Good one, interesting how also the second morganatic line became extinct

Which line do you mean?

Or that both lines, Nassau-Weilburg and Orange-Nassau, became extinct in the male line and continued in the female line?

Not expert, that Merrenburg one with brother of Countess of Torby and his sons

The founder of the counts of Merenberg line is Prince Nikolaus Wilhelm of Nassau, which is from the Nassau-Weilburg line.

https://en.wikipedia.org/...ikolaus_Wilhelm_of_Nassau

Nikolaus Wilhelm, Prince of Nassau (1832 - 1905), was the only son of Wilhelm, Duke of Nassau by his second wife Princess Pauline of W?rttemberg. Therefore Nikolaus was the younger half brother of Adolphe, Duke of Nassau who became Grandduke of Luxemburg.

Nikolaus Wilhelm had married morganatically in London on 1 July 1868 Natalya Alexandrovna Pushkina. She was divorced from the Russian General Mikhail Leontievich von Dubelt, by whom she had a daughter. In 1868, George Victor, Prince of Waldeck and Pyrmont created her Countess von Merenberg. They had three children:
1. Countess Sophie von Merenberg (1 June 1868 - 14 September 1927); created Countess de Torby in 1891; married in Sanremo on 26 February 1891, Grand Duke Michael Mikhailovich of Russia (16 October 1861 - 26 April 1929). They had issue.
2. Countess Alexandrine von Merenberg (14 December 1869 -  29 September 1950); married in London in 1914 Argentine Don Maximo de Elia (1851 -  1929), no issue.
3. Count Georg Nikolaus von Merenberg (13 February 1871 - 31 May 1948); married firstly on 12 May 1895 in Nice, Princess Olga Alexandrovna Yurievskaya (8 November 1873 - 10 August 1925), daughter of Alexander II of Russia and his morganatic second wife, Princess Ekaterina Mikhailovna Dolgorukova, and had issue; married, secondly, on 2 January 1930 in Wiesbaden, Adelheid Moran-Brambeer ( 18 October 1875 - 12 May 1942), no issue.

Nikolaus-Wilhelm was in line of succession (Nassau and related). This also seem to include is male offspring. Other brothers of Nikolaus-Wilhelm and Adolphe had died young or unmarried (and childless). Adolphe's son Guilleaume IV had only daughters, and based on the Nassau family pact the succession in Luxembourg would go to Nikolaus and his male offspring. At the death of his uncle, Prince Nikolaus-Wilhelm in 1905, the only other legitimate male in the House of Nassau-Weilburg was Guilleaume's cousin, Georg Nikolaus, Count of Merenberg, the product of a morganatic marriage. So in 1907, Guilleaume declared the Counts of Merenberg non-dynastic, naming his own eldest daughter Marie-Ad?la?de (1894?1924) as heir presumptive to the grand ducal throne.

Countess Sophie von Merenberg (1 June 1868 - 14 September 1927); created Countess de Torby  in 1891; married in Sanremo on 26 February 1891, Grand Duke Michael Mikhailovich of Russia (16 October 1861 - 26 April 1929).

Sophie was later created Countess de Torby by her uncle, Adolphe, Grand Duke of Luxembourg (older brother of her father).

They had two daughters and one son:
1. Countess Anastasia Mikhailovna de Torby (9 September 1892 ? 7 December 1977); married, in 1917, Sir Harold Wernher, 3rd Baronet.
2. Countess Nadejda Mikhailovna de Torby (28 March 1896 ? January 1963); married, in 1916, Prince George of Battenberg (later 2nd Marquess of Milford Haven).
3. Count Michael Mikhailovich de Torby (8 October 1898 ? 8 May 1959).

Countess Anastasia (Zia) is the grandmother of the current Dowager Duchess of Westminster, Duchess of Abercorn, Countess of Dalhousie and Princess Alexander Galitzine.  The Dowager Duchess of Westminster is one of the six godparents of Prince William.

Countess Nadejda (Nada) is the grandmother of the current Marquess of Milford Heaven.

I take it this means she finished her undergraduate work.  I don't recall hearing about her actually graduating.  Glad she's actually doing something productive.

Last weekend, MT and Henri visited Sebastien at Sandhurst. They all look happy and Sebastien seems to look much better than last year and is the best looking of the four brothers at the moment. MT looks great but some pics of her seem to be heavily photoshopped.

I don't know......but boy has that boy have 'weird' eyes!

As one already mentioned here, how can two goodlooking parents have such an akward looking set of children (with the exception of Alexandra)

IMO, this is the least akward looking son at the moment. I've just compared him with his brothers, not with his dad. The eyes come from Henri's side, his eyes look a bit similar to Sebastien's eyes. I still think it is the inbreeding on Henri's side of the family that finally shows  Secret.

They all look very happy. 

I hope that Sebastian gets a job once he graduates.  It's long past time that one of the kids actually does something with their life (something they've actually earned, not something they've been given because of their family).
