If HRH Prince Boris moves to Bulgaria and if he speaks the language he could become popular and the Monarchy could become a solution again.

Forget it. If ever any country had a chance, it was Bulgaria. But former King Simeon became Prime Minister, the most partisan political mandate possible, and blew up any chances. As a politician with a direct mandate Simeon was directly accountable for every act of Government. Not to mention that by becoming the highest servant of the Republic of Bulgaria, he ended any monarchal aspirations as he swore loyalty to the Republic and the republican Constitution.

He had never given up his dynastic right and never abdicated.

Yeah... "He had never given up his dynastic right and never abdicated". Dream on Cory. Welcome to reality. A former King who becomes Prime Minister of the Bulgarian republic, to serve under a President of the republic Bulgaria, to obey the republican Constitution of Bulgaria? Of course by all his acts he has taken a bazooka and blew every bit of any monarchal movement in shatters.

Had Simeon never given up his dreams, never abdicated and never given up his rights, but his had his son Prince Kardam been the Prime Minister of the republican state, under a republican Constitution and under a republican President, it was enough to get him hanged for high treason, enough to get Kardam removed out of the Royal House and the succession.

There are actions in words and in deeds. By being Prime Minister Simeon own-handedly buried the crown.

Certainly a King should not be prime minister but Prince Boris is different,is young and could be a symbol for the future.
Without having dreams and ideals would be very different.

What future are you referring to? I agree with Duc_et_Pair noting that King Simeon annihilated the restoration chances. Economist (2001) grasped the situation correctly.
Quote:
Had the ex-king stayed out of government, pulling strings from behind the stage, his chance of recovering the throne (an ambition he has not acknowledged but probably quietly harbours) was not bad. He might, if the constitutional court had allowed him, have had a good shot at winning the presidency when it came up for the voters' choice this autumn. Indeed, he looks rather well suited to being a constitutional monarch. But now he will be enmeshed in the grubbiest of party politics. It will be hard. In a year's time, perhaps earlier, he may look much less regal—and much less able to work miracles.
The wrong job? | The Economist

Thank you for the enlighting article, Al Bina. Everything The Economist warned for did become true. One can not be Prime Minister and remain a figure above the parties. That former King Simeon did not see this coming is pretty telling for his naivity or his unrealistic view.
