Now I know you are going to say "This is not Royalty!" but I don't believe there is collection category for politicians.
A prime minister is as close as you can get. Also in Royalty deprived nations such as the USA, a president counts too. Hence a President Eisenhower plate is listed among Royalty.

Margaret Hilda Thatcher, Baroness Thatcher, LG, OM, PC, FRS (née Roberts; born 13 October 1925) served as British Prime Minister from 1979 to 1990 and leader of the Conservative Party from 1975 until 1990, being the first and only woman to hold either post.
She was also considered one of the most powerful leaders of her time and was named Iron Lady by the Soviets due to her strong ties with Ronald Regan and his Anti Communism stance. She also sent the British Navy against the Falkland Island take over.
Thatchers tenure as Prime Minister was the longest since that of Lord Salisbury and was the longest continuous period in office since the tenure of Lord Liverpool who was prime minister in the early 19th century. She was the first woman to lead a major political party in the UK, and the first of only three women to have held any of the four great offices of state. She currently has a life peerage as Baroness Thatcher, of Kesteven in the County of Lincolnshire, which allows her to sit in the House of Lords.
