Christie will chaperone Prince Harry at Jersey Shore

Governor Chris Christie told his NJ 101.5 listening audience that the Prince of Wales will keep his clothes on when he visits the Jersey Shore in May.

“I am going to be spending the entire day with Prince Harry,” the governor said, “believe me, no one is going to be getting naked if i am spending the entire day with them.  I think I can assure the people of New Jersey that, much to their relief.”

Prince Harry will be visiting the United States May 9-15 to visit survivors of Superstorm Sandy and to promote charities he supports that help injured service men and women in the United States and the UK.  In addition to New Jersey, the Prince will visit New York City, Connecticut, Colorado and Washington, DC.

When Harry visited Las Vegas last August, he lost a game of strip billiards.  Nude photos of him were leaked to TMZ.

If you missed Christie on Ask the Governor, you can view the show here.  The remarks about Harry start at about the 56 minute mark.
