Lightbulb Through a Glass Darkly

Despite the continued unrest in Kosovo, Britain's Prince Charles on Monday paid a morale-boosting visit to British troops serving in the province..He met soldiers from the Irish Guards and the Ghurkas..Security was tight in Pristina..Some major roads in the capital were closed to traffic and a scheduled walkabout was cancelled at the last minute..The prince, wearing army fatigues, was greeted by Lieutenant-General Mike Jackson of Britain, outgoing commander of the KFOR peacekeeping force..The heir to the British throne was then flown by helicopter from the airport to the centre of Pristina..He had lunch with officers of the Irish Guards, the Gurkha Engineering Squad, the First Battalion Highlanders and British police serving in Kosovo..Charles continued his journey by road to meet soldiers of the 10-thousand-strong British contingent serving with KFOR..He was also scheduled to meet U-S General Wesley Clark, outgoing Supreme Commander of NATO forces in Europe, and Bernard Kouchner, head of the United Nations mission which runs Kosovo... of your love and care, and what I hear are his natural surroundings, it's hard to say, it's a matter of luck and care, your Majesty..She told me to become a pilgrim..So I started to walk...
