Prince Harry Tours the Jersey Shore With Chris Christie, Leaves Starry-Eyed Girls Gawking

Prince Harry has hit the Jersey Shore — but not to GTL with the MTV gang.

On the heels of his Colorado trip going off without a hitch, His Royal Highness joined New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to tour through areas along the shore that were devastated by hard-hitting Hurricane Sandy.

After stopping in the on-the-mend town Mantoloking, Harry and Christie visited the battered boardwalk at summer-getaway spot Seaside Heights, where the famous fist-pumping, club-hopping Jersey Shore cast filmed several season of their hit series. In both locations, Harry greeted gathered residents, explored in the rebuilding efforts, and shook the hands of emergency and construction personnel.

For local giddy girls and woman, the handsome royal was welcome break after six months of rebuilding. Many maneuvered their way in through the crowd, some just to glean a glance of the redhead and others to snap a souvenir picture.

Now Harry is in Manhattan, where he spent the afternoon with Prime Minister David Cameron riding around town in a red double-decker bus to promote British tourism. And before leaving the country, Harry will head up to Greenwich, Conn., on Wednesday, where he will captain a polo team in the Sentebale Polo Cup.
