How many children did William and Adelaide have exactly? I found numbers between 2 and 7, but I have no idea how many children there were. Can anyone shine a light on this?

According to tradition, William, Duke of Clarence could not be present when Princess Adelaide arrived in England. The Prince Regent, standing in for the incapacitated King George III, welcomed Princess Adelaide to her new country.
