Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

Harry’s visit promised a lighter tone than his stop the previous day in New Jersey, where he toured two shore communities devastated by Superstorm Sandy.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie showed the prince a spot in Mantoloking where the sea had cut the town in half, taking out a bridge and houses. The channel has since been filled in. Every one of the wealthy town’s 521 homes was damaged or destroyed. Scores remain as piles of rubble.

“This used to be a house?” Harry asked at one barren spot.

The prince said he was impressed to see “everyone getting together and making things right.”

He also spent Tuesday in New York City at events promoting tourism, entrepreneurism and philanthropy.

The prince, the son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, began his visit to the U.S. on Thursday. He is third in line to the British throne, after his father and older brother, Prince William.
