Máxima of the Netherlands, Mathilde of Belgium, Letizia of Spain: What do these queens actually do all day? "ZDF-History" provides insights into their everyday professional lives.

As economists, psychologists and journalists, the queens are well trained for their engagement at home and abroad, for example at the United Nations. Their schedules are tight, no two days are the same.

The wives of crowned heads of state play a significant role, even though the constitutions of their countries do not attribute any official function to them. How do the young queens of Europe use their leeway? What can they achieve? What role models do they follow? What are the differences between then and now? The film reflects on the role of queens with a view to history, the present and the future.
