No problem!Okay. You almost certainly can't get the Republic back in Germany so I'm imagining a "good old" abandonment of civil government in favor of rule by the Army. In the scenario you provide Stalin is still the main driver of events from '42. Thanks for adding the broad description of the settlement.
As for a return to republicanism/democracy in Germany, I do wonder if Germany's new military leadership is going to want to try blaming the civilian politicians for Germany's WWII defeat just like they previously blamed the civilian politicians for Germany's WWI defeat. If so, there could be significant support in favor of restoring republican democracy to Germany.
One would think that the new German leadership might have its fair share of monarchists, but at the same time, I'm highly skeptical that Britain and France are actually going to be willing to agree to a Hohenzollern restoration in Germany after fighting one Kaiser in WWI and a wannabe Kaiser in WWII.
