Prince Harry to see Sandy destruction along Jersey Shore
Britain’s Prince Harry will see for himself the destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy when he tours the Jersey Shore later this month.
The prince will visit the township of Mantoloking on May 14, the town’s mayor, George Nebel, announced.
He’ll then leave for Seaside Heights with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
Mantoloking was the town hardest hit by October’s superstorm. Each of its 521 homes suffered damage.
Harry’s official trip runs May 9-15, during which he will tour several U.S. cities.
He’ll be in New York City to promote a partnership between a community baseball project and a foundation run by his brother and his sister-in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – better known as Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Harry will also visit Washington, D.C., where he’ll make a pilgrimage of remembrance to Arlington National Cemetery. He’ll also take part in a charity polo match in Connecticut.
The prince’s last trip stateside ended in controversy when he was photographed naked after a game of strip poker at a Las Vegas hotel.
