Prince Harry’s visit to tour the ravages of Sandy on the Jersey Shore, reported by The Inquirer’ Amy Rosenberg, is good for business and attracting the international press.

Because, you know, Gov. Chris Christie isn’t getting enough attention these days. Christie even gave the Prince one of his trademark fleece jackets.

The day after Prince Harry toured Seaside Heights, summer home to the Princess of Snooki, the giant Jet Star roller coaster — like some ossified Loch Ness monster — was finally removed.

Anyway, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden visited Philadelphia last week.

But why stop there.

We need more royals, especially the Brits with their ravenous pitbull press.

So let’s invite Prince William, permament tabloid poster gal Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and their future bambino/bambina to tour our fair city.

Anyone can visit the Barnes and other cultural and historic wonders but perhaps the Royals could make stops at places that need more help.

Like Philadelphia’s public schools.

Or vast swaths of the city that could use some love, attention and investment.
