Can an Executor be a beneficiary under my Will? 

It is a common misconception that an executor can not be a beneficiary of a will.  
 
It is, however, perfectly normal (and perfectly legal) to name the same person (or people) as both an Executor and a Beneficiary in your Will, but it is important to ensure that the executor does not witness your will otherwise he/she will not be entitled to receive their legacy under the terms of the will.
