It’s been almost four months to the day that Britain’s Prince Harry visited the Jersey Shore.

Back on May 14th, Governor Chris Christie rolled out the red carpet for the Prince.

He showed Harry the progress that had been made to get the shore town of Seaside Heights and the iconic boardwalk back in shape for the summer season.
