it was probably a good move to not announce the date of the baptism and to move it to a quieter location given the risks surrounding COVID. i also note that the attendance is much smaller than the extended family you'd expect to see, with the GD's Siblings and their family. shame to not see alexandra there. and also, what happened to sebastian?
the choice of louis as the godfather is also an interesting one. i thought felix would be the godfather chosen.
It's a bit odd that they picked the only sibling that is NOT in the line of succession. However, maybe they have a closer relationship than Guillaume and Félix.
Let's take a look at earlier godparent choices:
Of course, Alexandra is their number 1 option if they look for a godmother among their siblings. In the case of Louis, Tessy's first choice most likely was her twin brother (which they picked) leaving them with Alexandra is the godmother (in addition, asking Guillaume would probably have been frowned upon at that point). For Félix, something similar applied: Claire's only sibling is her brother Felix, so the logical choice, again leaving Alexandra is the preferred option for godmother. So, only for their second child they could choose between their brothers: Louis picked Guillaume and Félix picked Sébastien, so they might have a little more in common with the brother they picked than with the other brother(s). So, from that perspective, it makes sense that Guillaume picked the brother that he might enjoy a closer relationship with.
