America knows all about Governor Chris Christie's love of fleece zip-ups—they abounded on his love-fest with President Obama while touring the damage of Hurricane Sandy last year. But when Christie bestowed one upon Prince Harry this morning before their photo-op tour of the Sandy recovery, he was actually giving one to a kindred spirit. Harry, too, is a fan of the fleece.

Christie tweeted: "Greeting Prince Harry at the Jersey Shore the best way I know how; with his own Royal Fleece." And note the photographic evidence. Look at that smile on Harry's face. He knows he is getting a fashion item that he truly prizes:

And here is Harry wearing a Walking With The Wounded fleece at an event in 2012. His fleece today also looks to have that charity's logo. See this photo from April
