The Queen passing away was problematic for the title reveal because the UK was in a state of national mourning, and so promoting something live there called "Tears of the Kingdom" during that could be taken in bad taste. I don't think there's anything more to it than that; it's like how Advance Wars was pulled from releasing because the Ukraine war started very close to it and it could be bad taste to release a war game alongside an actual war breaking out.

That said, even if Zelda were to die at the start of the game she would probably be revived by the end, given there's a clear mechanic of time reversal in this game to undo things. I'm sure something has to happen to her in order for Link to end up by himself again and whatnot.

My guess is it isn't malicious and instead might be something to do with the power holding Ganon in the original reveal trailer, which Link comes into possession of as a replacement to the Sheikah slate so that the player gets forced into a clean start without the abilities of BotW.
Although I do wonder what the reason will be for Link losing the powers of the champions. I'd hope it isn't just removed with no explanation.
