Padmé Amidala appeared in the Star Wars franchise with Natalie Portman’s likeness roughly a year before the prequel trilogy began, reopening the question of how her daughter doesn’t remember her.

Canonically, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia never truly knew their mother, as they each only briefly saw her as newborn babies before she died.

The Star Wars Thrawn Trilogy’s comic adaptation features a painting of Padmé that potentially solves the issue of Leia remembering her mother in Return of the Jedi.

The only mention of Padmé in the Star Wars original trilogy was during a conversation between Luke and Leia in Return of the Jedi, in which Luke reveals that not only is Darth Vader his father, but that he’s also Leia’s sister.
