Why didn't the United Provinces or Netherlands pass into personal union in similar fashion as the Electorate of Hanover did when George I ascended to the British throne?

Why, in 1688 when William III of Orange took the English and Scottish thrones, did England not unify with the Netherlands?

The two fought together in the 90 years war, and shared monarch. Both seemed rather interlinked in this period of history with the same colonial interests. Scotland and England unified 19 years later so why was there no formal unification with the Netherlands too (esp. with the shared King)?

Sorry, my knowledge of 17/18th century history isn't too great.

William III of England (or Holland, take your pick) was installed by a foreign power. How did this happen and what were the consequences?

Is this better understood as a miltary process, an adversarial one, a political one, or something else?

What state's interests did William ultimately serve? England's? Holland's? Both? Other?

What if William the III of the Netherlands and England had children with Mary II of Great Britain?

For a period in the late 17th and early 18th century Great Britain and Holland were joined in personal union between William III of Orange and Mary II Stuart. The marriage produced no living children and when William died in 1704 the throne passed to Mary's sister Anne.

So I was wondering what would have happened if the two fairly big European powers of Great Britain and Holland were joined together in permanent personal union?

How much influence did the prince of Orange, William III, later King of England, really had during the First Stadtholderless Period(1650-1672) in the United Provinces?

'De Witt' brothers had called the United Provinces (the Netherlands), without a so called Stadtholder, a 'True Freedom' because now the people/citizens of the Republic alone could rule the country. This happened during 1650-1672. But the prince of Orange, William III, later king of England, lived during that period in the United Provinces. But how much influence did this man had in the Netherlands? He is family of the famous William of Orange and many people during that time saw him as legitimate leader/stadtholder. Did he had any influence behind the scenes before he was made stadtholder after 1672, or was he repelled from any influence as much as possible? And how was his influence after 1688, when he, after the Glorious Revolution, was made King of England?

Thank you all in advance!
