A legacy in the Will covers only those descendents born during the deceased's lifetime. Hence the great grandchild born after their great grandfather's death would not be entitled to any legacy.
Only if great grandfather had set up a trust within his Will, to cater for all current and future great/grandchildren would any children born after his death be entitled to benefit.
I hope this assists and sets out the legal position.
