Why does Neil write "do not trust the youngest" in regards to the three Princesses. In my literary experience it's the eldest you shouldn't trust.

I think you might find the reason in your question.

I'm still confused. In my experience the youngest Princess is always the kind trustworthy one...

a kind trustworthy child often does not understand shades of truth.

A sweet naive child often leads people into exile and death.... in my literary experience

That is the experience and expectation. And that is the reason to change it.

Yeah, I agree that it's going against the usual, but I would have to say that it's because of a child's innocence/ignorance could have great repercussions.
Also, why would it be so unusual to have a truely nasty little girl? One that's the perfect temptress?
