Gregor is trapped and its all for his own good?
Bujold really has a thing for this, she did hte same thing to Ista: It's
all for your own good, lovie, you don't want your troubles to come back.

And since they are guarding the Royal out of love, they will never, ever,
let their guard down.  Until the Royal is smothered by the guards and goes
quietly insane, or runs away.  Only Ista did better at running than Gregor
did ;)
