It does depend on your villain. Did you have any information on him? Tight / loose. Is he often aggresive? etc.

as played:
Standard open with QQ : perfect
Call a 3bet? : no me, I would be 4betting QQ. If I get 5bet shoved, I fold to an unknown at 2NL. 5bets on 2NL are always eighter KK or AA

Cbet on the flop: yes! Arggrrr he calls....
Donkbet on turn? forget about is, he has a King 100% of the time.

River (which I would not have seen), due to the 3rd king the chance he actually has a king is reduced a lot, so yeah, I would be calling this.

Why are you betting the flop? Your previous action was CALL. Leading out makes no sense.

I'm ok with either a 4bet or a call preflop. Because QQ has showdown value, I'm more inclined to call against an unknown player at microstakes. On the flop, don't lead. There's no point because you're never folding a better hand and you might fold a jack.

Just check and maybe call one street. I think if he fires turn there's going to be enough combos of AK in his range that we can just let it go.
