I'm not sure how a Kingsguard could have prevented a drunk king hunting a boar, but he was there, so I suppose he did let Robert die.
That's part of his tragedy. He really couldn't have stopped it, but you can be sure others think less of him for it. With King Robert, he could have taken a more active role in politics and realized Cersei had it in for him. Might have went along on the hunt with him. Most people underestimated Cersei though, so it's understandable.
