In addition to the details in the above answer, Lady Macbeth has to do almost the exact same thing she does in Act 3.4, earlier in the play. In Act 1.7 she comes looking for Macbeth because King Duncan, their guest for the night, has “almost supped,” almost finished eating, and Macbeth is no where to be found.  This is rude, of course; one doesn’t disappear when the king is dining with you.  But it also is just the kind of thing Lady Macbeth warns him not to do before Duncan arrives.  The kind of behavior that might raise suspicion.  She says in 1.5:Your face, my thane, is a book where menMay read strange matters.  To beguile the time,Look like the time [act how people expect you to act]; bear welcome in your eye,You hand, your tongue.  Look like th’innocent flower,But be the serpent under’t.In short, Macbeth just keeps messing up, and Lady Macbeth is left with trying to salvage what Macbeth ruins.
