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.

Reload Bulgaria is a populist political party in Bulgaria. In June 2014, Barekov declared his support for the restoration of the Bulgarian Monarchy and Simeon II as Tsar of Bulgaria.
He vowed that should his party win a general election, he would introduce referenda on a number of issues, including the restoration of the monarchy.

And what about Tsar Simeon's successor. Has prince Boris/the prince of Turnovo shown any interest in being the tsar of Bulgaria at some point in the future? In that case he should probably started taking additional classes in Bulgarian so he at least speaks the language.

Well other then the fact that the current pretender to the throne virtually shows zero interest, how does his fellow Bulgarians feel about the subject? Reload Bulgaria is the only political party I'm aware of that'd support the idea of the Republic of Bulgaria becoming a restored Tsardom/Kingdom of Bulgaria, are there other organizations? How are the opinion polls from the people or the attitudes of other members of the Bulgarian Royal Family? Hopefully that should shed some light on the matter of a restored Bulgarian Kingdom/Tsardom in my opinion.

Boris just recently finished his degree in Fine Arts Sculpture and he seemed to look very serious and determined. Do you think we should expect him to be on the scene at the very least? I've seen the Tsar and Tsaritsa more this year and they are not getting any younger.

Which scene? The Prince of Turnovo, does he even live in Bulgaria?

As far as I'm aware most members of the Bulgarian RF live outside Bulgaria and last year the Bulgarian government ruled that the ex-King should return the Saragyol Estate to the Bulgarian State,not the best of signs.
