Prince Harry Begins Jersey Shore Visit with Sea Girt Landing

British Royal greeted by Gov. Christie to begin tour

He may have focused his visit on Mantoloking and Seaside Heights, but Prince Harry's trip to tour Jersey Shore devastation began in Sea Girt.

The British Royal landed on the base here, and was greeted by Gov. Chris Christie.

The governor took to twitter, announcing the prince's arrival, and presenting him with a "Royal Fleece." Christie's own fleece became synonymous with his press conferences and tours following Hurricane Sandy.

Prince Harry continued to Mantoloking and Seaside Heights as one of the last days spent stateside of an approximately one-week trip. The purpose of his visit to the Jersey Shore was to tour devastation of areas impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

Sea Girt National Guard Armory has a historic military museum that was hit hard during Sandy. Since Prince Harry is a military school graduate that would be a good place to start his visit.

Read the article, Matt. He just landed in Sea Girt at the base. He spent most of his time between Mantoloking and Seaside Heights.
