It is my understanding that when someone refers to "elites" it is generally referring to very wealthy people who do not have to interact with society like "regular" people do.
They are usually very wealthy, have people who do everything for them like shopping or cleaning or cooking or child care and that sort of thing.
A normal person gets up in the morning, walks the dog, makes breakfast, feeds the family if there is one, gets kids off to school, picks up the house, goes to work, tries to exercise at lunch, sits in meetings all day, commutes home, checks home work, cooks dinner, has an hour of "personal" time and then goes to bed. (This is very generalized)
An "elite" may wake up at the crack of 10am, goes to the veranda where breakfast waits with the newspaper. The decorative pet sits on a pillow and then at noon the personal trainer shows up and they exercise in a private gym for an hour then has a sauna. When the kid gets home, they may, or may not talk to them and ask how their day was. Then they go and get dressed in the clothes that have been laid out for them and then get driven to a club or dinner where they drink top shelf liquor and muse about some mundane topic with others of similar circumstances.
To the "regular" person, the "elite" are out of touch with society. They do not shop at walmart, they dont worry about losing the car or the apartment, they have very different lives.
