The following rank structure for the Royal Guard was compiled using the structures of Yeomen of the Guard, the Honourable Corps of Gentlemen at Arms, the current enlisted rank structure of the British Army, as well as that which has been implied throughout different episodes of the series and (minimally) fanon concepts.
(OF-7) Captain of the Guard (OF-6) Captain of the Solar Guard* (OF-6) Captain of the Lunar Guard* (OF-6) Captain of the Crystal Guard* (OF-5) Lieutenant of the ---- (OF-4) Standard Bearer of the ---- (OF-3) Adjutant (OF-2) Harbinger (OF-1) Exon
All OF are above OR, similarly, there are more individuals that are OR than OF. There is only one pony for each OF rank between OF-4 and OF-7.
Part of the difficulty, so to say, was that the Royal Guard has been stated to be both the Princesses’ Guard, but also the official protectors of Equestria. As I’m sure anyone would figure, an army has a larger rank structure than a guard. But this is over all kind of in between. The British Army has up to OF-10. Going up to OF-7 implies a much smaller force, since that’s the way pyramid structures work.
*Order denotes prestige.
