    German and Russian Royalty left Europe about 1916 although a Hungarian Prince went home to claim his family homes found a palace intact except the peasants had stolen all the Woden floors and Doors and One stolen by the Government is a Museum so the Government must Par restitution for the Theft

    Once the Kaiser abdicated there was no longer any German Royals

    Yes some of the Russian royals settled in the U.K and some others settled in U.S.A. Most of the German Royal families stayed put in Germany.

    The immediate Russian royal family were all murdered by the Bolsheviks during the Revolution. Some of their distant relatives survive in exile. Maria Vladimirovna, Grand Duchess of Russia, a great-great-granddaughter in the male-line of Emperor Alexander II of Russia who was born in Spain, proclaimed herself the head of the imperial house. 

    Germany still has royals representing various historical kingdoms, but they don't play any formal state role. Georg Friedrich Ferdinand, Prince of Prussia is the current head of the Prussian branch of the House of Hohenzollern, the former ruling dynasty of the German Empire and of the Kingdom of Prussia.

    As it is over 100 years since both lost their monarchies it seems hardly surprising. There are living relatives: most of the royal families of Europe are related one way or another to the last Kaiser and the last Tsar, through either Queen Victoria or King Christian IX, or both.
