Apparently it may be translated into English. That awful snob Taki (friend of the king) wrote about it in the 'Spectator':

Quote:
The memories remain. The only good thing about austerity is that no old buildings have been knocked down. Things have just got grubbier. During the concerts I sat with the Greek royal family, including King Constantine’s sister, Queen Sofia of Spain. The King has written his memoirs, or how things really were, finally telling his side of the story. Excerpts from the book tripled the circulation of the newspapers that carried them. The book is being translated into English and here is my proposal: King Constantine has agreed that I find him an English and American publisher. No one has a more interesting story to tell. King at 24 and married to the most beautiful princess in Europe, a coup-maker against the colonels on 13 December 1967, exiled after its failure, yet denied by opportunistic and lying politician his role as the first man to stand up to the military. And what a life he’s had despite that major setback. As a young crown prince he stayed with Eisenhower and de Gaulle, saw the Kennedys and LBJ up close, and knew every mover and shaker of his day, as they say. In the Rome Olympics in 1960 he won an Olympic gold medal in sailing.

RBN - Royal Book News: King Constantine II looking for an English-language publisher

Here's what Marlene had to say about this back in February. IF there is an English version, it's more likely to be abridged and probably skewed more in favour of royalty stuff instead of Greek political stuff.

Wow, fascinating snippets. I love it! So, has Constantine found an English language publisher, or are these translations and illustrations of what has already been published in Greece?

Im not sure. Stef told me back on the "KC and the Colonels" thread that a publisher has been found and an english edition may be coming out in November (most likely mid 2017 for this part of the world). Im not sure if this is the case or not; Stef is pretty reliable about these things but anything could happen.
