Re: Lux. GD royals & the EU Elections
Thanks for the information.
The Dutch King and Queen won't be voting. They and other members of the Royal House all have voting rights but unlike Luxembourg The Netherlands does not have compulsory voting.
Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard only started voting after she abdicated. Im not sure if the current king and queen have ever voted. If his mother, brother, aunts, uncle and cousins have voted is not published. They like every other Dutch voter have the right to vote but can also abstain if they chose to do so.
Thanks for the photos.
Did Belgian and Dutch royals also voted/used to vote?
In this time of European elections, the Hereditary Grand Ducal Couple and Prince Félix today casted their votes in the electoral office "Ratskeller" in Luxembourg-City.
