IF there was going to be one day of the to avoid a royal muck-up, it would be on the Three Kings.
But sadly the Fiesta de los Reyes celebrations in Guadix got off to a shaky start when one of the performers fumbled from a float during the festive procession.
The fall from grace occurred around 6.30p.m on Wednesday when one of the Three Wise Men took a tumble on Mariana de Pineda.
The king escaped with a possible wrist fracture – and a royal flush – and had to be transferred to a nearby hospital.
Firefighters, the Local Police, and an ambulance crew all attended the scene and the incident is now under review.
