Earlier in March, Bindi tied the knot with Chandler Powell, as reported by Good Morning America. At her wedding, Robert walked her down the aisle wearing khaki.

It was his way of honoring their late father. Terri revealed that when Robert was little, he and his father wore matching khaki outfits to a wedding.
