  4. Hi Charlotte, I've been following your blogs for years and must say you do an excellent job! However, this morning I ran into a bit of a problem. After catching up on Duchess Kate news, I went to click on the picture entitled "Mad About Meghan" but for some strange reason it had disappeared along with the reference about your "sister blog". Not sure if anyone else has reported the problem but hopefully it will be an easy fix! Many thanks.

    1. Hello Carole-Anne,

      Thank you so much for alerting me to the issue. Is it working for you now?
