I have spotted an error. I am researching the image of William V in British newspapers between 1780 and 1803. During the Coalition wars, the Stadtholder was not traveling with the army. Instead he organized the defence at home, in the Dutch Republic. I believe his son, the hereditary prince of Orange also named William and the later king William I of the Netherlands, is the one portrayed here, as he was a commander in the coalition army, and was frequently reported in newspapers doing that.
