It's not the first meeting between Queen Silvia of Sweden and Chris O'Neill – the dashing financier who captured her daughter Madeleine's heart.
But now it appears the relationship has been consolidated after the royal trio were spotted enjoying a meal together in New York.
Twenty-nine-year-old Madeleine has found happiness in the Big Apple since relocating there after splitting up with fiancé Jonas Bergstrom.
The pretty princess found love again with Chris, and they now live together in a plush Manhattan apartment.
Despite some initial resistance from King Carl Gustaf – who it was reported had hoped his daughter would stay in Sweden and assume more duties as a working royal – the dust seems to have settled on the move.
And Madeleine took advantage of her mother's recent visit to integrate her new beau further into the royal family.
Although things are clearly going well, another milestone could be just around the corner.
On May 22, the blonde will soon take a trip back to her homeland for the christening of her little niece Princess Estelle.
Royal watchers will be waiting to see if Chris accompanies her to the highly-anticipated event.
