Princess Diana's been trying to fade into the background during her holiday on the Vail, Colo., slopes. No such luck.

Some who said they'd spotted the estranged wife of Great Britain's Prince Charles mentioned her friendliness and "gorgeous smile." Others were limited to repeating the rumors."I heard her face and head were swathed in fur, like a scarf," said Karen Baginski, an employee for the ski resort.

"She's charming, unassuming and looked you in the eye," said Susan Fritz, owner of the restaurant where the princess had lunch with friends this week. "She thanked the servers."
