As New York City prepares itself for a pre-holiday visit from Kate Middleton and Prince William, many residents of the five boroughs are wondering how the royal couple will spend their time in NYC.

Most of the itinerary is being kept under wraps, but we now know that Will and Kate will become the first members of the royal family to pay a visit to Brooklyn, attend an NBA game...and party with an American king.

Yes, the royals will be sitting courtside when the Brooklyn Nets take on the Cleveland Cavaliers on December 8. 

Naturally, Will and Kate will get the whole VIP experience, including a meet-and-greet and photo session with LeBron James - for which they'll reportedly be paid a cool million in cash:

Is Kate Middleton expecting twins? That's the rumor going around royal circles, for the second time in as many years, and Kate Middleton pregnancies.

At the root of this is Kate's severe morning sickness, or hyperemesis gravidarum, that has sidelined her both times and is often associated with twins.

Twins didn't materialize as rumored the first time Prince William got Kate Middleton pregnant, of course, so it would still be a long shot this time.

But a lot of people over in the UK would apparently take that action!

The royal betting market, which hilariously exists, has seen plenty of wagering on the 32-year-old having not one, but two royal babies come 2015.

The William Hill betting firm says it recently received about 200 bets on the arrival of twins, including "a significant gamble" that was made in York.

That's enough to send the odds tumbling down from 20:1 to 9:1.

Kate Middleton loves her Stuart Weitzman "Corkswoon" wedges, and the Duchess has proven the footwear is not a hindrance to athletic activity.

We've seen her play volleyball in them before, and this week, Kate showed us that she can dominate at three tins while rocking the sky-high shoes.

While looking amazing, as evidenced by this awesome GIF:

Perhaps this will put an end to the incessant Kate Middleton pregnant talk?

Probably not for more than a week or two, but still. She's not, people!

In a cerulean Stella McCartney dress with her favorite navy blazer, Prince William's wife was a hit at a reception in Glasgow, Scotland at the Commonwealth Games.

The traditional game involves knocking down three tins with a ball, running into the middle of the square, rebuilding them, and hopping over the tins three times.

Middleton's husband William and her brother-in-law Prince Harry later tackled the same game against one another, but Kate stole the show as always.

Is Kate Middleton pregnant again for real? That's the rumor going around, and British bookmakers are seeing heightened activity as a result!

Kate, William and Harry

Just as Prince George's birthday is approaching, and with old friend Jessica Hay "confirming" her second pregnancy, the rumor mill is working overtime.

Eager royal family fans are wondering when a little sister or brother may join the adorable royal baby in the palace nursery. Could it be within a year?

A British bookmaker is encouraging that speculation ... or was, until a firm called Coral halted all bets on the pregnancy of the Duke and Duchess Monday.

A series of bets were placed online Monday night on whether Kate Middleton is indeed expecting a second child right now, which makes you wonder.

As in, wonder what those people know ... and wonder who bets on celebrity gossip?!

"When bets come in at once late in the evening, it sets alarm bells off," Coral's Nicola McGeady said, noting that up until yesterday, "It's been quiet."

For a royal appearance on behalf of Britain's bid for the America's Cup 2017 at London's National Maritime Museum, Kate Middleton looked the stunning part.

Donning a nautical black and white Jaeger dress featuring contrasting trim along the neckline, arms and waistband, the 32-year-old was a vision of summer.

We can officially put those Kate Middleton pregnant rumors to rest, too:

In addition to meeting and greeting the members of the country's sailing team, Kate Middleton chatted with Olympic gold medalist Sir Ben Ainslie, 37.

"She was asking lots of technical questions; she knew her stuff," the sailor said. "We were all sharing sailing stories, and I think her sailing comes from her family."

Ainslie didn't elaborate won hether Middleton relayed the tale of how she beat husband Prince William in sailing during their April 2014 tour of Australia.

He did express his gratitude for having the Duchess' support.

Everybody has to start somewhere, right? Right. For some of Hollywood's best and brightest, that somewhere is on the playing field and not the movie set. 

Yes, it's true. Many of our favorite stars had aspirations of becoming professional athletes when they were children, just like you probably did. (But not me. I always dreamed of being a rock star. We can all see how THAT turned out.)

You might know that Justin Bieber loves to play hockey, but did you know he's also pretty decent at basketball? And did you know that rapper 2 Chainz was a star high school hoops standout in Atlanta?

Kate Upton, SI model, actress, and all around hottie used to ride horses! And then there's Duchess Kate Middleton who is great at basically everything she does, including besting Prince William in sailing.

Take a look at these 13 celebrity athletes who are probably better athletes than you. And me. (Hey, we're all good at something, right? Right. Let's keep telling ourselves that.)

Kate Middleton played some volleyball this morning in her third formal public appearance since giving birth at an East London event for the charity SportsAid.

The athletic Duchess is a patron for the organization, and she showed her affinity for sports again today in a Breton-style top, skinny jeans and five inch wedges.

At one point, Kate Middleton jumped and spiked, baring her midriff as she leapt for the ball, no doubt causing London’s tabloid editors to have heart palpitations.

Bump, set, spoke ... in sales!

Middleton's inadvertent stomach reveal showed it to be stunningly flat, with nary a sign that she was very pregnant less than three months ago.

Some women just make it look so easy.

Will Kate Middleton have a c-section or a natural birth?

Will she welcome a boy or a girl? With what color hair?

When will he/she arrive? And what will the name be?

For royal watchers - and gamblers - worldwide, there's a lot riding on these questions, as sports books say they've seen a surge in action since December.

"The second we found out that she was with child," in December 2012, said Rupert Adams of William Hill, one of the largest bookmakers in the U.K.

Betting on Kate Middleton baby names has become a British craze this spring, which is pretty hilarious, but also not entirely surprising.

People will bet on anything, after all, and this is a particularly fun topic to speculate about. So which name is currently most popular among bettors?

Royal Family

Based on the number of bets placed, Britain's bookmakers say Alexandra is the clear favorite, with the odds already down to a surprising 2-1 as of Thursday.

Elizabeth, Diana and Victoria are close behind, following widespread speculation that the royal couple is expecting a girl - which is not even confirmed.

All things considered, and assuming Kate Middleton is pregnant with the royal heiress, the bookies - and the gamblers - are likely on the right track.

As if Kate Middleton weren't cool enough, she showed off her sporty side playing ping pong and basketball at a community center in Scotland yesterday.

While six months pregnant, mind you!

She and Prince William duked it out at the Donald Dewar Leisure Centre in Glasgow, partaking in a game of table tennis, much to the delight of local residents.

The mom-to-be, who revealed her due date earlier in the day, also put her basketball skills on display by shooting some hoops, and wasn't terrible!

William and Kate are on a two-day tour for their foundation, which hopes to foster a new generation of young sports coaches, among other noble efforts.

The athletic royals scored big with this visit!
