Chris Christie Gives Prince Harry A Royal Fleece (PHOTO)

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) greeted Britain's Prince Harry with a "royal" gift on Tuesday.

As part of his weeklong visit to the U.S., the prince on Tuesday stopped by New Jersey communities that had been devastated by Superstorm Sandy.

Christie tweeted a photo of himself greeting the prince with a very special gift:

The garment matches Christie's own fleece jacket, which he famously wore in the weeks after Hurricane Sandy. Last week, Christie debuted a parody video with the premise that his popularity relies heavily on the fleece.

After his trip to New Jersey, Prince Harry will travel to New York City to promote British trade and a community baseball program, the Associated Press reports.

Last week, the prince kicked off his U.S. visit on May 9 in Washington, honoring military families with first lady Michelle Obama.
