Prince Harry landed in New Jersey Tuesday as part of his goodwill trip that's been taking him across the U.S. His visit to the Garden State is to see areas hit by Superstorm Sandy last fall.
In honor of that royal visit, PEOPLE asked a true Jersey princess, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, to offer some tips for the party-loving prince, and here's what the former Jersey Shore star – who'll be back for a third season of MTV's Snooki & JWOWW – and new mom has to tell Prince Harry:

Balloons and babies? That's not how the Jersey Shore gang used to party.
On the season 2 finale of MTV's Snooki & JWoww, new mom Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is in high gear prepping a surprise engagement party for her costar and son's godmother, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, and her fiancé, Roger Mathews.
With baby Lorenzo in tow, a recently slimmed-down Polizzi is putting up decorations before her guests of honor arrive, when longtime pal Pauly D shows up.

She's wearing a tiara and a white dress with a big purple heart in the background under the headline that blares, "Jionni and I eloped!"
But the fact that Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi posted what she calls "a pic of the magical day" on her blog on April 1 makes one pause and wonder.
Is the reality starlet married or is this just a clever April Fool's Day prank?
While the dress and the setting all look over the top, well, what isn't in Snooki's life?

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi became a mom last August and she has some humorous tell-it-like-it-is words advice for Kim Kardashian.
Speaking as MTV's celebrity baby correspondent, Polizzi, 25, offered the expectant and (ahem) fashion-forward Kardashian video tips on looking glam when bringing her baby into the world.
While waiting to dilate, there's plenty of time to apply makeup, Polizzi advises. "I waited 27 hours and the whole time I just put on makeup and watched cartoons," she said. But hospitals are "boring" with blank white walls so a nice pink or red lip is key to looking your best. Advises the reality star: "Stay away from the nudes."

New mom Snooki is a sight for "shore" eyes.
Since dropping more than 40 pounds of baby weight after giving birth to son Lorenzo last August, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has been keen to show off her hot body.
In new photos she posted on Instagram, the petite reality TV star, with her auburn curls and trademark heels, poses in jungle-print swimsuits that show off her trim physique.

How do you lose more than 40 lbs. in six months after giving birth? Just by really, really wanting to – it's as simple as that.
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi did just that, and says anyone can do it if they're committed to looking trim and fit again.
"I don't consider myself to be, like, a 'celebrity mom,' " the Jersey Shore star, 25, says in an interview airing Monday on The Dr. Oz Show. "I don't even consider myself famous. I just think I'm well known. And I'm very relatable, I feel. And I'm just a normal girl doing normal things."

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi knows how to party – even when it's for a christening.
The Snooki & JWoww star celebrated her 7-month-old son Lorenzo's baptism on Sunday and let all of her fans in on the big day via social media.
Polizzi – who recently lost 44 lbs. – showed off her svelte figure in a royal blue floor-length dress. "Proud parents today," she wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo with her fiancé, Jionni LaValle.

No meatball here!
Just five months after giving birth to son Lorenzo, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi says she's shed the 44 lbs. she gained during her pregnancy.
"Right now I'm 109 lbs., and I've been working out with a trainer since Halloween," Polizzi, 25, told PEOPLE at Logo's season 5 premiere party for RuPaul's Drag Race in New York on Friday. "I go four times a week, and we do legs, arms and everything. And after every one-hour workout, I do an hour of cardio."
But she's the first to admit earning her post-baby body was hard work.
