The point is Mecklenburg was not short of dynasts. Dynastic dukes of Mecklenburg were followed immediately by princes of Prussia. Ignorance of law does not mean that law doesn't exist... And if you say "post-deposition" etc etc, we should stop using their titles, period. You can be absolutely certain that a reigning German Emperor and King of Prussia would have immediately assumed the title and style of Grand Duke of Mecklenburg the moment the last dynastically-born member of the House of Mecklenburg died.

You are the one who asked why it would have gone to Prussia and I provided the answer.
