A WIZ-ICAL WEDDING!

Attention all wizards! In honour of the Royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Wizard101 is putting on a Royal wedding of its own and all Wizards are invited!

Her Royal Majesty the Queen of Marleybone
requests the honour of your company
at Wolfminster Cathedral
to celebrate the wedding of her adopted son, the Wizard
William
to the Wizard
Katie
on Friday, the 29th of April at four o’clock in the afternoon

All Wizard101 members are invited and to celebrate the upcoming nuptials, Her Royal Highness the Queen of Marleybone is issuing a special Royal Pass, which will grant all young Wizards studying at the Ravenwood School of Magical Arts the ability to access to all of the Worlds in the Spiral for free!  Wizards new and old will have the right to roam the realms for the whole weekend!  You’ve only got this opportunity for a limited time though – come Monday, the Royal Pass will be void and admittance to all worlds will be discontinued, unless you already had access to these Worlds prior to the wedding.

Win the Island Getaway House!
As part of the wedding celebrations, Queen of Marleybone is also giving young wizards the chance to win the Island Getaway House – the honeymoon destination of the Royal couple.  All you have to do to enter is take a screenshot of the Royal couple (who will be present in the game between 4pm and 6pm) and submit it before midnight on Friday 29th April 2011. The entry picked at random will win a
magical bundle of prizes!  There’s lots of wiz-ical things going on at Wizard101 this weekend, so check it out!

Notes to Editor
Wizard101 is an online game suitable for junior wizards. It’s an unlimited free trial collectible card MMO game, with further paid for packages and subscriptions available at differing price points. Check out www.wizard101.co.uk for more details.
