About Robert
The name Robert is an ancient Germanic given name, from Proto-Germanic *Hrōþi- “fame” and *berhta- “bright” (Hrōþiberhtaz). Compare Old Dutch Robrecht and Old High German Hrodebert (a compound of Hruod (Old Norse: Hróðr) “fame, glory, renown” and berht “bright”). It is also in use as a surname. It is the second most frequently used given name of ancient Germanic origin.After becoming widely used in Continental Europe it entered England in its Old French form Robert, where an Old English cognate form (Hrēodbēorht, Hrodberht, Hrēodbēorð, Hrœdbœrð, Hrœdberð, Hrōðberχtŕ) had existed before the Norman Conquest. The feminine version is Roberta. The Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish form is Roberto.
Robert is also a common name in many Germanic languages, including English, German, Dutch, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, and Icelandic. It can be used as a French, Polish, Irish, Scottish, Finnish, and Estonian name as well.

The couple’s wedding ceremony took place hours before a new restriction in Australia went into effect, which limits weddings to just five people, including the couple, the witnesses and the celebrant.

Bindi and Chandler chose to make it a small ceremony, without guests, because of health concerns amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The two share a very tight-knit bond and frequently post about their close family on social media. Last year, Bindi Irwin told ET why it was so important for her younger brother to walk her down the aisle.

“I’m always so grateful that Robert is there, and he has been such a big part of my life and he’s always stepped up and been the one to give me a hug when I need it and encourage me forward in life,” she told the outlet. “He will definitely be the one to walk me down the aisle when the time comes, and I think that will make it really special.”

In his post, Robert Irwin also mentioned how his sister honored their father’s memory on her special day.

“I know that Dad was with us, and we are all so delighted for your future as husband and wife,” he wrote. Bindi Irwin described in her wedding announcement that her family lit a candle in her father’s memory at the ceremony. She said their family shared, “tears and smiles and love.”

Bindi Irwin was clearly touched by her brother’s heartfelt message. “Love you so much, Robert,” she commented on his post. “Thank you for being there to walk me down the aisle. You mean the world to me.”
