Tony Blair on Late Princess Diana: I was Worried for Her

In his new memoir, former Prime Minister Tony Blair speaks out about the late Princess Diana, revealing that he was "worried for her" after she split from Prince Charles and began seeing multi-millionaire Dodi Fayed.

"I was worried for her, frankly," Blair told "This Week" host Christiane Amanpour while on "Good Morning America" about the Princess' relationship with Fayed. "I mean I was worried because it was obviously going to be extremely difficult. And I wanted her to know, what the implications and consequences of all of it was going to be."

Princess Di and Fayed passed away tragically in a car accident in Paris in 1997, the same year Blair became Prime Minister. "Partly because of the loss, but partly because of the circumstances in -- in which she died, there was also a sense of anger. Now, some of that anger was directed at the paparazzi, but some of it, I think, was -- was directed at the establishment that people felt had let her down in some way," he said on Thursday's "GMA."
