The monarchists are even today in France. To know the future is a gift only of prophets.

It would have to truly be a miracle of all coups that the Monarchy would be restored in France. I know it won't be in my lifetime.

Honestly almost nil chance. Restorations are very rare and usually restored from military coup (1st Greece, Spain, Cambodia). And the longer these defunct thrones go without restoration, less likely. In the Orleanist claim, since the 2nd republic we are on the 5th claimant. It has been 145 years, the chances of even a constitutional monarch are basically nil. The Romanians seem to be close, but the deposed king is alive. There is no gap, and even if restored under his child, will be like Spain, still a link. Greece and Bulgaria are the same, deposed still alive and a better chance than France but not likely.

Restorations are most unlikely. But even non-royal Houses can speak to imagination. See the media-frenzy around the new Duke of Westminster or the late Duchess of Alba. The time that nobles were in the Government, or were mighty warlords are far behind us. The interest remain. Often they still have a fabulous patrimonium. That is also the case with the Orléans family. Be it that the father of the current head was an extremely poor manager and almost lost everything this once dazzling wealthy family owned. What is left, is safely placed into the ownership of foundations. That does not make this family less fascinating.
