HTML Widgets not rendering correctly when using GoDaddy Managed Wordpress with Elementor

Trying to update our company website and adding a custom menu/album. It is GoDaddy hosted as a managed Wordpress site using Elementor to design. I have tried using the HTML widgets supplied and found that they are not working as expected. The code however works when I use it externally/locally in a regular html document. I have tried using either of the two widgets and have also updated all of the plugins/Elementor itself.

Note: I did have a prior image where it seemed like wordpress would not utilize the js files externally referenced, so I copied them locally into our file structure and referenced them from there. I apologize if any of this seems extremely stupid, I am not a very experienced coder/designer and was more or less just handed off this project as the shortest straw drawer.

The widgets I am using:

What it's supposed to look like:

Here is the code:

<html>
  <head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="user-scalable=no, width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1">

    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://www.grafico.com/wp-content/plugins/GavinsWidget3/GavinsWidget3_Src/jquery.min.js"></script>

    <link href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/nanogallery2@3/dist/css/nanogallery2.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://www.grafico.com/wp-content/plugins/GavinsWidget3/GavinsWidget3_Src/jquery.nanogallery2.min.js"></script>

  </head>
  <body>
<!--MODIFY THE ALBUM GALLERY PREFERENCES HERE-->
    <div ID="ngy4p" data-nanogallery2='{
        "flickrAPIKey": "55bf5b423a3609849b017425cf1e3d88",
        "userID": "193200798@N04",
        "kind": "flickr",
        "thumbnailHeight":  200,
        "thumbnailWidth":   300,
        "allowList": "E+T",
        "thumbnailLabel": {
          "position": "overImageOnBottom",
          "align": "left"
        },
        "thumbnailAlignment": "center",
        "thumbnailOpenImage": true
      }'>

    </div>

  </body>
</html>

    So I am not entirely sure what it was, but if I had to guess I'd say there is a lag on some particular elements involved in our site as the html widgets are now rendering correctly...really bizarre. Other changes seem to happen close to instantaneously however so I am not entirely sure why this is the case.

    You never actually mentioned in your comments what it is you are trying to achieve and what is wrong with the code. Please give some details as I am completely confused by your post.
