Has he done anything noteworthy in Germany to lead you to believe that? What contribution has he made to German society?

Is there complete certainty about the Crown Prince and Dorothea Von Salviati not having a male heir? What if there were a male heir born out of wedlock? Any whispers about this?

Had Prince Wilhelm and his wife Dorothea had a son, it doesn't matter whether he was born during or previously their marriage, he wouldn't have any kind of succession rights. This because Wilhelm and Dorothea's marriage was unequal and thus morganatic.

The article says that he is second in line (presumably to his father). When he isn't in line at all.

He would be second in line IF his father hadn't been excluded from succession.

Ok, it is questionable whether it is fair to punish someone for marrying a commoner. But then it's not possible to turn back the wheel of time. That happened in another generation, when perception of these things was still different.

Louis Ferdinand has chosen Georg Friedrich as his heir. As I perceive it is not fair to constantly question GF's headship of the house. Do they expect GF to disregard his grandfather's wishes and gand over his responsibilities?

Why would the German people ever want to re-establish their monarchy? They are probably the most economically powerful nation in Europe and appear politically stable as well. If they did not restore after Weimar or Hitlers Third Reich what conditions could possibly prompt them to restore a monarchy they rid themselves of almost 100 years ago. Surely no one is nostaligic for the age of Wilhelm II.

And another question is: would Germans accept the restoration of only one German monarchy? Or each German Land would have its own monarchy, like before 1918?

I am German, and I don't perceive the wish for a restoration of the monarchy amoung my fellow Germans. Our current form of state, the republic, is the most stable, successful and peaceful state we ever had. We won't gamble that away just because we like to watch the glamour of other European monachies.

Georg Friedrich Prinz von Preußen is perceived as the head of the former imperial family, nothing more. He has gained the respect of many Germans because he has found a good balance between the historical importance of his family and the reality of a functioning republic. Imho, he would loose this respect from the people if he started to seriously compaign for restauration.

As for Philip Prinz von Preußen, well, I'd be surprised if only 1 % of the population has ever heard about him.

Prince George of Prussia is not a republican anyway.

The problem concerning this whole issue is NOT that in Germany the people don`t want Monarchy, the problem is that MOST people don`t have a clue what Monarchy and the relating FACTS is all about. We face a threatening loss of value and the only value that is cerished is consuming - as it is in nearly all European and western influenced countries. They know the price of everything and they don`t know the worth of anything.
People stick to their prejudices and one concercing Monarchy is that it would be to expensive, what is nonsense when you make the effort to compare figures.
People think Monarchy and democracy are excluding one another without recognizing that several European democracies are Monarchies.
In the end watching "Germanys next Top Model" or similar TV shows is more important than thinking over political problems (of which do exist a lot more today than the issue of having a Monarchy).
But IF people would look closer to Monarchies (and the effects in countries in Europe that are one) and to the republic that exists in Germany today they definitly would see that this republic is NOT the successful country one of the previour forists wrote. History of the republic in Germany at a closer look shows corruption (in moral not unlawful way), advantage taking, inefficieny and disgraceful connections between politicians and lobbyists of nearly every government whether on federal or state level since 1945.

And before 1945, what did you have, just ask most of the world.
