Well she's all ready in the royal service, and going on a mild pilgrimage would be thought to be safer than riding the mail, particularly for a young woman, and anyone in Liss's position with the least ambition would jump at the chance to be associated with the royal family. 

It was supposed to be a walk in the park.

With the way women read each other, I'm sure Liss could have gotten out, or been returned to her former duty.
