Lady Macbeth has told Macbeth in I.v.63-64 to “look like the innocent flower,/But be the serpent under‟t.” How does she carry out this role in the following scene when Duncan arrives?

While Macbeth tries his best to look "normal", lady Macbeth is the consummate professional at looking like the innocent flower.  

All our service,
In every point twice done and then done double,
Were poor and single business to contend
Against those honors deep and broad wherewith
Your majesty loads our house.
