When the queen has triplets, they are so alike that immediately after birth it becomes impossible to tell which is the eldest son, and therefore heir to the throne and betrothed to the princess. This was a fun take on the standard inheritance-based fairy tale that played around with not only the rule of three, but also of the conventions of the youngest son always being the one most likely to complete an impossible quest, and did it all with lots of Victorian "Well I never!"-ish hyperbole.
