The Most Reverend Sir Paul Alfred Reeves GCMG GCVO QSO (December 6, 1932–) was Archbishop and Primate of New Zealand and Bishop of Auckland from 1980 to 1985 and Governor-General of New Zealand from 1985 to 1990.
Sir Paul was educated at Wellington College, Victoria University of Wellington, St John's College , Auckland and St Peter's College, Oxford (where he is also a Fellow). He is famous for making a complete mockery of the honours system, with his overt support for the idea of New Zealand becoming a republic, whilst simultaneously holding a knighthood. This has lead to the suggestion that Eugene Terreblanche should present the MOBO (Music Of Black Origin) awards.
Sir Paul was first made Bishop (of Waiapu) in 1971.
