Nuances between "à qui" & "auquel" (etc.)

I know that with living beings we have the choice between "à qui" vs. "auquel/à laquelle/auxquels/àuxquelles". Is there any nuance in terms of formality or elegance between the use these two options?

Bonjour Mon,

I would say that 'auquel etc' is considered more formal than 'à qui'

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
