The caption of the above posted scan says they were on (or around) the island Corsica.

Nice to see Queen Paola to feel well so she can go voted!

Yes, only the King and the Queen don't voted. And Luxemburg the same, today also they have elections and only the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess don't voted.

Yes . Members of the RF have to inform that they are abroad and not able to vote. Belgian Vote is obligatory.

The king & queen don't vote to stay neutral.

As voting is compulsory in Belgium, the other royals do vote.

Laura, Luisa & Laetitia (too young to vote) are all living in London.
Amedeo lives is Switzerland.
Joachim was living in South Africa last I heard.

I still think they (both in Belgium and Luxembourg) should not only request the king and queen not to vote but also the direct heirs as first they are asked to choose a position (although they could decide to refrain by not checking any candidate) and later on are supposed to be neutral. If an exception is made for the king and even the queen the same should apply to the direct heir.

That would probably be ill perceived in Belgium as the rest of us have the duty to vote.

Paola seems to be having some kind of issue in her left arm, maybe a lingering problem from her stroke?

I hope she gets through it, although the fact that they are still in Belgium makes me think she's going through physical therapy or is under medical orders, since she and Albert leave the country as quickly as they can once they are released from the hospital.
