Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's relationship "makes sense", according to film director Reg Traviss.
The 35-year-old actress - who has reportedly been dating the 32-year-old royal for seven months - has been given the thumbs up on her romance by the 39-year-old 'Anti-Social' movie maker who believes their love is the real deal.
Speaking to PEOPLE about the couple, Reg - who is also known as the boyfriend of the late singer songwriter Amy Winehouse who died in 2011 - said: "I thought that sort of makes sense."
And Reg has credited the brunette beauty - who plays the role of model Kirsten in the crime film - as a "very good" actress because she never mixes her words and always reads her lines 100 per cent word perfect.
He explained: "[Meghan] hits their marks all the time, never fluffs a line and gets a script straight away.
"She's a very good actress -- very, very professional and really well-trained. She can definitely lead a film - be it in an independent film like I work in or a Hollywood film -- there's no two ways about that. "
And Reg has denied claims he has cut out a large amount of scenes with Meghan in to not upset the British royal family, and has admitted a few shots didn't make the final edit because they weren't "gang-related".
He said: "Meghan Markle is a fish out of water, an American girl in London [in the film].
"[In the third act] the emphasis is on her as she works out really what has been going on. It is a serious situation - which way will she will go, grass them up or go along with it and risk everything?
"Meghan's character has less scenes in this version. They all have because we cut it down, made it more genre specific as a gang-related movie and certain scenes had to come out."
