Wikipedia always shows up in German!!

I would pull my hair out if I had any!!
Kindle Paperwhite 2.
Is there a way to make sure Wikipedia is in English? I don't know why, but every time I click on a word, the dictionary definition comes up in English but Wikipedia is in German.
Can anyone help? Or do we just blame it on Brexit??

This is probably due to your ISP endpoint being (wrongly?) geolocated in Germany. Unfortunately the Kindle web browser has no way to set your preferred language, nor to force use of en.wikipedia.org in particular to look up Wikipedia articles, so you cannot fix this that I know of
