I was making a connect wall, and I finished it late at night (2:00 am). I was glad and it was one of my hardest yet. However, as I took a sip from my coffee cup, I fell asleep and (I assume) coffee splashed onto my puzzle.

I woke up at around 10:30, and noticed that coffee had covered the bottom right phrase in my puzzle, and realised that I couldnt remember the phrase there!

So, I would've corrected it, and figured I just needed to solve my puzzle for myself. But I'm lazy. So solve my puzzle.

  Hanger Lane     Wimbledon     Elizabeth      Tabby

    Spain       French Open     Victoria       Ringo

    Jane          Taiwan        Joanna        Chateau

   Temple         George         John      *coffee spill* 

a) Propose a word or phrase to fill the gap currently occupied by the coffee spill.

b) Sort the 16 words into 4 groups of 4.

I'm not finished yet but I put some together.

King/Queen: George, Victoria, Elizabeth, John(?)
Tennis tournament: Wimbledon, French Open
Building: Temple, Chateau, Hanger Lane(?)
Music: Jane, Ringo

What I also found out is that

many things probably has to do something with the UK or French.

I hope it will help someone or I'm totally wrong
