Iran. The Crown Prince could be this century's Juan Carlos, leading the people into a modern, peaceful future which they definitely need. This would work if the rest of the world supported him, especially the anti-king US.

Montenegro: The Prince is already on the government payroll, might as well give him a job and lend a little prestige to a small nation.

Georgia: The two competing families are united in one boy and the church supports restoration.

Hungary: They dropped the word "republic" from their name and there are appropriate Hapsburg contenders.

Ethiopia: What a terrible tradition to lose and the communists have ruined the nation. A pius and dedicated emperor might give them to push to start getting back on track.

You ought to replace Ethiopia with Russia on your list, because a significant current of monarchism exists in Russia. According to reliable opinion polls, 28 % of the Russians want restoration of the monarchy, and young Russians are more supportive of monarchism than older Russians. 37 % of the young Russians want restoration of the monarchy. In addition, some prominent politicians, including Sergey Aksyonov, the governor of Crimea, and Valentina Matviyenko, the chairman of the Federation Council, and some prominent Russian Orthodox Christian clergymen, including Vsevolod Chaplin, are monarchists. In Ethiopia, monarchism sadly appear to be insignificant.
Otherwise, your list is spot on. You're right about Crown Princess Margareta of Romania being unpopular, and Radu Duda, a former Securitate agent, is even more unpopular. I suspect the unpopularity of Margareta and Radu Duda being an important reason for the Romanian monarchy not being restored during the lifetime of King Mihai, who was universally admired by the Romanian people. King Mihai was actually granted the privileges of a former President of Romania, and it was proposed to grant the future heads of the royal family of Romania the privileges of King Mihai, but those proposals failed. A lot of Romanians wanted the monarchy to die with King Mihai. King Mihai was the Bhumibol of Romania, while Margareta is the Vajiralongkorn of Romania.
The head of the royal dynasty of Montenegro is actually an official representative of the state and is granted a salary equal to that of the President of Montenegro. It's a partial restoration of the Montenegrin monarchy.

Europe:
- France: an essential monarchy to restore. Bummer that it has so many pretenders... Germany and Russia would also be good choices.

Asia:
- China: their Communist regime is becoming more and more hypocritical. Also essential to our cause. Same goes for India and Iran.

Africa:
- Egypt and Ethiopia: extremely old monarchies, foolishly abolished.

Additionally, there is also Brazil. Come to think of it, the BRICS countries could sure use some Restorations...

I honestly don't care much about restoring the French monarchy, because most Frenchmen cherish the legacy of the French Revolution, and France wasn't a monarchy, when World War I, which caused monarchy to cease being the predominant form of government in Europe, broke out.
Being of German descent I would like the Hohenzollern monarchy to be restored, but monarchism is insignificant in Germany. But unlike most Frenchmen, most Germans aren't convinced anti-monarchists. They merely don't care about restoring the monarchy. 
The Russian monarchy is the #1 monarchy I want to restore, because the Russian monarchy has always been my favourite former monarchy, and because it's important to complete the rejection of the Russian Revolution. The Russian Revolution was far worse than the French Revolution. Fortunately, a strong monarchist current currently exists in Russia.
I'm a strong supporter of restoration of the Iranian monarchy, because I dislike the current regime of Iran, and because Reza Pahlavi enjoys widespread popular support in Iran.
I'm a strong supporter of restoration of the Ethiopian monarchy, because the imperial family of Ethiopia is descended from King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. What's not to love?

Here is my list of monarchies, which I want to restore:
#1: Russia
#2: Iran
#3: Ottoman restoration in Kurdistan and Turkey
#4: Germany
#5: Ethiopia
