The house of Orange was a branch of the germanic house of Nassau, whose site is in Rhineland-Palatinate, quite far from the NL.
The Ottonian line of the Nassaus established in the dutch region but they were not "native".
I won't enter on the discussion that both lines of the Nassaus are extinct in the male line, the Ottonians with Wilhelmina, the Walramians with Charlotte of Luxembourg.
The Grimaldis of Monaco are native from neighbouring Genoa.
As to the Orange, they are also extinct in the male line, when Louise-Hypolite Grimaldi married Jacques de Goyon de Matignon, who assumed the name and arms of his wife's family.
