    Lack of adhesion between wall and tile adhesive . Or they tiled onto painted surface. How long have they been there

    Probably since the mid to late 90s by the looks of the pattern on the tiles around the border which is like a 90s mosaic, can I fix myself, seems to be getting worse and spreading across the window due to the weight pulling them down

    They need to be carefully removed and the wall checked for any damp ingress or cracks.

    Take them down carefully. If wall surface is ok them refit with new tile adhesive. You need to make up a temp support whilst the tiles are setting. Would suggest a cross piece of timber under the tiles and supported by a few other bits
