Thank you for your question.

It depends on whether and how the beneficiary who died was related to the testator, and whether the pre-deceased beneficiary had any descendants.

Please describe the situation a little more.

Unless the Will provides otherwise, the bequest to the niece lapses and her share becomes part of the rest of the estate, see
