Prince Gautama was the royal heir of a very small kingdom, and he gave up his royal status, practising spiritually at the wildness , and later according to the Buddhist texts, he found out the true meaning of the life, and became Buddha.

But if you studied the political situation of India at this period, you could find that his kingdom was in a very dangerous status, a small and weak kingdom , and her neighbours were strong and powerful, and eventually, his kingdom would be destroyed, so he chose to escape,  and later, his kingdom had been really destroyed, and his relatives were escaped.enslaved

from this point of view, his religious practice was actually a secret political escape?

Who can say..iow. what evidence do you offer to support this...other than the noted historical. Who ascribes to this as well as yourself and what sources do I have to review....in further analysis.

Where for example does Prince Gautama provide us his own opinion on this hypothesis.

Until then it's novel...but I need more for convincement.
