I know that most of Kaiser Wilhelm II's grandsons served in the Wehrmacht before and during WWII. Did some of them served in the Bundeswehr after WWII? I know there had to be men with royal titles that served both with the Wehrmacht and the Bundeswehr.

You have to consider the "Prinzenerlaß" : https://wikivisually.com/wiki/Prinzenerlass
With respect to service in the Bundeswehr, there was a tragic accident of a Kaiser's great-grandchild

2 Proofs : a Prinz zur Lippe-Weißenfeld continued to serve in the LW as fighter pilot and received the KC with Oakleaves from Hitler .
: an other Prince became HSSPF
After the fall of Mussolini, Hitler ordered again a Prinzenerlass,which proves that the first one was only partially executed .
