The translation of what the Queen said could perhaps have been better. Her concerns were very valid. Many of the assignments the two Princesses have been on involved people from parts of the world where vaccinations are not as common. Illnesses that we take for granted to be very rare due to all children being vaccinated are more common in other parts of the world. The two Princesses are not sitting in an office all day. They are out among people and have much higher degree of risk in being exposed. The Queen also said ...perhaps they could cut back a little on their travel...

Exposed to what? People? That's the point of being a royal.
The pregnant women I know do not only sit in open plan office space but are exposed to people all day, to germs or bacteria while working and commuting to work by train with thousands of other people. In their lunch break they do grocery shopping mingling with hundreds of people in supermarkets. They manage to work 8 hours per day until 4 weeks before giving birth to healthy children.
So yes, I feel the Queen's comments are very much out of touch.

Queen Silvia herself was on a state visit to Belgium in 15-18 March 1977 when she was pregnant, to Germany on 20-27 March 1979 when she was pregnant and and to Mexico on 17-23 January 1982 when she was pregnant.
These are only state visits, about Silvia's other travel is a little difficult to find information.

While Victoria and Daniel were on their trip to Peru and Colombia, Svensk Damtidning told that Victoria's adjutant had a hand sanitizer all the time in her bag/hand to give to Victoria and Daniel. The safety and health of the royals is very well taken care of at these kind of visits. The specialists and experts from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs check all the possible risks at these kind of trips months before the trip is made.

At the meeting participated speaker of the Parliament Urban Ahlin, chairman of SIPRI Governing Board Sven-Olof Petersson, director Dan Smith and deputy director Jakob Hallgren. SIPRI was established in 1966 following an initiative by Prime Minister Tage Erlander in memory of Sweden's 150-year-long peace. The King was informed about the activities during the 50th anniversary year.
