Prince Harry and Gov. Chris Christie are spending the day together in New Jersey as Britain's royal surveys damage in the area from Hurricane Sandy.

The 28-year-old prince is coming up on the final days of his six-day trip to the U.S. on Tuesday and is spending "the entire day" with New Jersey's 55th Governor.

"I'm thrilled that he's willing to come," Christie said during a radio interview ahead of the visit. "He wants to come and see the destruction himself, firsthand. He wants to be helpful. And I am going to be spending the entire day with Prince Harry."

The Republican Gov. also referred to Prince Harry's past visit to the U.S. city of Las Vegas, a trip that made headlines last year. The royal was photographed during a game of strip billiards poker at the city's W hotel.

"And believe me, nobody's going to get naked if I'm spending the entire day with Prince Harry," Christie lightheartedly joked.

With Christie as his tour guide, Prince Harry will see the towns of Mantoloking and Seaside Heights as well as the damage incurred from last year's superstorm Sandy. About 360,000 homes or apartments were damaged by the storm.

Furthermore, Christie presented Harry with a navy blue fleece jacket similar to the one the governor wore in the days following last year's storm.

"Greeting Prince Harry at the Jersey Shore the best way I know how; with his own Royal Fleece," Christie posted to Twitter along with a photo.

Harry's next stop will be in New York City Tuesday evening, where he will promote British trade and a community baseball program before attending a Manhattan fundraiser event.

Also, before heading back to the U.K. and ending his trip, Prince Harry will travel to Greenwich, Conn. to participate in a polo match. The event will promote his charity, Sentebale.

When his trip to the U.S. first began on May 6, Harry was able to visit Washington, D.C. where he spent time with Sen. John McCain as well as the First Lady Michelle Obama.

Harry also visited Colorado where he participated in the Warrior Games, shedding light on soldiers injured while in the service.
