Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia reported that rather than wearing the legally required helmets, the three kings were sporting their usual headgear of golden crowns as they made their way to Recarte y Ornat primary school in Zaragoza.
The three wise men were stopped by local police in the centre of the city and were made to wait for 45 minutes, while across the city 400 pupils eagerly awaited the arrival of the kings and their gifts.
Organizers of the royal visit however acknowledged that the local police "behaved quite well when you think of how large the fine could have been".
The size of the fine for the regal visitors was not reported.
