She effortlessly plays Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2.
Charles, who was 39 at the time, was also seen attempting to play the cello.
The royal tour that included Princess Diana polishing off the ivories was part of their 1988 visit to Australia.
It came five years after the couple first visited Australia together – a tour which remarkably included Prince William when he was just a toddler.
