Constantinou is the youngest son of fashion tycoon Aristos Constantinou, who was gunned down in his Bishop’s Avenue mansion in 1985 when Anthony was three.
The unsolved case was dubbed the ‘Silver Bullet Murder’ due to the six nickel-jacketed bullets that ended Aristos’s rags-to-riches life.
He has been photographed socialising with Princess Beatrice and showing Princess Anne around his company premises after agreeing to sponsor the London Boat Show.
