1) Children from the marriage of William and Mary
2) Children from Queen Mary II by another husband (had she survived her husband who was older and often ill)
3) Princess Anne
4) Children of princess Anne
5) Children of William III by a later wife
So had William remarried as was planned for him by some courtiers and several members of his family and had that second marriage produced a child. The child would have been Queen Anne's heir.
Now had somewhere between 1696 and 1702 a son been born to William III and a second wife i could see a situation where that boy would have been made Prince of Wales and overstepped his aunt but that is another matter.
Mary II had two miscarriages early in her marriage had either of them resulted in a healthy child that child of either sex would have become the monarch after both it's parents had died.
