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.

The king had today a meeting with SIPRI (Stockholm International Peace Research Institute). 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.

King Carl Gustaf had yesterday evening a meeting concerning the Royal Technology Mission Japan.
The Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences tells at their website, that about 35 people travel with "Royal Technology Mission" to Japan on 15-20 February. It's the 23rd time the king is with at the mission. The delegation will among other things visit the camera manufacturer Canon, Fujifilm, and science and technology center Miraikan. In addition, the group will have a meeting with Prime Minister Shinzō Abe and possibly also meet Emperor Akihito.

The king takes off from work and travels to Mexico on a private trip in eight days. The news was given by the Marshall of the Realm to the ministers at government's meeting today. Although Crown Princess Victoria is heavily pregnant, she jumps in as a substitute and takes over the king's duties.
The Ministry of Justice's protocol made after the meeting shows that Carl XVI Gustaf is in Mexico during the period January 23 to 31, and that he therefore is "unable to perform his duties as the Head of State". Crown Princess Victoria takes over as temporary regent and fulfills the tasks of the Head of State when he is away. And then it does not matter that she is heavily pregnant.
Margareta Thorgren stated earlier this week that there is no fixed end date for when she stops working before giving birth.
- The Crown Princess will work as far as possible to the birth, she told to Expressen's Johan T Lindwall.
Crown Princess Victoria has previously been standing in for the king as Head of State in connection with state visits abroad.
Expressen has sought Thorgren for a comment.

The queen doesn't have work events during that time either, so it seems that she will accompany the king on a trip to Mexico.
