I've always thought since this project commenced that the Hohenzollerns should have a suite of apartments in this palace. It would be a partial restoration of their property rights.

Correction

Sorry, I made a mistake. The prince in the photos is actually Georg Friedrich. His twin sons are Karl Friedrich and Ludwig Ferdinand (born 2013). It's Georg Friedrich that would be the Kaiser's name, if he were to be restored to the throne.

If they pay for it, they can have whatever they want there. Also, there are many other palaces in Berlin and Potsdam so I don't see the need to give them a part of a cultural venue.

More on the Prince

The prince has already been able to use some of the former royal facilities that are located at Potsdam. Prince Georg Friedrich's civil wedding took place in Potsdam on 25 August 2011 with the religious wedding taking place at the Church of Peace two days later. It commemorated the 950th anniversary of the founding of the House of Hohenzollern. The religious wedding was broadcast live on local public television. The dinner, which many members of German and European royal families attended, was held in the Orangery Palace located in the park of Sans Souci.

Not sure if the German state or communists "paid" for the estates and palaces they took from the Hohenzollerns but whatever.

Doesnt matter bribri. The new city palace is funded by german people, and therefore is not in the ownerhip of the Hohenzollerns, and most likely never will be. Its our new "peoples palace" if you say so

Of course they didn't, but we are not talking about a palace that was taken by the communists from the Hohenzollerns, we are talking about a contemporary museum. You can't give them something they never had in the past. If this was a 100% accurate reconstruction, then we could talk about a possible return, but it isn't so the discussion is completely unnecesary.
When it comes to other properties that survived the war and communism, I would give them few palaces that aren't that much architecturally relevant, just imagine if Sanssouci was closed for the public because there is a royal dynasty (that's not even rulling anymore) living there.

About the possible restoration of monarchy, I would support it only for economical reasons. We can see how popular the Windsors are in UK and in the rest of the world, UK makes billions of euros because of them, especially when there's a royal wedding or a new baby, but I don't know how would it work in Germany as there are many royal families, like Wettins, Hanovers etc., then they should regain their position as well, and that may be a slightly big burden for Germany, especially since the borders have changed after the WW2.

That's why they aren't screaming on TV that they want their palaces back, but if they ever do, why not giving them some smaller property that's not too popular with tourists, like Marmorpalais (even though it's quite architecturally interesting and unique, at least to me). God knows how would we all feel if millions of people are admiring something that could've been our home.

Intended Usage for the Dome

What usage is planned for the dome area in the new building? Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't it a chapel in the original palace?

Regarding the Dome

Personally, I think that they could have left the dome off the reconstruction and it would not have been missed. This would be particularly true if they have no plans to use that space. That would have saved a considerable amount of money in the way of construction costs.

Parts of the area under the dome will be used for the exhibitions, so I don't know why Ludi is giving such a response.
