’t any pictures from the low-key rendezvous, but the actress did post this photo on Instagram, which seems very reflective of her weekend with her new beau.
