Jersey: Are You Ready For Prince Harry’s Visit?


It’s just one week until Prince Harry visits New Jersey, and everybody there is tired from practicing their curtseys. Second Is The New First, a blog that covers the prince, outlines his schedule for Tuesday May 14:

Prince Harry will visit the Jersey shore town of Mantoloking and then Seaside Heights (best known as locale of MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” but I don’t see Snooki or Pauly D on his agenda) to see post-Sandy rebuilding efforts. He will also meet with emergency service providers. New Jersey mayor Chris Christie has promised to keep an eye on Harry (Daily Beast) and Jersey-native Royal Review is ready to lend a hand.

The New Jersey Star-Ledger reports:

Mantoloking Mayor George Nebel said Prince Harry will take a walking tour of about 10 damaged homes next Tuesday.

“Everybody’s welcome here,” Nebel said. “I think he wants to try to see the devastation on the Shore and Mantoloking is probably the hardest hit on the Shore.”

And New York Mag comments: “It’s a far cry from the last time the 24-hour-party prince was Stateside and making tabloid headlines. He might be on a shorter leash, but that doesn’t mean he can’t be given a big American welcome.”
