After a 1967 military coup ousted his family from Greece, the palatial mansion in Hampstead Garden Suburb served as the Greek king’s home for four decades.
During that time, Constantine (who is a close friend of Queen Elizabeth, 89, and Prince Charles, 66) became godfather to Prince William and often hosted him and his younger brother at glamorous royal parties.
North London realtor Trevor Abrahmsohn used to live near the ex-king’s former home and says the young royals were frequent visitors to the posh neighborhood.
“We often used to see Princess Diana in her Mercedes convertible, which Charles forbade her to buy”, he told Hampstead & Highgate Express. “Prince William and Harry were often at parties there.”
The three-story property, bordering the area known to residents as “Billionaires Avenue,” has a master bedroom with en suite dressing room, bathroom and balcony, along with 12 additional bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a large garden and a swimming pool.
Constantine, first cousin to Prince Charles, bought the house in 1969, but in 2013 he moved back to his birthplace of Athens, where he was recently seen walking around with a cane.

A spokesman at London’s Greek Embassy confirmed that the dethroned 75-year-old ex-king had returned to live in Greece, even though the government seized the Tatoi Palace, his ancestral family home, after the 1974 abolition of the monarchy.
“Yes, he does live in Greece now, his children live in Athens, but as [Constantine] is a private citizen, I do not know where he lives exactly,” the spokesman tells PEOPLE.
