Report: Prince Harry to Visit Mantoloking, Seaside Heights

Security will be tight, however, report says

Britain's Prince Harry will visit Mantoloking and Seaside Heights during a May 14 visit to New Jersey to survey damage from Superstorm Sandy, a report from The Associated Press said Monday.

Mantoloking Mayor George Nebel said Gov. Christie will accompany the prince on a brief walk down Barnegat Lane – which runs along Barnegat Bay – and then head to Seaside Heights, according to the report.

Security will be tight and local residents will most likely not be able to see the prince, the news organization reported.

Christie's office told Patch Monday that the details of the prince's visit were being handled by the British consulate in New York City. Patch contacted and left a message with the consulate's press office on the matter.

Christie, in March, notably said on New Jersey 101.5's "Ask the Governor" program that he would keep tabs on Harry during his visit to New Jersey, and that he was "thrilled" the prince wanted to visit the state and be helpful in the process of recovering from Sandy.

I have it on VERY GOOD authority that Prince Harry is just visiting Sleaze-Side Heights to meet Snooki and J-WOWW. The Prince fully intends to eat, drink and be merry during his sojourn to Ocean County, NJ.

1. Freedom of speech (constitutional right) 2. If you shun an individual, (by NOT responding to her remarks), they will go away 3. Don't respond to my comment. Move on. 4. It's time for reality to set in. We finally let go

I agree, time to ignore the crazy racist voice known as Jerzymom. She will go away if we don't waste our time trying to rationalize with her anymore

So the Prince will visit sleazeside heights and mantoloking. This proves my point that they will conveniently skip Ortley Beach (which lies between the two visit sites). The reason in my opinion is that Christie does not want the Prince to see what an abject failure Toms River (a republican run town )has been in the recovery of Ortley Beach. Ortley Beach has now apparently become an embarassment to be avoided at all costs. Of course there is no problem in collecting property taxces there .

I agree 100%. Why doesn't anyone speak about Ortley? Our beaches may not even open this summer. Very few people are in their homes. But all you hear about is Seaside.
