    Re: does

    There's no main verb in your sentence:

    What does the Princess usually do during summer?

    I assume it's 'do'; it could be any verb though. Something needs to be there, otherwise it isn't a sentence.

    What makes a man dance?
    What does a man do?

    In the first sentence, 'makes' does not require an auxiliary, but in the second sentence, 'do' does. 'dance' is a noun (a bare inf. acting as an objective complement) in #1. Interesting.
