It looks like things are getting really serious in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s celebrity relationship! According to EOnline.com, Markle recently arrived in London and made an appearance at Kensington Palace just days before she and Prince Harry are set to attend Pippa Middleton’s celebrity wedding together. This is big news for the celebrity couple, as Markle has never attended an event with Prince Harry’s family before, or been photographed meeting them. Could it be this is Markle and Prince Harry’s “meet the parents” moment when it comes their Hollywood relationship? It’s hard to say, but either way, attending a wedding together, particularly one as high-profile as this with the rest of the royal family in attendance, is a major deal, especially given how private the pair has been up to this point. Although their relationship was confirmed last November, the two only made their first public appearance together this month, when Markle was spotted cheering Prince Harry on at a his charity polo match, and later stealing a discreet kiss in the parking lot.

This celebrity wedding marks Meghan Markle’s first public interaction with Prince Harry’s family. What are some ways to know you’re ready to involve your family in your relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

There’s no doubt about it, taking your partner to meet your family can be stressful! Here are the top three ways to know you and your sweetie are ready for that big step:

1. You feel secure in the relationship: You don’t want to bring someone home who you’re pretty sure won’t be in your life by next month. If you’re introducing your special someone to your parents and siblings, make sure that’s just what they are; special. If you’re secure in your relationship you can be sure that no matter how it goes with your family that your S.O. will do their best to be well-liked by people who are so important to you and that your family will recognize how amazing and special your partner is.

2. Marriage is a possibility: If you feel like the one you’re dating might just be the one, then you should definitely consider introducing them to your family. Even if such a big commitment could be months or years down the road for you two lovebirds, establishing a relationship with your family as a couple will only make your bond stronger and help your family adjust to the idea of an eventual addition to their inner circle.

3. You’ve met their family: If you’ve already met your significant other’s family, why not introduce them to your own? While taking your partner to meet your family can be scary and hard, especially if you have a complicated relationship with them, it may put a damper on your relationship if your partner feels they’ve been open and shared their family life with you and you haven’t reciprocated. Show your partner that you trust and appreciate them by taking down your walls and allowing them to see behind the scenes of your life and upbringing.
