Where is this "inconsistency"? The Borbon-Parma house were princes long before the Nassau dynasty elevated themselves to monarchical status in the 19th century. I'd suggest you look at the wider context of events and timeline of that B-P ennoblement. It was an attempt by the Dutch to shut down the frictions that Carlos Hugo de Borbon-Parma had created with his Spanish claims. Making his descendants "Dutch" and ennobling them as "Dutch princes" was a way to step aside from those dynastic disputes in Spain that the Dutch did not want to become a part of, even on the margins.
