When I was very young like twenty something, I only knew the life around me eg. my family, my immediate and extended family members, my close schoolmates, my workmates ...... etc.

Even though, who knows exact what happens in everyones life beyond oneself. People gain their perception through the hearsay around, bits here, bits there, no one, unlikely to cover the all.
In my youth, there was a famous headline called "不愛江山愛美人" which means "No love of the power over the kingdom but a lover". It was the story about the Duke of Windsor who abdicated the throne for his beloved woman who became the Duchess of Windsor when married to him.
Such a beautiful tale has been told for 60 years until the real story was revealed by FBI in recent years. Prince Edward was King of the United Kingdom from 20/1/1936 until his abdication on 11/12/1936.
That was what whole world knew,the simplified surface was reduced from the actual huge and complicated political event. Of course the King wished to hold on to the throne, and the couple were not happy about the loss of the kingship. Further more, the couple was never happy about being sent away by the appointment of the position in Bahama. 
The abdication was actually forced by all of the prime misters.
Now the story of Diana is another face of the life. I mean the faces of the life. You may not  have been interested so you would not be able to know all.
I heard the Prince William talk about his mother on the TV last night. It was huge pain in the princes heart, but he remembered what his mother taught them "It was the duty and responsibility for us to hold on so sometimes we had to do the things that  we may not like." (of course I can not remember the exact the wording) I was so moved, it is the upbringing.
My motherhood is your childhood, I am not sure what kind of the childhood in your memory but I know my motherhood. It was a difficult job as a mother of a single child but the motherhood was always full of joy and memorable.
People think it may be difficult to have more kids but now I just realize how difficult it is to have only one child. If a child is not happy for being lonely without any sibling, the mother is not happy too unless the mother has the power to make up the shortcoming.
We thought it may have not been a bad idea to leave the child to live on her own while we were overseas, but we did not mean to push away our dear child.
There were all the things happening not as we predicted or expected. Everyone involved has his own version of the certain event of the life.
Therefore I now do learn that the life has many faces.
