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:

Dozens of moms, grandmothers and children were attending a White House tea party Thursday when Michelle Obama introduced a special guest.
"Well ... Surprise!" the First Lady told the military families as a blushing Prince Harry joined them in the East Room. The guests, who had been eating cookies, cakes and smoked salmon, broke into applause.
"He's only got a limited amount of time with us but when he heard about the tea party and all of you, he wanted to be part of it to personally thank you for your service," Obama said.

Why hello, Prince Harry!
The royal, 28, arrived at Dulles International Airport in Virginia Thursday afternoon to kick off his week-long visit to the U.S.
Harry was greeted at the Russell Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C., by shrieking and whooping congressional staffers and interns who lined the marble corridors with their camera phones at the ready.
In a very Senate-worthy dark gray suit and red tie, he took it all in stride. "He seemed a little – the word isn't 'embarrassed,' but he seemed to have a normal sort of sheepish reaction," said Sen. John McCain afterward, joking that he himself gets shrieking women all the time at the Capitol.
Harry also visited the White House and was expected to meet with FLOTUS Michelle Obama.

Even titled nobility like Prince Harry can kick back and enjoy the basic gastronomic pleasure of a hamburger – chased by a mojito.
So it was proved only recently at London's Hard Rock Calling music festival, where Harry rocked stage-side to the American band The Killers while he also chowed down from the concert's food menu.
"Harry has joined us at Hard Rock Calling twice now and each time he has visited our Hard Rock Cafe tent," says the Hard Rock's Orlando-based executive chef Jason Gronlund, who describes the chain's Classic Legendary Burger as "topped with seasoned bacon, two slices of Cheddar cheese, a crisp fried onion ring, lettuce, tomato and pickles."

When Harry met nappy!
Prince Harry will soon be an uncle – and he's already learning how to change diapers, or nappies as they're called in Britain.
With his sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, expecting her first child in July, Harry, 28, got a chance to try out his skills Thursday while visiting Headway, a charity that helps brain-injury survivors.

Britain's young Royal Muggles had a magical day out with a visit to the studio where the Harry Potter movies were filmed.
Prince William, Kate and Prince Harry toured Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden near London, home to the newly launched Making of "Harry Potter" studio tour.
There, the royals, accompanied by 500 children and adults from charities they support, got a wand lesson, visited the Hogwarts Great Hall and saw props, costumes and models from the Potter series as well as some other movies.
"Where's my brother, why isn't he doing this?" William, brandishing a wooden wand, said during the lesson.
As Kate (who also had a wand, and wore a cream-colored dress with black spots from TopShop) and William giggled, they were given some "spell techniques' by tour guide Scott Heron, then asked to face a group of children called "Dumbledore's Army" – to whom William bellowed, "Expelliarmos!"

Less than a week after twin explosions at the Boston Marathon left three dead and more than 180 wounded, Prince Harry made his way to Sunday's London Marathon to support the 36,000 runners heading toward the finish line.
Missing the annual event "was never an option as far as I was concerned," he told BBC News. "Everyone that was planning on coming is still here. No one's changed any plans."
Still, the memory of tragedy lingered in a hush as competitors observed a 30-second moment of silence in honor of those who didn't finish their race, reports CNN.
"The way Boston has dealt with it has been absolutely remarkable," added the prince.

Prince Harry announced Friday his intention to follow in the footsteps of British hero Captain Scott and conquer Antarctica.
The world's favorite friendly royal will join three teams of wounded veterans as they race to the South Pole with the aid of the Walking With The Wounded charity, of which Harry is patron.
"The aim remains the same," Harry, 28, told reporters at the launch of the South Pole Allied Challenge in London. "To enable our wounded servicemen and women to do what they do better than anyone else I know. To meet a challenge head on and inspire others to do the same."
The event will start in December and see veterans from the U.S., U.K., Canada and Australia ski across 208 miles of the coldest, most inhospitable terrain on the planet for up to 20 hours a day.

Her nursery in Apt. 1 A at Kensington Palace won't be move-in ready until the fall, but the Duchess of Cambridge – due in July – has been plenty busy feathering her nest.
She's been scouting out decorating supplies, a royal source tells PEOPLE. And after a difficult first trimester, "She's finally getting a chance to enjoy her pregnancy," says a Palace insider. "It's a fabulous time."
