Queen Elizabeth reunites with figure from past 70 years later: Photos

A royal reunion!

Queen Elizabeth stepped out for a royal garden party at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday, and the 93-year-old British royal's appearance resulted in a reunion with a woman that she first met back in the 1940s -- when she was still a princess.

Her Majesty first met Margaret Baxter during another garden party in Portsmouth sometime in the 1940s (though it's unclear exactly what year their meeting happened in), and the royal family's Twitter account shared photos from both of their face-to-face conversations.

"Today Mrs Margaret Baxter (far left) was presented to Her Majesty, during which they reminisced about their first meeting, when the then Princess Elizabeth visited, Portsmouth in 1940s," the tweet read.

The account shared a black-and-white photo of Elizabeth and Margaret walking next to each other back when they first met, as well as two photos from Wednesday's garden party, with the Queen looking ready for summer in an all-pink getup, while Margaret wore a black-and-red look while siting in a wheelchair.

Also at the garden party this week were Queen Elizabeth's grandchildren, Prince Harry, Princess Beatrice and Princes Eugenie.
