"Old school pals catching up from #timbertop", Ms Ryan wrote on Instagram.

"I remember you used to follow my dad around asking him questions and I remember you stirring the milk", said Jane, as Charles smiled and laughed.

An image of the pair was shared online on Wednesday.

Michael Collins Persse was among those gathered to mark the royal's 70th birthday year at an official reception, where he recalled the then 17-year-old as a young history buff with a unique access.

Prince Charles and Camilla's visit to Australia came just days after a poll revealed that the residents wanted to end the monarchy in their country.

It will be the final day the prince and duchess are together, with Camilla set to attend events in Brisbane on Friday before flying home, while Charles will fly to Bundaberg and then on the Vanuatu, Cairns and Darwin.
