Governor-General

On the advice of Prime Minister David Lange, Queen Elizabeth II appointed Reeves as the 16th Governor-General of New Zealand on 22 November 1985. His appointment was met with some scepticism due to his previous political involvement in Citizens for Rowling, opposing the Springbok tour of 1981, and the fact that he was an ordained Bishop. The Leader of the Opposition, Jim McLay opposed the appointment on these grounds,[3] stating "How can an ordained priest fulfil that [constitutional] role?". However, many Maori groups welcomed the appointment, with Sir James Henare arguing "It must be a fruit of the Treaty of Waitangi to see a person from our people".[3] He was the first (and up to the present day the only) cleric to hold the post. Moreover, as a member of the Puketapu Hapu of the Te Atiawa of Taranaki, he was the first (and again, only) Governor-General to be at least partially of Māori descent (although not the first to be fluent in Te Reo Māori).

There was some worry when it came to him using the title Sir. Members of the clergy in the Church of England do not received the accolade and title Sir when knighted. But as a member of the church in New Zealand which was disestablished from the UK was this the case too. To not the put the Queen in an awkward situation (Governors General would by tradition be knighted by her in person at Buckingham Palace), the Prime Minister of the time David Lange had him made a Knight Bachelor and dubbed (unusually) by the man he was to replace Sir David Beattie before meeting her.
