Which upgrade? R6, RF 24-70mm F/2.8 L or neither?

Looking for wisdom from this community. I've been having great fun with my EOS RP and getting more photos that I love than I ever did with my 70D. I'm ready to invest a bit extra to take things to the next level.

Current kit:
RF 24-105MM f/4L
RF 16mm F/2.8
RF 50mm F/1.8
Samyang RF 85mm F/1.4 (this might be my favourite!)
EF 70-200mm F/2.8 L IS II

Godox V860iii
Godox Xpro-c

I do more shooting inside, plus I live in the UK so sunny weather is by no means a given. Most of my shooting is candid shots of family and events, all strictly amateur. I don't often have time to consider background so narrow depth of field is a definite bonus.

So the question, which of the above would give me the best improvement?

Sell the RP and buy the R6: Better low light, IBIS, faster shutter speed, faster burst mode, plus faster/better autofocus. (2 card slots is not really a big selling point, bigger battery might help but I've never run out on RP before I could charge it)

Sell the RF 24-105mm and buy the RF 24-70mm: Faster, people always say invest in glass before bodies. I often find myself shooting the 24-105mm at 105mm so worry I would miss the extra reach. Also wonder if I'll still end up using the primes in low light.

Or neither - just get better at using what I already have.

Cost of both upgrades is similar.

The 28-70mm is out of budget and too big to be practical for me to carry round I think.

Would appreciate any advice or personal experiences!
