Well...somewhere in Europe, more to the east, in a country with a not so strong democracy, to say so, member of the European Union, this actually happened, all this being videotaped on the official filming of the Parliament, the images got to the press, people saw what happened, were outraged.
There were penal complaints in justice from the parlamentary opposition, at the prosecuting magistracy, between the documents being sent also the video recording and images from that moment.
One year (!) there was absolutely no response received from the prosecuting magistracy.
After one year, the magistracy did respond, saying that there was not enough evidence in order to begin a penal procedure against the president of that parlamentary meeting; however in their response they said nothing about the pictures taken or the recordings.
That person today is still well in charge, being president of the second chamber of the Parliament.

I am very sorry to hear that. One thing that is functioning rather well is our justice system. That helps a lot. I do not quite understand myself how it has managed to get there as but seventy years ago, the German justice system was a shameful disgrace...

Of course, even today it is not perfect. But at least they did not hesitate to investigate the case of the German Bundespräsident when they found it to be necessary.

I wish you all the best! May justice rule in your country.

A good read about restoring the German Royals.

Nice to see someone raise the issue as it seems to have got a bit of attention from the media.

As always some people are so shallow that the only comments they can make are insulting ones about how people look. (I'm referring to the aticles comments, not the ones gere)

Interesting but not very practical. How would this be set up and who would financially support the restoration. Would it be the taxpayers of Germany footing the bill or would it be privately funded through the royals themselves?

If the German monarchy was restored, who would become the King? Would it be Prince Georg? Or someone else?

The voters of Germany could vote on this. If the voters voted yes it could be under the condition that whomever is the King or Queen has to have some type of job which benefits the country. This could be promoting German Business, promoting tourism to Germany, etc. They would be paid a salary which would be decided by the German Government and one that was reasonable.

I don't think restoration of Monarchy will ever happen in Germany, but I'd love to see the current Prussian Royal Couple become more integrated with other European Royals. There must still be some very raw nerves about the past, but I wish that would be smoothed over. I think a few Brits were invited to the wedding last August, and perhaps the new couple will be invited to some of the future royal shindings. I'd love to see that happen.

The last emperor has managed to fall out with close to all his Royal relatives and those who live today obviously don't feel the need to interact with the Prussians.

Yes, that's a shame, I think. I've read that CP Maxima, and other European Royals have visited Germany, but it doesn't look as though they've met with Georg F. and Sophie. I guess I'd like to see that happen sometime in the future. The world has changed so much I would hope newer generations could ease into friendlier relations.

I hope it changes in the future. I can easily see the German Presidency being replaced with a constitutional monarchy if the German people have a desire to do so. They are great followers of the other Royals in Europe; I hope they consider it.

To be entirely honest: I wouldn't mind a Kaiser Georg Friedrich. He seems such a nice/smart guy and both, he and his wife, would most probably make good representatives. At least all I've seen of them so far surprised me in a pleasant way. Also, a constitutional monarchy is not the worst thing on earth. We've had quite a few fools as presidents now and they will get fat pensions for the rest of their lives, some of them for sure haven't worked as long as the Queen of England.

But such a scenario, like a restoration of the monarchy, will never happen and that's okay. I guess the majority of the Germans wouldn't even know who Georg Friedrich is. Germany is a republic and it will remain so.

I don't think Georg would accept the throne, he doesn't seem like he is really into the monarchy but he would be better than the last ruler of Germany had.

I don't think they would bother offering it to him if he didn't want it.

Yesterday - the day of the Dutch Inthronement - TV station n-tv made a poll, whether Royalty shall be restored in Germany - and more than 70% voted for "yes".
Well, I do not see this happen in the short term, this surely also was influenced by the enthronement...... nevertheless an interesting number.

Surely the Germans have better things to do, like bailing out Europe, than restoring a long gone throne,

But unfortunately can this part in our constitution never be changed. I dislike this fact.
