A combination of the C.E. being a satellite/semi-independent "province" of Equestria and it being a separate state in personal union with Equestria seems like the most workable answer in mind. It's not the kind of thing the show's going to spend time addressing in detail, so we can headcanon pretty freely here!

I think at least part of the reasoning behind them both being princesses was so that neither would stand above the other. That said, I don't think Equestria was ever explicitly called a kingdom, so we might as well just say that it's officially a principality.

As for Cadance... well, I suppose we have to chalk that one to Equestrian royal titles working very oddly indeed, I fear :P Thank goodness for the canon at least having King Thorax (is that his official in-show title?) and Queen Novo, I say!

On an unrelated note, am I the only baffled at how the Equestrian railway system is arranged? I mean, first we have a random, lonely railway station leading to the middle of the frozen hind end of nowhere where the Crystal Empire conveniently happened to reappear (unless the Equestrian railway system is a lot older than ours and that station was built before the C.E. vanished, who even knows?), but the seeming insistence on that pattern of making the rails radiate out from Canterlot seems... impractical. Just look at Tall Tale and Vanhoover -- you'd need to go half the width of Equestria one way to Canterlot and then the same distance back to gaio from one to the other! You'd be making the same distance you'd need to literally cross the nation to move between two neighboring cities!
