A very early design of Princess Celestia for the 2008 MLP:FiM pitch bible. Back then she was a full-fledged Queen.

She looks just as regal. She should've remained a queen.

I can see a definite relation to the art of the legend of the two sisters.

Very wonderful! Although it was changed to princess because queens got a bad rep(thanks to disney, but the original endings are a lot worse. Example, the queen in sleeping beauty is made to dance in red-hot shoes until she dies) but it would have been empowering to have non evil female queen in power. I seriously wonder what's going to happen in the future for Celestia and Luna.

What made you decide to make her a princess instead of a queen?

The shows producers gave Celestia the title of Princess instead of Queen, because they thought "Princess" instead of "Queen" would be more appealing to little girls, which were the original target audience of the show, not adults. As you probabley know the Disney PRINCESS franchise, is very popular amongst little girls, so Hasbro decided to follow this and have the female royalty titled as Princesses. Also, I watched a video on YouTube about MLP and the producers also called the female royalty (including Celestia) princesses because they thought little kids would associate Queens with evilness. 
Personally, I've grown used to the rulers being called Princesses but like Lauren Faust, I think Celestia being titled as a queen would make much more sense.
