For the same reason you always have the unchanging это in the following sentences:

  • Это моя мама.
  • Это инженер.
  • Это окно.
  • Это окна.
  • Это книга.
  • Это компьютеры.
  • Это моя любимая книга.
  • Это картина.

Which is the difference between красивая and прекрасная?

Well, красный was a word for "beautiful" (in modern Russian, not so much: it is "red") and пре- is the prefix with "extra, more, very" being one of the primary meanings.

So прекрасный is even better than just beautiful.

It is also used as "great, perfect, extremely good".
