Are the members of the Mexican Imperial Family interested to return to the country of their ancestors?

Do you mean a daughter or a sister of HH Count Maximiliano de Götzen-Itúrbide?
Because they have the same name 'Emma'. I suppose - it's the sister, who lives in Western Australia.
At the official site of the Imperial House of Mexico only her 7 children are mentioned. Why not to write an e-mail to the Imperial House for further details?

The Mad Monarchist blog is a good resource. He lives in southern Texas, so Mexico is essentially local history for him. Try to contact him, Richardhwinn.
Hope this will help.

Emperor Maximilian of Mexico

Without doubt, the greatest man who ever lived.

Yes, there is: Maximilian von Götzen-Itúrbide, Head of the House of Iturbide. He is a descendants of both Emperor Augustin I (by blood) and Emperor Maximiliano (by adoption). He is the pretender to the throne since 1949.

Here is his biography from his official website:

To American perceptions shortly before World War One, the history of the French promotion of Emperor Maximilian 50 years earlier formed a background to the especially strong hostility to Germany's plan to 'allow' Mexico to annex formerly Mexican lands in the Southwestern US.

When the British intelligence service, therefore, leaked the contents of the Zimmermann Telegram, containing the German plan, to the US authorities, it knew that US reaction would be hugely angry and hostile. It was thus judged worthwhile to fake a robbery where the British supposedly 'discovered' the Zimmermann Telegram, and then they 'helpfully' showed it to the US mission in London, thus avoiding the implication that the British had been reading the coded communications to Washington, DC., but currying favor with the US, whose assistance as an ally in World War One was strongly desired.

The British intelligence service thus reckoned correctly that, just as the US resented French promotion of Emperor Maximilian of Mexico during the American Civil War, as a European interference in Western Hemispheric affairs, so also the US, with memories of the sinking of the Lusitania, would also hugely resent the Zimmermann Telegram.

There is thus an undoubted historical and geopolitical link between Mexican Emperor Maximilian's short reign and the events 50 years later which led to the US entering World War One on the side of the British, the French, and the Italians.

In the event, Mexican President Don Feliciano Carranza, rejected the contents of the Zimmermann Telegram's proposals, but it was deemed somewhat irrelevant in the US in any case: the US had already declared war on Germany.

(Read: 'Venustiano Carranza')
