The couple first went public on Instagram on Sept. 24, 2020, when Wilson shared a group shot of the pair boarding a helicopter to Monaco alongside Helen Mirren and Kate Beckinsale.

Busch is part of the Busch family, founders of the Anheuser-Busch brewing dynasty. He launched his own brewery in 2016, Son's Beer, alongside his friends Elliott Taylor and Carlo Mondavi.

After landing in Monaco, the couple soon made their red carpet debut with a number of swoon-worthy shots at the Monte-Carlo Gala For Planetary Health, hosted by Prince Albert II of Monaco.

Wilson later commented on her fun-filled evening saying, "Meeting the Prince with a Prince Charming by my side - what a night to remember in Monaco."

The pair met in 2019 — during Wilson's "Year of Love," in which she focused on being open to meeting new people and going on as many dates as possible — introduced by a mutual friend. When quarantine began, they stayed in touch while Wilson was in her native Australia and the Anheuser-Busch heir remained in Los Angeles. Their relationship heated up when Wilson returned to L.A.

Despite the travel restrictions due to the ongoing pandemic, Wilson has traveled a fair amount — spending time in New York City, L.A. and Australia, in addition to taking trips with Busch to Cabo San Lucas and Aspen.

During their time in Mexico, the pair enjoyed a romantic beachside movie night, surrounded by candles and snacking on BBQ food.

Still, the pair have also learned how to make the most of an at-home date night.

"Well, right now because it's gotten so cozy, I'll put on the fire, and we just eat at my house," she told PEOPLE in November. "I'm just all cozied up. We normally order in something, and then just cozy up, because it's just that time of year."
